Opponent: Detroit Tigers
Series: Monday, 7 p.m.; Tuesday, 7 p.m.; Wednesday, 7 p.m.
Site: Edison Field.
Matchup: It speaks volumes about the state of the Tigers that pitcher Jeff Weaver appears to be happier in the Yankee bullpen than he was as the ace of the Detroit staff. In an interview with CBS Sportsline, Weaver ripped interim Manager Luis Pujols--"If they want any direction in the future, I would hope they would find another manager. I don't think there's any respect over there for the manager and that's half the problem"--and said of Tiger President and General Manager Dave Dombrowski: "He likes to have people around him to control."
