DETROIT (AP) -- Dave Dombrowski is determined to rebuild the Detroit Tigers, who haven't had a winning season since 1993.
And if he fails, he'll have no one to blame but himself.
On Monday, the club president fired manager Phil Garner and general manager Randy Smith -- just six games into the season.
Dombrowski said he had been thinking about firing them for a few days. He felt strongly about doing so Sunday night after the Tigers, baseball's lone winless team, lost their sixth game.
So, he called club owner Mike Ilitch to talk about it Monday morning, hours before Detroit's game against the Chicago White Sox was rained out.
