Contract details emerge for Ron Gardenhire

Contract details emerge for Ron Gardenhire

The Detroit Tigers intend to hire Ron Gardenhire as their next manager.

The Tigers had a lengthy list of early names as the process to replace Ausmus began in late September.

He's no stranger to rebuilding; the Twins lost at least 92 games in each of his final four years at the helm.

NOAA releases 2017-18 winter outlook for the United States
Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA's Climate Prediction Center , said it would be surprising if this winter is as warm. Though NOAA does expect this winter to be warm, they do not anticipate it to be as extreme as recent years.


Gardenhire, 59, was one of 10 candidates narrowed down from an original pool of 50, the website reported.

Ausmus, 48, was hired as Detroit's 37th manager in team history on November 3, 2013, to replace the retiring Jim Leyland.

The Tigers apparently like to compound their mistakes.

Packers send Aaron Rodgers to injured reserve
Packers coach Mike McCarthy indicated that was one of the discussion points prior to the decision being announced. The Packers have yet to place Rodgers on injured reserve, holding out hope he can come back late in the season.


The Detroit Tigers have decided on their new manager, and here's a hint - it's someone familiar with the American League Central. He won the American League manager of the year award in 2010 and was runner-up five other times. He previously managed the Twins for 13 years, going 1068-1039 between 2002-14. The Tigers went 64-98 this season, finishing tied for the worst record in the majors. Gardenhire was seen as a seasoned, battle-tested option in this regard.

If the Tigers part ways with second baseman Ian Kinsler, they will be a club devoid of leadership from anyone who plays on a daily basis.

Ron Gardenhire interviewed with the Red Sox on Wednesday, but he's reportedly taking the managerial job in Detroit.

Gardenhire won't have an easy task ahead of him if he's to lead the Tigers to the postseason anytime soon. Just not the right one.
