Jim Leyland got his contract extended for an extra year and he’s locked in as the Tigers manager through 2009. Leyland’s has a very respectable 183-141 record since joining the Tigers.
Two former Tigers won both the NL and AL comeback player of the year. Carlos Pena won the AL comeback player of the year after belting 46 homers while Dmitri Young his a career high .320. Congrats to both on turning their careers around.
