It's October and for baseball fans that means two things: playoffs and firings.

And while the Detroit Tigers will be nowhere near the playoffs this season (or for the foreseeable future), the firings could have some impact with some Tigers fans of a certain age.

Don't worry, Ron Gardenhire is safe, and most of his coaching staff is returning for the 2020 season.

But the top job wasn't so kind to Brad Ausmus. The former Tigers All-Star catcher who spent four underwhelming seasons as the Detroit manager was hired to lead the Angels for the 2019 season.
