"In the end (of the 2017 Detroit Tigers regular season), it was a perfect storm of a bloated payroll, bad pitching and big-time regressions from their most important players. Said second baseman Ian Kinsler Alex ) Avila finally ripped the Band-Aid off a month ago and traded Justin Verlander . In the months that follow, Kinsler likely will find a new home in favor of more prospects whom the Tigers hope will make up the core of their next great team." - Staff Writer Anthony French in The Detroit Free Press (10/01/2017, Tigers' 'sad' 2017 season ends; new manager, roster remake on horizon , Source )
