Tram Will Be Around for a While
Here is the official word on Alan Trammell as it stands today. He will not be fired during the season, no matter what happens. The Tigers want him to see it through. Also chances are Trammell will start the 2006 season as Tigers manager. That is not etched in stone, but the team is leaning toward bringing him back. There is a feeling he did not get to work with all of his players. The organization wants to make a determination after he does that next season along with a couple more pieces. Those pieces are expected to be a left-handed power bat and another starting pitcher. If he gets his pieces and the Tigers start slowly, then we could see a quick hook.
