Normally I wouldn't care much, but this should put an end to all the "Don Cooper is jumping ship" rumors.

That's a nice fit!

Look what KW started by hiring an all former Sox coaching staff... everyone seems to be into it now...

Except the Tigers! They tried and failed miserably, so they figured they'd try a different team, the PIRATES! :D:

Does this mean Nardi Contreras isn't coming back?

Actually I think Leyland has old Tigers connections.

"His baseball career began as a catcher in the Tigers minor league system in 1964 and continued as a coach at Montgomery in 1970 and Rocky Mount during the first half of the 1971 season. Leyland received his first managerial experience at Bristol in 1971. He managed for a total of 11 seasons in the Tigers organization before joining the Chicago White Sox as Tony LaRussa's third base coach in 1982. Leyland held that position with the White Sox before being named the 33rd manager in Pirates franchise history on November 20, 1985."

I think Leyland is filling his staff with old Pirates players/coaches. I'm pretty sure I heard it on Detroit radio, not sure though...
