Jim Leyland as manager to me you're a joke. I don't want to hear well packers he's won 2 pennants and made Detroit relevant. As Chris Farley once said "well loddy freakin da" From not pitching Verlander on 3 days rest in the 2011 postseason to Pulling him in the 9th inning on Opening day. leyland has been inconsistent with his managing for 2 years. And i will NEVER forgive him for not getting thrown out after Galarraga got screwed after a perfect game.
Mr.Ilitch is a loyal man but loyal to a fault. With all he's done to help the team he's hurt them. It was cemented when he reached for Fielder. Here's my problem with Fielder and this is gonna make me sound like a jackass... Why can't he cut his hair? Why didn't Mr.I tell him to cut his hair. IMO Fielder's hair makes him look classless only because he's 1 of the faces of the Tigers.
I'm not a Fielder guy nor a Leyland guy and quite honestly this will get me heat from people... I'd trade Miguel Cabrera. I don't care what he did you NEVER take strike 3 to end the world series. Quite honestly i'm done with Cabrera,Fielder,Leyland. I know Mr.Illitch wants to win 1 before he dies and i don't believe that will happen
In closing you might say packers who would you get to replace Leyland? I'd say to you anyone would be an improvement. Winning 2 pennants does nothing for me. that team underachieved last year and was a dead-behind team for the final week and a half. Torii Hunter may be great but until you get rid of Leyland it doesn't matter.
