It won't be McClendon.  You can put it on the front page, back page, middle pages, whatever.  Ain't gonna happen.

Thank goodness.

Watch LaRussa bring back SPs that throw 130 pitches and the hit & run and bunts and old timey baseball stuff.

That would be great. How he relates to today’s players will be interesting. He used to be a no bull**** guy.

I haven't followed baseball this year, but I wonder how this will go over with the team and attracting free agents? Weren't the Astros hated this year?

The free agents will follow the money.

They are making a lot of the connections Hinch has with some of the existing staff. I'll grant it seems more likely that it did 2 weeks ago but I will still be surprised if it's Hinch.

I think people get too worked up about managers, but most of the smart people like Hinch, so I will be happy with Hinch.

Just reading that Verlander probably isn’t expected to throw competitively until spring of 2022. Hiring Hinch would be solid plus toward Verlander considering a return to Detroit in 2022 if he can prove he’s recovered from the TJ. 

I’m needing a presser announcing the hire now.

hinch!

nice.  i like it.

He is a cheat.  You want a team that is fun to root for.  Hinch isn’t that.  Bummer of a hire, if true.

Couldn't agree more.  I hate this hire.  I wouldn't do that to my brand if I owned the team.  Either he is a cheat, or he isn't but he's so weak that he couldn't prevent it.  The manager has 2 jobs - run the pitching staff, and control the clubhouse.  It seems like we already know that he can't control the clubhouse.  And what is the value of a manager anyway, is it plus or minus 4 wins?  He isn't worth the aggravation.

Wonder who Hinch’s coaches will be?  Might need to build a new staff, since many of his guys are still in Houston.

The tigers are beginning the upswing of the rebuild.  This should be a time to enjoy the progress.  Hard to do that with hinch at the helm.

I’m also surprised by the verlander mentions above in regards to coming back to Detroit.  JV spent years bashing every steroid user, than goes to a team who systematically cheats the game and doesn’t say **** because they were winning.  Showed he was grandstanding, without principle.
