Leyland sees off-day as key for stars
MINNEAPOLIS -- Jim Leyland said off-days like Thursday's are a "godsend" for Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder. Both have played in all 118 of Detroit's games this season.

Another benefit of the brief break is a little levity for Leyland and the rest of his coaching staff. The Tigers manager said they planned a golf outing for Thursday, weather permitting.

"It's good for those guys," Leyland said. "And it's good for everybody -- the coaches, myself.

"The camaraderie -- I really enjoy stuff like that. We have a good bunch of coaches and we have a good time."
