Reports: Tigers to fire manager Brad Ausmus after season
The 2015 season has been up and down from the Detroit Tigers, and it seems as if ownership isn't happy with the product on the field.
The Detroit Free Press and WDIV-TV in Detroit both reported Thursday night, citing sources, that owner Mike Ilitch will dismiss Ausmus after the Oct. 4 season finale against the Chicago White Sox.
Good or bad move?
Right now the Tigers sit at 64-76. Many people said the Tigers had the talent to win the division, but was that true?
If you look at the season in whole, Ausmus coached the majority of the year without a boatload of his key players, and the ones who played had down years. Justin Verlander began the season on the disabled list with a triceps injury. Slugger Miguel Cabrera was sidelined for five weeks with a calf injury in July. Victor Martinez had a DL stint with knee inflammation in May.
To make matters worst, the team dealt away their ace in David Price and a key bat in Cespedes to the Mets. Oh and what about the loss of top 10 pitcher in Max Scherzer in the off-season?
I think this guy deserves a pass and a couple better pieces before he get pulled, @jeff4122@mchlyang what do you think?
