Found October 29, 2012 on NESN.com:
The Tigers certainly did not win the 2012 World Series, but the Giants still allowed a small piece of the American League champions in on their celebration. A champagne bucket with the words "World Series Champions 2012 Detroit Tigers" made its way into the Giants' celebration, as spotted by Yahoo! Sports' Les Carpenter. The bucket, which held two champagne bottles, was handed to Pam Baer, the wife of team president Larry Baer during the postgame celebrations. Carpenter was able to snap off a photo of what will likely be the first of many false "2012 Tigers World Series Champions" souvenirs to hit the Internet. Photo via Yahoo!/Les Carpenter

MLB Rumors: Detroit Tigers Bring Back Jim Leyland For 2013 MLB Season

The Detroit Tigers may have come up short again in the 2012 World Series against the San Francisco Giants, but they are not looking for a scapegoat to assume the blame for the disappointing four game sweep. If they are, it is not manager Jim Leyland, who it was just announced would return to the Tigers for the 2013 MLB season. Next year will be Leyland’s eighth season managing...

Tigers right to bring Leyland back

DETROIT Bringing Jim Leyland back for another season was the right thing to do. Not every Detroit Tigers fan will agree with that, but it's hard to argue with the results.

Since Leyland...
