On Aug. 8, 2011, a day the Tigers did not play and the logical time to make the announcement, they revealed the re-signing of president/CEO/GM Dave Dombrowski to a new four-year deal and Jim Leyland to a one-year extension of his expiring contract.

Thursday, another day the Tigers did not play, came and went with Leyland still working on that same deal and no word about next season.

It could mean something or it could be meaningless, but it has the potential to become a distraction for a team that needs to focus all its energies on catching the Chicago White Sox in the American League Central.
