Detroit is reportedly finalizing a deal to hire AJ Hinch as their manager. He, of course, was the manager of the 2017 WS champion Houston Astros. He was also suspended for the 2020 season by MLB, and subsequently fired by the Astros, for failing to stop the Astros players’ cheating scheme in 2017. He was up front about his shortcomings relating to the scandal, and was considered likely to get another chance somewhere eventually. It appears eventually is now.

Really inspired choice here if it happens. Hire a guy who didn’t have the balls to stand up to his bench coach and DH to shut down their cheating scheme, can’t wait to see how Miguel Cabrera walks all over him.
Forget it, Jake. it’s Detroit.
