I do not remember the last Tigers' team that simply quit like this one did. Or one ever in my lifetime. There were bad teams, but not ones without interest in competing.

Boyd didn't quit....2.16 ERA this month.

other starters this month...Sanchez (5.40), Bell (9.39), Farmer (8.59) & Zimmerman (8.00) are all talented but quit?

I don't care what or who is on your team, 11-34 stretch is unacceptable. A manager needs to motivate guys. Put them in winnable situations. Ausmus was bad. Losing is one thing they're not even competitive in games.. Too many blow ups.



Granted Avila needs to go to.. But Ausmus, turrible. Just turrible.

We were blown out in probably well above half the losses. Games were over by the 2nd and 3rd inning consistently. The team threw in the towel.

I predict omar will be asked to be the new manager before all is said and done

I things its always a bad idea to take an underling. Get a new guy in here.. Because if Omar is the guy some of the other guys currently here, end up staying .. which is not a good thing.

Ausmus, who was 312-325 in his four seasons with Detroit heading into Friday's game against the Minnesota Twins, agreed with Avila. Speaking to reporters ahead of Friday's contest at Comerica Park, Ausmus acknowledged that he likely wouldn't have returned to the Tigers if he was offered to stay, saying he believes the team needs a new voice as it undergoes a rebuild.

Good riddance. Don’t let the door hit ya in the ass on the way out.

Ausmus, 48, said he would like to manage again in the future.

Hopefully it’s in Japan.

Yeah, right - like he'd say thanks but no. It's his way of saying hmm hmm, I stink. That sounds like someone who quit himself down the stretch as well. Players following the manager's lead..

We can only hope Avila gets shit canned before long. Both of them are idiots.

Instead of great news that Chris Ilitch is going to sell the team, and bye bye head bozo Al Avila and the "Idiots deluxe" group of Chadd, Littlefield, Owens, Bream, and Pleis, we get 3 or 4 year old news that Ausmus is gone.
