(Leyland pretending to think via The Detroit News)
Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time defending the decisions of Jim Leyland and Dave Dombrowski. I think it’s obvious that they know more about baseball and the Detroit Tigers than any of us goofball fans ever will. That’s why they have their jobs and we have ours. And people LOVE to get on the “Fire Leyland” and/or “Dumbrowski” kicks whenever the team goes on a three game losing streak or whatever. That’s the easy thing to do. So I always try to look at things from their perspective and rationalize their decisions the best I can. Somebody should in this cesspool that is the internet.
But the final Opening Day roster cuts have me mystified this year. I mean, I’ve looked at the decisions made on the bench guys and I just don’t agree with any of them. They went 0 for 3, in my opinion.
