Tigers | No clarification on closer

Updating previous reports, Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland is not saying who he will use as his closer this season, and it's possible that he could go with some sort of closer-by-committee. "We'll have somebody to get the last three outs," Leyland said. "It might be two different guys on a night. It might be a lefty to get the second out of the inning and a righty to get the third out. But what people don't realize is that when you have to do it that way, the effect it has on you in the seventh inning, because you can't use that guy to get the biggest out in the seventh inning. (But) if you can't get the out in the seventh inning, the ninth don't mean spit. That's where it gets tricky."
