World Series woes
Jim Leyland might want to spend a couple of days over spring training working on one thing with the Detroit Tigers - fielding. The Tigers had 8 errors in the World Series with the pitchers committing 5 of them.
The Tigers were too good for their own good. After sweeping past Oakland, the week-long hiatus was the worst thing for them. Sure, the pitching staff got their rest, but the bats went limp. The only Tiger swinging a big stick was Sean Casey. His home runs and hits should have been enough for the Tigers to be heading back to Detroit. Instead they watched St. Louis celebrate.
Hindsight is 20-20, but there's going to be a lot of talk in Detroit on why Leyland didn't start Kenny Rogers. Rogers was the only Tiger starter getting Cardinals out, even without pine tar, er, I mean dirt on his hand.
