Romine to play all 9 Sunday in what was his final game with Tigers

https://www.blessyouboys.com/2017/9/...innesota-twins

My question...how did he ever get to start 74 games? I am not discounting his role. As a defensive replacement/spot starter, I get it. But there were plenty of other options, no?

What a treat for all Tiger fans. They should let him manage the finale and show Brad the door a day early.

I think he should start the game as our SP.

Ausmess going out with a whimper. Embarrassing. Romine is appeasing Ausmus.

assmus lame duck manager. I find it rather odd Avila tells him he's done but yet he still manages the season out. Avila is such a dumbass. tell everybody you're all going to be traded in the spring then wonder why the season went up in flames. When is Avila getting fired? I mean seriously the guy is a massive dofus.

I have zero interest in seeing a crappy player play 9 positions that he's not good enough to be the starter at. I thought the same thing when Halter did it.

I take that back, he's probably good enough to be our 7th or 8th inning bullpen guy.

Yeah I don't get it either. Anyone on any team could do this. It's just a really stupid gimmick.
