Winning is the Cure for Everything

For the next manager, it is really simple: Just win!

Knowing full well that the manager is the one that makes dinner, but can only do so much with the groceries purchased by the general manager, that means the ball is in Al Avila’s court.

If Tigers’ ownership is committed to continue the high level of spending as they have stated, Avila will have plenty of money to lure free agents and put this club in a position back into contention for 2016 and beyond.

That manager must make the magic happen. No more managing by the guidebook, no more letting problems fester, no more fright at challenging players.

A good manager can make an average team win and good teams go deep into October. But in the end–after all the money is spent, after all the managing moves have been made–it falls on the players to win games.

But putting them in the right position to win on and off the field goes a long way to victory.
