Staff writers Brandon Day and Ashley MacLennan return to look at the week in Tigers’ baseball. We peruse the recent Tigers acquisitions of Leonys Martin and Derek Norris, for better and for worse. We bid farewell to Bruce Rondon, and praise Nick Castellanos on most fronts beyond his sartorial flair and meager ability at third base.
We also look ahead—vaguely, since the Tigers won’t be doing exciting stuff— to the Winter Meetings with a state of the Tigers conversation about the front office, ownership, and the hiring of Ron Gardenhire as manager.
Editor’s note: This episode was actually recorded on Tuesday, December 5, but there were technical issues with the recording that needed work.
