    I went to spring training when Tram was the manager and Gibby a coach and remember seeing them pulling away after the game in a mini van, so I (being a drunk 21 year old) jumped in front of the van and waved. They thought it was hilarious.

    Here is a knock for the future manager. The Tigers are looking to trade Scherzer.

    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.

    Running and fielding would have been a nice part of the game to be average in for them too.

    ...not to mention Cabrera and Fielder actually hitting during the ALCS

    Yeah, that's got to be some post-game spread.

    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.

    Another bunch of ungrateful and unappreciative fans like the Nationals message board that apparently just doesn't like to win.

    Leyland cost them that series. When Ortiz is up with the bases juiced, you bring in a lefty. Period.

    They had a chance to go home up 2-0 winning the first 2 in boston. No idea why Ortiz did not face a lefty...any lefty..

    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).
