I'm still gonna go all conspiracy theory here: the Tigers are a playoff ready team and the favorites to win the division for likely the next 2 years...and the best they can do is Brad Ausmus?

Strictly not no experience, he managed Team Israel in the WBC qualifiers.

Insert WBC joke here.

So what is the conspiracy?

The league is colluding to allow Boston/New York an easier path to the Series? That's all I could come up with.

Probably not. Bloggers generally don't have access to sources could be seriously trusted or the training and experience to know and develop them if they were to stumble on to such access.

As for Ausmus, I think it's interesting that the Tigers would go Leyland to a manager with no experience. I have long believed that managerial experience was overrated. I'm certainly not surprised the Tigers didn't go after Dusty Baker.

Waiting for the "going cheap" posters here to beat up Illich. Got to say I'm as surprised as I've ever been. The guy must be a dynamite interview. Plus they must be figuring that the opposite choice, Leyland, couldn't get them to Point C.

Bloggers are the only journalists who have their fingers firmly on the pulse of what is going on. This is what we have been told.

The conspiracy, to respond to an earlier post, is to keep the Cubs job open for when Girardi comes to his senses and walks out on the Yankees for the Cubs. Who wouldn't do that?

Patently false. Working on the internet does not preclude one from both having a degree in journalism or networking legitimate connections.

Working on the Internet also does not require any responsibility.

Once again, patently false. This is a lie tactic used by the old guard to undermine the internet as a news source.

I'm happy not to have this conversation, but if you're going to continue to be-smudge internet journalists on the premise that they're somehow inferior because their job is on the internet, I'm going to call out your lies every time.

Ausmus is well regarded as a managerial candidate, despite his lack of experience. I'm surprised the Astros didn't give him a shot last offseason.

I don't know how happy you are. The last time you started this, you insulted me and before I could respond shut down the thread forbidden political statements that had no contact with the reality I was discussing.

At this point, I really don't care if you want to call me a liar because I know how to consider a source.

You don't think your point of view is insulting to people who work on the internet?

Let me tell you, I have lots of friends who are journalists. Most work on the internet now, and almost all of them have blogs. The one that still works in print for a Chicago newspaper is EMBARRASSED that it's the only work he can find. I know that in your time things were different, but today working in print is not something to aspire to. Print is dying, and it's not only because the internet exists. It's because of who controls the print.
