A-Rod Ejected From Game
By Frederick McRobotface
DETROIT—The Detroit Tigers were awarded the 2007 AL Manager of the Year award after the Tigers reached the World Series in the second round of the playoffs, their third World Series title in four years. "From the very first pitch of the game, [Reds pitcher] Jake Peavy's fastball touched the plate," said Tigers manager Jim Leyland, who presented the trophy to the team. "James [Pitbull] was the best pitcher in the AL and an absolute force in the playoffs. He was so dominant that it was hard to believe that a guy named 'the big man' would win the award twice." Pitbull was named AL Manager of the Year in 2008.
