It’s been almost a week since my last post and I’m just now emerging from my post-World Series malaise. How is it possible that the Tigers were in the World Series but a week ago and now it seems like they haven’t played in weeks?
Probably because they lost.
Good news, though, this week (today in fact) that Tigers President, CEO and GM Dave Dombrowski has signed an extension through the 2011 season. This is huge. I’ve always been a big fan of Dombrowski (partially because of his roots at Western Michigan) but because the guy always has a plan and has won everywhere. How can you argue.
With this move, and the extensions of key front-office honchos John Westhoff, David Chadd, Al Avila, Scott Reid, means the Tigers will have the continuity they’ve lacked since the Jim Campbell/Bill Lajoie (another WMU alum) days.
