Detroit Tigers Playoff Links: Miggy wants that ring, Davis uncertain, Price ready for Game 3


It’s finally here! Gameday! Game 1 of the 2014 ALDS. Detroit Tigers. Baltimore Orioles.

Get (more) excited.

Today’s morning links looks at Miggy turning down a bonus (for now) to turn his attention fully to winning it all.

Then, Rajai Davis worked out in Baltimore on Wednesday, what does that mean for the Tigers roster for the ALDS?

Finally, while some thought he should be starting in Game 2, David Price is just fine with taking the ball in Game 3–and would happy to trot in from the bullpen in Game 5 if needed.

"Cabrera was sitting at his locker before the Tigers’ workout Wednesday in Baltimore when Max Scherzer came by with a clipboard containing the sheets players must sign to receive their shares of the post-season playoff pool.

"Ausmus: “Rajai came in today and felt much better, but we still have to get past that point of him making some baseball moves in terms of running, exploding out of the box and taking swings, which he hasn’t done yet. So we don’t have any finality on Rajai and/or the roster.”"
