    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (on the Atlanta Braves)
        Detroit Manager Jim Leyland: They're really aggressive. That's the most aggressive team I've seen. Sometimes that bites you, but most of the time, they're going to score runs, because they hit two- and three-run homers.

      • (on Miguel Cabrera)
        Detroit Manager Jim Leyland: He's the best I've ever seen, opposite-field power. A lot guys just don't like to swing 3-0. I think they get caught where they don't want to swing at a bad pitch. I think they get leery of it. ... I've given the green light more in Detroit than any time I've ever managed in my life, but most guys don't swing.

      • (on hitting his home run on a 3-0 count)
        Miguel Cabrera: You've got to make sure 'Skip' (Jim Leyland) gives you the sign to swing. That's when you decide to swing or not swing. That doesn't mean you're going to swing 3-0. You've got to make sure you get a good pitch to hit.
