Do you think any free agents would refuse to play for Hinch?

Not if the Tigers make the highest offer for their services.

I doubt that'll be a problem

Did any coaches bench a pitcher for using sandpaper on a ball? How about the george brett bat scandal? How long did his manager know and was he penalized for it? Should he have resigned or never managed again? Baseball has a long history of cheating. Who knows where the line is? What cheating is acceptable and which is not? Mcguires managers know about his supplements and should have stopped it? Should that manager been fired? How about bonds?

Ironically, he was just hired by the White Sox.

Walk away.  Or call out your bosses behind the scenes.  It’s not like their was nothing he could have done. He choose to do the least.  Smashing a monitor passive aggressive. Call it out directly.

What does walk away mean? Quit his job? How do you know he didn't say anything to his bosses behind the scenes?

Yes.  Quit. 

I don’t know that he didn’t call out his bosses. But here I give him the benefit of the doubt.  If he DID call them out, and then after that, the cheating persisted and he still didn’t walk away then that’s a pretty unredeemable position.  The whole thing just sucks.

Sure does suck. And it's in the past. And no indication of future performance. 

You're being ridiculous. And you'll forget all about it after a few wins.

What if they lose?  

Personally, he seems like a good baseball hire because he is supposedly good using data and developing players, but I think it's fair to criticize him for what happened his last year with the Astros.  Not everyone has to love the hire.

They won 59 games before he got there,  his first year they won 86, they won 110 games his last year,  the year after he left they pro-rated out to under 80.  Yes they lost some players abs obviously Im not crediting him with everything but the fact is he got results. That's what matters to me most.

Speaking of Gardy, weird how there hasn’t been any news of his condition since leaving. All of a sudden he’s throwing in the towel because he was having, what sounded like, fairly serious issues. It’s like as soon as he left, he no longer existed!

Has anyone heard anything? Hope he’s doing well. He had a tough road to hoe with this bunch but gave it his best.

When Jhonny Peralta was caught doing PEDs, I seem to recall people OK with his return to the team in time for the playoffs.

You are correct. Good point.

Those win totals had a lot more to do with players than the managers.  Managers, even good ones, don't win without talented players.   

Hopefully, Hinch can speed up the development a little, but I am expecting to see some more losing before things turn for the better.

I think it's just your garden variety internet outrage. A bunch of holier than thous who have no idea what they would have done in that situation, or what the full situation even was. 

He seems like a good guy by all indications and probably a good manager. I'm more concerned with the coaching staff he puts together and if we're lucky enough to lure a decent player simply because they want to play for him. 

I just don't care what happened in Houston. That's fine if others do.

No doubt. My big takeaway here is it is a move that looks good in terms of the org trying to become more progressive. Or they just took the lazy "big name" pick. Not sure how to look at it but on the surface I'm encouraged.

So, he failed.  That doesn't mean he's a bad manager (he's supposed to be a very good one in many respects), but he didn't get a good result in that case.  

Right. I go back the Francona - if he were available would you disqualify him because he didn't handle the situation with Beckett, Lester and Lackey? Of course not, as he proved in Cleveland that was not the measure of his ability as a manger. 

I could certainly see disqualifying Hinch if you believed he condoned or contributed to the cheating in Houston, but the premise here today seems to be that he didn't. I'm not in any position to make a judgment about that, I have to trust Avila is.

I hope AJ Hinch is wide enough to hire a new coaching staff that does not include any of his Houston cronies. I’m not happy with the hiring of Hinch, however I will never abandon my beloved Detroit Tigers. With AJ Hinch now in Detroit, would JV be open minded about returning to Detroit after his Tommy John surgery? For me, it’s always been weird seeing JV in the Astros uniform.

If JV comes back, it'll be more due to his connection with the Tigers rather than Hinch. It seems like a pretty good possibility on a 1 or 2 year deal.

No because he didn't rat out the players publicly after he found out they were cheating.
