Detroit Tigers' Jim Leyland drops in MLB Network manager rankings despite World Series run

No restrictions on Tigers' Victor Martinez
Detroit Free Press, John Lowe
I don't know, I'm kind of hoping he was restricted from using a Pitbull song as his walk-up music this year.

Seeing an actual lineup is too exciting for words. I can't believe the first Spring Training game is this afternoon!
For their own individual reasons, each player is no doubt looking forward to having the exhibition games begin. But it would be understandable if Martinez's anticipation is the highest, after missing all of last season.
Furthermore, I would like to make the correlation between him, and top 100 prospect, Avisail Garcia, as you will now witness in the text below.
Which Tiger Manager is Brandon Inge Throwing Under the Bus?
I have to say this is an exceptionally awesome photo of Inge that Rogo found. Yellow is not his color.
