The Chicago White Stockings have fired manager Jimmy Wood. Wood's replacement is a surprising choice; unknown 37 year old Taiwanese manager Tze-meng Goei.

Chicago is currently on a 9 game losing streak and are in last place in the National League at 8-12. Less than two months ago Chicago were at 8-3 and leading the NL by 2.5 games. The White Stockings have not won a game since losing third baseman Levi Meyerle to injury in June.
