Three reasons the Tigers haven’t been able to put away the rest of the American League Central:

1. Jim Leyland’s lineup decisions: I like it that Leyland doesn’t necessarily manage by the book, but common on, settle on a lineup, and use it most games.

2. Inconsistency from the pitching staff: Seems like just when there seems to be trust earned by Tigers’ pitchers not named Justin Verlander or Jose Valverde, they falter. Case in point – Rick Porcello Wednesday night.

3. Miguel Cabrera: His batting average is fine. But he needs to start driving in more runs, especially in the clutch.
