mlb- Ilitch on the Tigers

Mike Ilitch gave his annual state of the Tigers press conference in Lakeland today,
from the detnews, "We're going to keep spending until we win."
Tigers' owner Mike Ilitch, who spoke those words on Monday at Marchant Stadium, can't put his plan for the future in simpler or clearer terms.
If the Tigers don't have what it takes this year, they'll do what they have to do for next year. And he's not selling.
"It's going to stay in our family just like the Red Wings," he said about the Tigers' franchise, which he bought in 1992 and finally is showing some promise after 11 years of finishing under .500.
