Will Imminent Brad Ausmus Firing Bring Him To Fenway?

The word on the street is that Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is about to get fired (certainly after the season if not before). New Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski "hand-picked" Ausmus to guide the Tabbys to glory—while their pizza-magnate octogenarian owner still had the strength to celebrate. But, after Dombrowski dealt away a lot of the team's talent (David Price, Yoenis Cespedes, Joakim Soria), the Tigers nose-dived to inglorious cellar-dwellers (even further out than the Red Sox). So, the consensus is that Ausmus was not at fault for the demise of the 2015 Bengals. He is still regarded as smart (a Dartmouth College grad), innovative (comfortable with both 'stats' and 'guts') and a player's manager. Also, Dombrowski reportedly still loves him. If a decision is made to move on from a healthy John Farrell, Ausmus might just be the next skipper of The Carmine Hose. Stay tuned!
