Tigers extend Leyland

The Detroit Tigers made it official today and announced a one year contract extension that will keep Jim Leyland managing the club through the 2009 season. No real surprise here.

  1. That’s great!! Those one year deals will keep him on his toes.
    I have a question though: Do the Tigers pay any attention to what people say on these blogs????

  3. I know this website has been more critical of Leyland than usual for the Tigers Nation, but that still has to be good news. Well done Jim and Dave.

  4. Well, he asked for more money and he got it. Some folks are very critical of Leyland but I’m glad he’s back for at least another year or two.

  5. Hey. Did I fall asleep or did those morons at Fox preempt the end of last nights Padres-Rockies playoff game?

  6. I’m not happy at all with the deal . What we need now is a player who can lead this team thru the tough times. We didn’t make the playoffs and he gets a raise. Yeh, that’s a good investment.

  7. Hey anyone notice that TWO former Tigers first basemen got named comeback player of the year? I’d laugh if I wasn’t crying so har.

  8. Mets apologize to fans, class act. Tigers apologize to fans by bringing back Leyland.

  10. You’re right ron. God I miss Tram. At least then I could get good seats to a game.

  11. Yeah ron, totally. I hear Van Slyke wants to manage, we should have signed him.

  12. Hey this guy thought that releasing Pena was a mistake. He should start a blog!

  13. From Beck’s blog: Unless something unforeseen comes out of Sheffield’s talk with the doctor later this week, Dombrowski expects him to be fine heading into next season.
