Dave Dombrowski’s firing sorta sounded like a mob hit

Maybe he’s just being dramatic, but Dave Dombrwoski’s firing sure sounded like a mob hit:

This is like Al Pacino’s last scene in Donnie Brasco. “Don’t wait up for me tonight, I’m gonna be late. And if Al Avila calls, tell him that . . . if it had to be anyone, I’m glad it was him.”

In all seriousness, though: did the Tigers tell Al Avila that Dombrowski was gone before they told Dombrowski? If so, eh, bad form.
