Brad Ausmus FIRED!

Recommended Posts

It has been announced that Brad Ausmus will not return as the Manager of the Los Angeles Angels ..even though he still has 2 years remaining on his contract.

Unlike the 2015 Detroit Tigers ..apparently the Angels realized their 'mistake' after the first year.

It was inevitable.  I watched parts of a few Angel games this year ..and a couple of times Brad Ausmus made some decisions that even their own announcers were questioning whether he had any clue what he was doing.  

Of course .. it may simply be that the Angels just made room to hire Joe Maddon (who was fired by the Cubbies over the weekend ..because the Cubbies failed expectations too.)

Either way .. clearly shows that Ausmus has 'issues'.

Brad Ausmus needs to try to find a managerial job with a team not loaded with outrageous talent, salaries, or egos.

Just take a bunch of youngsters and mold them into a Championship caliber team.

Miami Marlins?  Pittsburg Pirates??  KC Royals??? San Francisco Giants????

The current Tigers roster fits that mold.  At least once they get rid of Miggy.

If he wanted to talk politics, I guarantee you he would have used different names!

Yup. I chose those names for their nondescript awfulness, not their set-everything-on-fire awfulness.

That ban is only absolute depending on your position on the spectrum.  😉

Having been an active member here for over 15 years, I can safely say this is bull****.

You mean to tell me I am the only one who had a Millard Fillmore poster in my room as a child?

Have the Angels even made the playoffs with Trout?  Talk about wasting a star player.

The Tigers are doing the same thing with Jeimer Candelario and Buck Farmer.

Trout has an .083/.267/.333 slash line for his playoff career.

Excellent point.  I think that they missed the playoffs by a little bit in his rookie year didn't they, when they didn't want to start his service clock at the beginning of the year?

I would rather watch Trout play every day than see a AAA team tank.  Winning is the main goal, but I love following individual stars too.  I wish they still had Verlander.  He likely would have provided more entertainment than the players they got in that trade.
