Here is a knock for the future manager. The Tigers are looking to trade Scherzer.
2015 Attendance 2-1 (4/6, 4/7,4/24)
2014 Attendance 1-3 (3/31, 4/12, 8/14)
2013 Attendance: 6-0 (4/3, 4/16, 4/17, 8/3, 8/21, 9/7)
I think the Tigers would have won it all if their bullpen wasn't awful. It was just something they couldn't overcome in the postseason.

Leyland said he will be staying in the organization in another capacity. Sounds like he just wants out of managing. Can't blame him. Thankless job.
He doesn't want to be on the road for months of the year or at the ballpark for 12+ hours a day. Can't blame him for that.

The fans were booing Prince Fielder so hard in game 5. I was ashamed to be in the stadium. They were ruthless. My co workers were all whining about Fielder too. Tough crowd.

I DOUBT this would happen, but if there is one team Tony LaRussa should come out of retirement to manage, it would be the Tigers.
Best rotation in all of baseball and a pretty potent lineup. The only question mark on the team whatsoever is the bullpen.
To me it would be like Phil Jackson coming out of retirement to coach the Lakers with Shaq and a young Kobe Bryant. The Tigers need someone who can get them over the hump, LaRussa can do it.
Not saying it will happen, but it's a lot more plausible than the Reds (not factoring in Castelllini).
Agree, the Tigers gig is perfect for an old timer with a 2-3 year time horizon looking to grab a ring before heading into the sunset (again).
