Leyland manages to get Raburn going

As a manager, it seems Jim Leyland is a pretty good psychologist. A big part of Leyland's job is pumping up his players, keeping their confidence high so they can do the things in games they are capable of doing. That's part of the reason Leyland keeps writing slumping Ryan Raburn's name in the lineup, to show trust that eventually his early season slump will be over...

Miguel Cabrera wasn't happy with something earlier in the Tigers' game against the Minnesota Twins tonight (the Tigers are currently down 8-7 in the 6th inning) and apparently that gum bucket was giving him the evil eye. Needless to say, the bucket got what it deserved. Later on, Cabrera did even more damage to a pitch from Jeff Gray to give the Tigers a 7-6 lead (at the...

Weren’t they expected to do more? Shouldn’t they have at least a five game lead at this point? At the beginning of [...]

A Lost Art

There used to be a time when a starting pitcher with over a 5.00 era would get released or sent down to the minors.  In looking back at all those hours spent studying the backs of baseball cards and memorizing players' stats, I don't recall seeing many pitchers with such astronomical era's still pitching at the major league level.
