Congratulations to Jim Leyland who became just the 18th manager to work 3000 games Sunday night, as his Detroit Tigers swept the Chicago White Sox at US Cellular Field 9-7 in 11 innings. Leyland’s first big league managerial job was with the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1986-1996, where he won two Manager of the Year trophies, and led the Pirates to three consecutive National League Championship Series (1990-1992). In 1997, he led the Florida Marlins to their first World Series Championship. He spent the 1999 season as manager for the Colorado Rockies, but walked away from the last two years of his contract. In 2005, the Detroit Tigers announced Leyland as manager for the 2006 and promptly took their first World Series appearance in 22 years.
