Topics:

  • Meet Brad Ausmus, managerial flavor of the month!
  • It's far, far to early to make any kind of judgment, good, bad or indifferent, about the hiring if Ausmus.
  • Gene Lamont and Jeff Jones return. Tom Brookens won't.
  • Goodbye Lloyd McClendon.
  • Just because there's rumors the Tigers will trade Max Scherzer doesn't mean it's likely to happen. It's improbable, at best,
  • Is there a payroll crunch?
  • This is Omar Infante's one shot at a huge contract.
  • The few Tigers free agency rumors involve closers, the first of which was about Grant Balfour. Expect the Tigers to be linked to any and every closer on the market.
  • Awards season is here and we don't give a damn.
  • The SB Nation MLB Awards were determined by nerds. Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos Cabrera.
