As a fan that's what has me worried. The Ilitch organization has been very open about how everything else is a family business. Yet it's made very clear that the Tigers are Mike's and MIke's alone. He doesn't run the team to make money he runs it to win. He has no investors to satisfy and no profit margin to reach.
