At what point if things start slow do we start talking about the manger. I know that Molitor is the owners mandate at manger. At what point do you pull the plug. Am haunted by memories of hometown favorite Alan Trammel as manger of the Tigers in the 2003 when his first team lost 117 games (Tiger fans booed as that team swept the twins in the last three games to avoid the worst losing season in baseball). He hung around for two more years with 90 and 91 losses. Aside from the Hunter-led bounce in 2015 Molitor's leadership has not generated a whole lot of success. How long does a love affair with a local boy need to last?
