DETROIT -- Jim Leyland didn't make any promises Sunday night, but he sounds like a man who is planning to keep his job.
Speaking to local writers after his Tigers were swept in the World Series, Leyland acknowledged that he still wants to manage.
"I like to manage, and contrary to what some people think, I think I'm pretty good at it," he said. "A lot of people might not agree with that, and I'm not the best but I'm not the worst."
Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said during the playoffs that Leyland, whose contract expired with the season, would be welcome back. Leyland made it clear Sunday that he has no interest in any other job.
"I can give you this tonight -- I will not be managing anybody else but the Detroit Tigers next year, unless it is the Mount Lebanon Tigers in Pittsburgh," he said. "I'm not looking in any way, shape or form to go anyplace else. This is my last stop."
As far back as when they clinched the American League Central, Leyland has been very emotion...
