Well this game was a cacophony of nonsense. Verlander was just short of terrible. The hitting was horrible. The fielding was sub-par and the base running was embarrassing. The Tigers, tonight, were hard to watch.
The big news, however, was the release of general manager Dave Dombrowski. I wasn’t completely surprised. I figured that since he hadn’t been extended he was probably gone. I just didn’t expect it to be now.
I don’t know much about Al Avila but I was hoping Dombrowski’s replacement would be an advanced metrics person. Perhaps the former Angels’ GM? I’m sick and tired of the same old thing. I want to see something new; a change of direction. I want to see new ideas. I’m afraid we are going to get more of the same.
Or perhaps the Tigers could get a real old school GM that believes in good base running, moving runners over, scoring runners at third with less than two outs, not bouncing into five double plays a game. I want to see something other than the garbage I’ve watched this season. I want to see another World Series champion.
