13 games in Tigers learn Tram's gone!

It took 13 games for it to happen, Leyland went off on the Tigers after a poorly played game and bad results during their homestand.

AL Notes: After another loss, Leyland explodes


DETROIT -- The Tigers' loss to the Indians was so bad that Detroit manager Jim Leyland's expletive-filled tirade could be heard outside the clubhouse door.

"We stunk," Leyland said Monday while speaking to reporters after the 10-2 loss, a terse session that ended with him abruptly storming out of his office. "The whole ball of wax was lackluster. It's been going on here before."

In Leyland's first year back in the dugout after seven away, he is trying to turn around a franchise without a winning record since 1993 or a postseason appearance in 19 years.

"He wants our expectations to be greater than maybe they've been," Nate Robertson said after giving up seven runs in 2 1/3 innings.

The Tigers went 2-5 on their homestand after winning five of their first six games.

I think he is upset, he hasn't been exposed to Tiger baseball, and is laying down the gauntlet for this team. These guys have to be thinking "crap were 7-6 and getting yelled at" It should be interesting to see how they respond on thier impending road trip.[/url]
