The Tigers signed Brad Ausmus to be their manager and the Dodgers evidently have lame duck Don Mattingly as their manager. Felony stupid is what I think. I would have jumped at the chance to get Brad Ausmus.
This is a part of something that concerns me about the Dodgers. Stan Kasten, Ned Colletti and Don Mattingly are all “old school” guys, and the braintrust assembled by the Dodgers are largely also Old School, in fact they are OLD PERIOD! Pat Corrales, Bob Engle, Tommy Lasorda, Rick Ragazzo, Ralph Avila and Gerry Hunsicker are all over 100 years old… well they are OLD!
I’m not sure “old school” still works. The Cardinals, Braves, Red Sox and A’s are all NEW SCHOOL. I think the Dodgers will rue the day they didn’t go after Brad Ausmus.
