SI writer: Tigers' Jim Leyland is AL manager of the half-year

POSTED BY KIRKLAND CRAWFORD • FREE PRESS SPORTS WRITER • July 7, 2009

Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci has released his midseason awards for baseball and he highlights the Tigers in several categories.

Verducci named Jim Leyland the American League manager of the year for the first half of the season.

Leyland has remade the Tigers on the fly into a pitching and defense club with daily lineup uncertainties.

Verducci also had pitcher Rick Porcello second in his rookie of the year race. As for his "AL Best Plan A," he nominated Detroit.

They fast-tracked Porcello, traded for Edwin Jackson, moved Brandon Inge to third, acquired Gerald Laird and Adam Everett and paid Gary Sheffield to go away, a symbolic move proving the organization knew the team had grown too old and unathletic. The emphasis on pitching and defense has been spot on.

I wonder if ESPN the Magazine feels the Same Way


They should after they picked the Tigers to finish last place
