Leyland Stepping down as Manager

Recommended Posts

Name another Venezuelan with the same credentials. Another possibility, Carlos is on the new staff.

I don't think it will be a rookie manager.

You don't hand over a team of superstars and high expectations to a rookie.

I wonder how they do these kind of announcements on the plane flight home. Is this something they get on the intercom to do? Fasten your seatbelts, tray tables up for take-off, and listen up, Jim's got something he wants to say....

Or do they all try to huddle up over mid-plane after take-off? Seems like it would be kind of crowded and awkward with the seating.

Just curious.

Credit the Tiger locker room with better security than the US Government

Likely wont have a new manager announced until after the World Series. The MLB frowns on making these announcements during the World Series.

Ozzie Guillen will never manage the Tigers so long as Dave Drombowski is their GM.

Ozzie Guillen is a total goob, and not a good manager. No thanks.

Three guys who come to mind are Torey Lovullo, Travis Fryman, and Brad Ausmus. Don't care if they don't have major league experience, get the best man for the job.

Because MLB requires a minority to be interviewed, I do think Baker will be on the list. Panic will ensue and then they'll hire someone else.

Gibson would be intriguing, but that could end up being a disaster like Valentine. But if it worked, that would be so awesome.

Sean Casey.

Hiring a former player with no managerial experience who was working on the MLB Network seemed to work out well for the Cardinals...

I would much, much, much, much rather have McClendon than Dusty Baker.

I don't think he'll be manager, just that he'd be the minority interview

The only good part about have McClendon as the Manager would be that he wouldn't be the hitting coach anymore.

This is absurd. Very few managers can turn a no-doubt playoff team into a non-playoff team.

Unless you think Cleveland, TB, Rangers, Yankees, etc all win significantly more games, thereby pushing a 90-win Tigers team out of the postseason, I just can't see it.

Nothing absurd about it. I see a different team next year with or without JL....and I just have a bad feeling about next year.

Austin Jackson--at least in the regular season--looked better. I've complained about Lloyd too, but he did a great job with Action Jackson.
