Final grade: C-

Sure, Rome wasn't built in a day. Scott Harris wasn't going to turn the Tigers around overnight. But the lack of effort is what really frustrates us.

I started a new day job a few months back. I sure wish I could get a free pass my first 90 days, let alone my first year.

A C- feels just about right, as you can flunk your way through a test and still pull a passing grade. That's essentially what Harris has done his first year in office.

This is a massive offseason for Scott Harris and the Detroit Tigers. He needs to prove himself. We need to see substantial changes to this team. The American League Central is ripe for the taking. The Twins are going to win this division this season with a win total in the mid 80s. There is a huge opportunity here.

Another offseason like last year, and we'll start to get into some bad, bad territory.
