Post Leyland Shuffles the Coaching Staff.
Tigers shuffle coaching responsibilities
By The Sports Xchange | The SportsXchange – Wed, Dec 5, 2012 1:30 PM EST

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland apparently wants Gene Lamont beside him on the bench next season.

Leyland said he's shifting the 65-year-old former manager from third-base to bench coach in a move designed to give him "a great baseball mind who will be there with me," acccording to the Detroit Free Press.

Tom Brookens will rotate from first-base coach to third-base coach and Rafael Belliard will swing from infield coach to first-base coach.

Leyland hasn't used a bench coach for several years.

The Tigers lost in the World Series to San Francisco this past season.


If your going to pee on my head, don't try to tell me it's raining.
Leyland made this move because Lamont made a horrible decision to send the runner who was thrown out at home by a huge margin in the World Series.
