NEW YORK -- Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, who is managing the American League All-Star team, spoke Monday afternoon about his decision to choose Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman for his squad over the New York Yankees' Hiroki Kuroda. Leyland, who announced his starting lineup Monday , said he had about five names he was considering to take the spot of Justin Verlander, who pitched Sunday and thus isn't available for Tuesday's game. “I looked at it very thoroughly, and at the end of the day, I added Tillman because I just felt like ... I'd almost be embarrassed not to take a guy that's 11-3 to the All-Star Game," Leyland said.

The Orioles first baseman, starting in his first All-Star appearace, leads the majors with 37 homers. He typically bats fifth for the Orioles. In Tuesday's game at Citi Field, Davis will bat behind the Angels' Mike Trout, the Yankees' Robinson Cano and the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera. Leyland, the manager of the reigning AL champion Tigers, was asked if it was tough to decide on his batting order with all the sluggers voted into his lineup.

"I'm supposed to be the leader. That's why they hired me. The leaders on the team are the guys who hit .330 with 30 home runs and knock in 140 runs. I never saw a guy who hit .200 be the leader. I don't buy all that leadership stuff." Jim Leyland Detroit Tigers manager

Good morning --Jim Leyland -- You're a genius - unless you don't make the World Series. QUESTION OF THE DAY Should people complain that the Baltimore Marathon messes up traffic in the city one day a year? No. On that one day each year, most of us should get our fat, lazy butts outside, leave the car parked and truly run (or walk) our errands. Ken Diehl Towson If the people of Baltimore cannot be inconvenienced for one day because of a worthy sporting event that brings people together, then shame on them.

Quote: "[Mark McGwire] has got great memory recall on pitchers. He has the ability to remember what a pitcher has done to him." -- Cardinals video coordinator Chad Blair.It's a fact: With almost a fourth of the season over, the Mets have allowed only five unearned runs.Who's hot: Since joining the Cubs after finger surgery last July, Kevin Tapani is 15-5 in 23 starts.Who's not: With two more errors yesterday, the Marlins have committed 42 this season.On deck: Though the Cubs are on a roll, rumors continue to circulate that Marlins manager Jim Leyland will replace Jim Riggleman with Chicago next season.

With one week to go in the season, there isn't much left to influence the division races -- but the same isn't true for individual honors.But Pendleton has better numbers than he had when he won ayear ago, and Sheffield still has an outside chance at winning the Triple Crown. The Padres' late fade will hurt Sheffield.Prediction: Sheffield deserves it, but Atlanta's repeat peformance will be enough for Pendleton to do the same.* Cy Young Award: A month ago this wasn't even a contest, but Atlanta left-hander Tom Glavine has stumbled in his bid to repeat.

MIAMI -- Baseball is a wonderfully sentimental diversion. Despite those long stretches of loathing over player strikes and games that take too long to play, baseball somehow remains ingrained in the souls of its addicts.It's what made ''Field of Dreams'' such a poignant film.The film, and its predecessor book, W.P. Kinsella's ''Shoeless Joe,'' trifled with our emotions by evoking a past of a conjured purity. The book sanitized the sport's past because we wanted it that way.''Is this heaven?

Seeing Jim Leyland so close to another World Series reminds me of his lowered expectations going into the 1998 season while managing the Florida Marlins, who were coming off a championship and a total and thorough gutting of the team by the front office. Leyland had to say all the right things publicly about the Marlins, but he knew they had no chance of competing. So toward the end of spring training, with his office door closed and a few reporters inside that he could trust, he basically announced: "We're terrible.

With Camden Yards rocking, ESPN cameras filming and a million or so Americans watching, Chris Tillman took the mound for the Orioles against the New York Yankees, pitching them to a win Sunday night and a sweep. Tillman struggled with his command in the first two innings, but the 25-year-old allowed two earned runs and five hits in six innings, winning his sixth straight start and lowering his rotation-leading ERA to 3.68. Tillman has been making a strong push for All-Star Game consideration, but has he made his move too late?

Barry Bonds clearly has lost touch with reality. His agent, Jeff Borris, recently said he's actively seeking out contending teams for Bonds to sign with for next season because the 43-year-old player wants to go out a World Series winner. Remember, even in his hometown of San Francisco - one of the few places Bonds was cheered - he was shown the door. So, let's review: A) Bonds is facing an indictment on federal perjury and obstruction of justice charges (which the agent contends won't conflict with next season)

Kansas City, Mo. -- After missing the first two games of the series because he was in Baltimore after the birth of his fourth child, reliever Jamie Walker entered the Orioles' clubhouse about two hours before last night's game, carrying several boxes of cigars. When he arrived at his locker, he was mobbed by teammates, who offered hugs and congratulatory handshakes and left with cigars. "I had enough time to stop off at the tobacco store for the boys," Walker said.

Three years ago, the Detroit Tigers were the talk of baseball. Not in a good way, though. In 2003, the Tigers flirted with infamy, posting a 43-119 record while finishing 47 games out of first place. They challenged, and came up just short, in matching the 1962 New York Mets for baseball's worst record of the past 50 years. Those Tigers were filled with fresh faces, and in many cases, they didn't belong in the big leagues. The next two seasons they improved but couldn't surpass the 72-win mark.

NEW YORK -- A day after being scratched from the lineup because of leg soreness, first baseman Will Clark left the team yesterday to have his severely swollen left knee examined by team doctors in Baltimore.Team officials would not speculate on whether Clark will be placed on the disabled list for the second time this season, but manager Ray Miller indicated he believed the condition something more than a day-to-day problem."If he doesn't feel he can play it takes a lot to keep him out," Miller said.
