    LAKE BUENA VISTA — I’ve done a good job so far today not cheering in the press box. Kris Medlen struck a dude out looking. Evan Gattis just thew out a would-be base stealer. Both of those things are usually worth at least a fist-pump from me when watching a game but I’ve been totally…

    Ryan Doumit

    I’m not a big fan of the Ryan Doumit trade, but at least it’s good for the yuks: Wren said he viewed Doumit as the best player available to fill his bench need because “he’s almost two players in one.” — Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) December 18, 2013   True! He is almost two players. Almost…

    Groundhog Day

    Pirates 1, Tigers 0: Jim Leyland was in the Virgin Islands once. He met a girl. they ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, they made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t he get that day over, and over, and over? Or, well, at least two out of three days. It’d…

    Jean Segura

    Jean Segura tied a Brewers record Tuesday by going 6-for-7 in a 14-inning loss to the Twins.  All of Segura’s hits were singles. The last was a liner to right that would have been caught by a better defender than Ryan Doumit, but it was still hit pretty sharply. It made him the first player…

  23. Tigers lose because Jim Leyland’s closer-by-committee really wasn’t

    Apr 3, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Jim Leyland

    Jim Leyland said all of the right things this spring after Bruce Rondon failed to step up and win the Tigers’ closing gig. He didn’t seem the least bit disturbed to go with a closer-by-committee situation while waiting for things to shake out. And then he went and seemingly abandoned the idea in the second…
