About a month and a half ago, Jim Leyland told Tiger General Manager Dave Dumbrowski that he would be be retiring as Tiger Manager at the end of this season.
Dumbrowski passed the information on to Tiger Owner Mike Illitch - and it stayed between the three of them until Leyland told the team after Saturday night's loss to the Red Sox.
He said that he was proud of the team, but admitted that they let the American League Championship "get away from them". He didn't single out any specific players (saying that's never been his policy) and added that he believed next years team would be a good one and that he would be rooting for them in an as yet unnamed position with the Team.
Thanks and best of luck to the Skipper for the Tigers' last 8 seasons!
