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.

We could be watching a 70 win team the rest of this season… Brings us full circle to 2004 days, when it was more fun because we were trending up from the bottom..
Well sounds like it is a 5 year contract so there will be time to learn about AA Senior…but if last night was tough…well JC against the kid from Toronto? This will be fun…
