Tigers Win: Jay Johnson

Jay Johnson is a great interview. But he’s ready to stop talking and get to work.

That’s the vibe I got when he wrapped up his home run of a press conference last Monday, impressing the thousands of Tiger fans watching from home as he sold his vision of the program. But Johnson loves to win, and to him that means What’s Important Now.

And what’s important now is getting his roster and staff finalized and preparing for a run at Omaha. Not in two years or three years. Next year. Because he’s ready to win. And he’s ready to work.

Thankfully, we caught him for 25 minutes Monday and asked him about his background in coaching, recruiting and developing Kris Bryant, teaching the mental skills of baseball, and his vision for the Tigers moving forward.
