If he doesn't stubbornly stick to "old school" ideas and is willing to adapt to new strategy/analytics, I'm OK with seeing what he can do. At the very least, hopefully he can keep a clubhouse together and command some respect (whatever that's worth). That said, I don't think it's going to matter one way or the other, no manager is winning with this team.

Tigers make shrewd move in landing Ron Gardenhire.

Lynn Henning is the biggest scrotum slurper of all the Tigers beat writers.

Gardenhire pick further confuses Tigers plans. another Tigers' beat writer who gets it.

I'm hoping he will command the respect of the team a lot more than Brad seemed to. At the very least he better be more demanding of the type of effort and competitiveness we expect to see from a young team.

We'll see how he does. Have no big issues with it. The team will suck for a while regardless of the manager more than likely.

Yeah I'm completely indifferent about this hiring. Someone has to be the manager of a team that's going to lose 90+ games a year for the next several seasons.
