Leyland offered up his support to the Inge on the All Star team campaign. If he said it publicly he probably said it to Joe Maddon as well (Maddon only has 8 picks at his discretion and many of those go to insuring every team has a rep).
Lee looks at how lucky the Tigers were to have a winning month despite being outscored. Their last 6 wins have been by 1 or 2 runs, and going farther back, it's 11 of their last 15 wins. It isn't a sustainable pace, but the good news is they picked up wins when not playing particularly well.
