Yeah, no kidding. The Tigers are not stupid. There's no way they would hire a megalomaniac like Ozzie. Illitch has too much invested in that team to let Ozzie drive it into the ground.

Anyway, surely the Tigers have some former player/fan favorite with little or no coaching experience available to be their next manager.

White Sox Baseball
# of teams with a longer playoff drought = 3:
San Diego (2006), Miami (2003), Seattle (2001)

# of teams with fewer playoff appearances since 1995 = 5:
Kansas City* (2), Toronto** (1), Miami (2), Washington (2), Milwaukee (2)

# of Sox seasons in the this decade that were arguably dismal failures = 4:
2011, 2013, 2014, 2015

Conclusion: Blame Sox fans for not showing up to enough games

* back to back AL Champs, WS Champs
** advanced to ALCS this year
