Jim Leyland leaves the Tigers

Jim Leyland managed the Detroit Tigers to two World Series appearances in eight years, but now they'll have to move forward without him. Leyland, who won a World Series as manager of the Marlins, reportedly will step down today, two days after Detroit was eliminated in the ALCS. The team is still loaded, but the core group hasn't been able to get over the hump yet. Losing Leyland might make things that much more difficult.
