DETROIT -- Landed in Detroit within the hour and took the loooooooooong cab ride from the airport to the hotel, then high-tailed it here to Comerica Park.
Under a grey sky and light drizzle, the Tigers staged a small workout, with manager Jim Leyland, Game Three starter Anibal Sanchez, catcher Alex Avila and center fielder Austin Jackson meeting the media.
The Giants are scheduled to be talking in the 6 o'clock hour.
The news items of note from Leyland's chat are that Andy Dirks and Quinton Berry will be in the lineup tomorrow (with Delmon Young move back to DH) and that Doug Fister is doing fine but had more tests today after taking the line drive off his head in Game Two last night at AT&T Park.
The weather is supposed to be frigid, and temperatures by the end of the night could be in the high 30s.
Joked Leyland: "This is the World Series and it's cold for everybody. It's cold for the fans, the beer is cold, everything is cold. It's great. Enjoy it."
Elsewhere in baseball, the one Buffalo-centric item that developed today is that Buffalo Baseball Hall of Famer Torey Lovullo has officially been named bench coach of the Boston Red Sox, in a move rumored all week since John Farrell left Toronto to be Boston's manager.
