Brad Ausmus is out as the manager of Detroit’s baseball club, and the only mild surprises about that announcement are that the Tigers didn’t wait until the end of the season to officially make the move, and that Ausmus will finish out the season as the skipper.

About 15 seconds after digesting that news, baseball fans across the country moved on to the next question: Who will manage Detroit’s baseball club next season?

One big thing to keep in mind: This is not a “win-now” situation. The Tigers have just begun what could be a relatively long and frustrating rebuilding process. That’s not the type of job every potential manager would relish.
