Brad Ausmus - Are his days numbered? in Detroit Tigers Posted July 6, 2017 I keep hearing how the TEAM respects Brad and how smart Brad is......this may be true, but he's not winning anything, hasn't won anything and I feel it's time for him to go. If the team is going to make wholesale changes, Brad must be included in that. I'd rather not have Gardenhire. I see him as an older version of Brad.
