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?

"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. That’s money, real cash money.“I’m not signing anything,” Cabrera told Scherzer. Teammate Victor Martinez, who had just signed, looked quizzically. Scherzer tried to explain."
Rajai Davis’ status remains a mystery for Tigers – John Lowe, Detroit Free Press
"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.”"
"Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Wednesday that he would consider bringing Price out of the bullpen next Wednesday if the five-game series between the Tigers and Baltimore Orioles came down to a do-or-die Game 5.“If we’re in Game 5, it’s all hands on deck,” Ausmus said."
