Let’s play it again, Casabianca?
“We haven’t really made any decisions,” explained Leyland, who left Valverde in the game even after a leadoff single by Russell Martin and Ichiro Suzuki’s home run cut the Tigers lead to 4-2. “We want to put our heads together and discuss it first, and get together as a coaching staff and talk about it.
“But I don’t really have any final information on it yet.”
At some point today, Leyland, general manager Dave Dombrowski, assistant GM Al Avila, and the coaching staff will decide ahead of Game 2 (4:07 p.m.) how to deal with replacing the bullpen’s most critical pitcher.
This isn’t a simple matter of shelving and replacing. It goes beyond roles, and extends beyond simple numbers.
“Say, Father, say,
If yet my task is done”
