Tigers | Former manager doesn't believe Trammell firing was bittersweet

The Associated Press reports former Detroit Tigers manager George "Sparky" Anderson addressed the media before Game 2 of the World Series on a variety of topics, one of which was the decision to fire former manager Alan Trammell after the 2005 season. Trammell was the shortstop on the team that won the 1984 World Series for Anderson. "When you sign a contract, I think you sign to be fired," Anderson said. "I certainly got it, Bobby Cox got it and Tony got it. Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa, if we had to vote today, you would have to vote one of the two the greatest managers of all times. You're not going to give Connie Mack that because he used to leave after the third or fourth inning if things were bad there. The elevator girl was waiting for him."
