Talking baseball while the Bulls keep playing tough defense: 1. One thing about guys who put together baseball teams for a living: They are open-minded in their approach to evaluating talent. They strip away reputations and examine contributions. They...

Does Jim Leyland have a flair for the dramatic? We're going to find out when he sets the Tigers' pitching rotation for next weekend's series against the White Sox. If he prioritizes the head-to-head meeting with the first-place Sox, we will get one of...
NEW YORK — Six years. Six long years. Six long, long years. That's how long Dave Dombrowski and Jim Leyland have been on the mission that drives them — to bring home a World Series title for Mike Ilitch, the 83-year-old owner who has kept...
