Ron Gardenhire had decided to retire from baseball which means the Detroit Tigers will have a new manager for the 2021 season.
On Friday, Tigers’ GM Al Avila spoke to reporters and he confirmed two controversial candidates for the team’s managerial opening.
Those two candidates are AJ Hinch and Alex Cora, who were both parts of the Houston Astros cheating scandal in which they stole signs and then relayed them by banging on garbage cans.
Nation, would you like to see Hinch or Cora leading the Tigers into the future?
Seems like the Tigers will be open to interviewing AJ Hinch and Alex Cora. Al Avila even confirmed they're both on the team's list of candidates.
