Norris reacts to dismissal of Arnsberg
Astros pitcher Bud Norris, who didn’t get a chance to comment about the dismissal of pitching coach Brad Arnsberg prior to Tuesday’s game because he was pitching, said following a 1-0 loss to the Pirates that he was sorry to see him go.
“It’s tough, you know,” Norris said. “Some of us were a little upset, but what needs to be done, needs to be done. That’s not stuff we can control, unfortunately. Arnsberg always had our back and I can’t give the guy enough praise for what he taught me in the year and a half he was here and everything I’ve learned from him over a year and a half is over the moon.
“I have to give him a lot of credit for helping me be who I am today and for helping be get better and progress. It was tough, but if we needed to make a move, we needed to make a move. Like I said, those decisions aren’t up to us.”
