that's how it works. The GM lets things go to hell then gets rid of the manager. It buys him time...he tells his bosses that it's the manager's fault. AA will get fired in a few years...I think that's inevitable.

I have no idea if Chris Ilitch should sell the team. I certainly question his judgement if he keeps AA as the GM. You are right...he should clean house. Fire everyone and start from scratch.

11-37 .229 WPCT

195 RS = 4.06 R/G

327 RA = 6.81 R/G


I am not sure there is a current Tiger pitcher who hasn't choked in the last 2 months. Most don't even belong on a 40-man roster.

Ausmus never learned how to use a pitching staff.

Former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus could be in mix for 2 jobs.

I can understand the dumb front offices of the mets and phillies, but the red sox?

I'm surprised but for a different reason.. He mentioned he would have left anyway even if the Tigers offered to keep him. Why would anyone hired a manager with that kind of attitude.
