The days of babysitting are over

Most people expected the Tigers to challenge for the AL pennant. But as the season comes to a close, Detroit's in last place, losers of eight of their last 10 games.

Veteran manager Jim Leyland, while taking the blame, has already begun setting the tone for next season, starting with the offseason:

"With the year we've had, I stunk. We're under fire because of the year we've had and that's totally understandable. Everybody better step it up. They better do what they need to do this winter. The days of baby sitting and milking along are over."
