So long Tram, still one of my favorites of all time

You'll always be a Detroit Tiger and one of the best shortstops in MLB history. But sometimes, a change has to be made. Unfortunately, you are that change right now in Detroit.

The Detroit News has a nice rundown of possible candidates. I think Jim Leyland is the obvious frontrunner for a couple reasons.

1) He and Dombrowski go back a ways and have a good relationship from their time in Florida.
2) He's a former Tiger minor leaguer (and former Tiger minor league manager) and he grew up just down I-75 outside of Toledo.
3) He's got a lot of respect around the league as one of the best around. He's also got that shiny WS ring as a manager to prove to the players he know's what he's talking about.
