Who Stays and Who Goes After Detroit Tigers' Embarrassing World Series Sweep?

Has Jim Leyland managed his last game in Detroit?

The Detroit Tigers were swept in the World Series by the San Francisco Giants, scoring only six runs and hitting just .159 with a .489 OPS in the process.

In times like these, perhaps the only thing for Tigers fans to do is climb to the top of the nearest hill and shout "Begin the purge!" for all the world to hear.

It's either that, or cooler heads can prevail and Tigers fans can realize that their team will probably be heard from again. The Tigers blew an opportunity, to be sure, but it's not like they blew an opportunity that won't be coming around again.

The Tigers are set up pretty well to find themselves back in the World Series in the near future. There's bound to be some turnover this offseason, but there's no need for GM Dave Dombrowski and the club's ownership to blow up what they have. The majority of players and coaches from this year's AL champion club will be returning.

For what they're worth, here are my best guesses for who stays and who goes this winter in Detroit.
