Jim Leyland vs. NL Rules

Jim Leyland knows how to double switch. He has more wins than any active manager, and he earned more than 60 percent of them while working for National League franchises (Pirates, Marlins, Rockies). He’s already made one weighty decision, committing to (usual DH) Delmon Young in left field for Game 1. With a five-day layoff, the Tigers have had ample time to get their pitchers used to bunting again. But if recent history is any guide, it won’t be easy for the Tigers to win in San Francisco. AL teams are 3-9 in NL ballparks over the last four World Series. - Jon Paul Morosi (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel)
