I can't see them paying DD what he'd want.... which I think is part of the reason he was let go.  If Chris believes enough in Avila's work, right or wrong, to give him an extension, then I don't see why he'd then pay DD to come back again.  

Unless he wanted to come back and just assume the CEO/President roles and let AA do the baseball operations.  DD could be the face of the franchise for the league.  But that seems like the other side of what he's doing now in Boston.

DD is a quality GM, who would be a good fit for the right ball club.  I think he could help the Tigers and I would be pleased to have him back.  However, it's a situation where I'd like to see them go in a different direction.  

Clean house all throughout the organization starting with one of the new wave GMs who is focused on modern analysis and committed to player development.

I'm not opposed to finding a young wiz kid to run the team. 

I would have a hard time seeing Al Avila greeting mourners at the viewing of Ernie Harwell like Dave Dombrowski did.   That's shows a difference between the two men.

That's a strange example, I don't know what it has to do with being a good GM.   In addition, if anything Avila would seem more empathetic and less businesslike than Dombrowski.  But then again that's just my impression.

It’s strange.  But, I really appreciated how DD handled that situation.  An awareness of the importance of the Tigers in the culture.  This isn’t some team based in Lakeland that plays its games in a stadium in Detroit.

Given Chris I's apparent first-order dedication to the bottom line, this would be the smart move, but the chances of him doing this are IMO slim.  He seems like a very conventional thinker.

If Chris holds on to the team, he either stays the course with AA style/quality GMs, and continues to suck (thats my guess), or eventually (like his dad) hires a very good conventional style GM (like DD) who knows how to build a winner, including dedicating the payroll needed to do so. 

I think we will have to wait at least 5 years of poor to mediocre play before he has a reckoning like that.
