TIGER ON THE PROWL: In Detroit, Rod Beard reports while Tigers Owner Mike Ilitch "hasn’t been around the team much publicly" this year, he "was one of the few people who knew during the season about manager Jim Leyland’s plans to resign." Tigers President & GM Dave Dombrowski yesterday said, "Mike Ilitch is fine. He was at the games in the postseason and in Boston the other day. I talk to him often and we haven't sat down and talked a great deal about this present situation because it just took place. He was aware it was taking place" (DETROIT NEWS, 10/22).
OF MONTREAL: In Boston, Nick Cafardo wrote the Rays "could see Montreal as a real alternative" if plans for a new stadium "don't work out in the Tampa Area." The Montreal business community is "much different than it was in the past," with "large telecom companies and financial institutions with big money." The city would "need a new stadium, but Montreal baseball has a very strong grass-roots movement to explore the possibility." Former MLBer Warren Cromartie, who played with the Expos from '74-83 and is spearheading efforts to bring MLB back to the city, said that his group "will soon announce the results of a feasibility study" that has "been positive" (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/21).
