This guy retired 11 years ago. Why does he still haunt our newspaper?

It's almost like Merchantgander is posting over there again.
Ron Gardenhire is available. That's who I would target.
Al Avila learned it a long time ago. He learned it from Jim Leyland.
“He said, ‘Whenever you make a decision to change a manager, do it right then and there and don’t wait,’” Avila said. “So whenever you make a decision, period, take action.”
And the Detroit Tigers’ first-year general manager took action this afternoon at Comerica Park, putting his first footprint on the organization by announcing that manager Brad Ausmus will return next season.
“After almost two months of watching this team play, evaluating our staff, manager and a lot of discussion with my staff, I’ve concluded that Brad Ausmus should be our manager going into 2016,” Avila said.
The conclusion came after watching Ausmus first-hand over the past two years and seeing the way he handled the past two months of the subpar season, which has seen the Tigers sink to the bottom of the American League Central.
“I don’t really see it as a priority,” Al Avila said. “Right now, (James) McCann is our starting catcher and (Bryan) Holaday is coming back, but is out of options. Basically, Holaday has to be our backup catcher or he’s out of options.”
