Dave Littlefield is now squarely in my cross-hairs, the Vice President of Player Development. It's hilarious that the Tigers have a job title like that in their organization. Based on his record of developing players, wouldn't he just do the right thing and resign? Name a player that the Tigers have developed since Littlefield has been on the payroll. Name one. If I bought the team today, he'd be gone today. Avila might be gone next week, but Littlefield would be gone today. Along with that other guy, who is so important to the team's success that his name escapes me for the moment, who has been running the draft for all these years. Both of them, gone, day 1.
I want someone to buy the Tigers who makes it plain that planning for 5 years of abject failure will not be tolerated, and that a winning team is never more than 2 years away. I'm not even sure what year we're on anymore.
