• American League Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera left the Tigers' clubhouse without speaking to reporters following his team's 2-0 loss to San Francisco in Game 3 of the World Series, and manager Jim Leyland wants to know why. Cabrera popped out with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and went 1 for 4 on Saturday night. He is 2 for 9 (.222) with an RBI in the Series. “I will deal with the situation and check into it because you have to be there through the good and the bad. You can't be on this podium only when you win,” Leyland said. “When we're 0-3, I've got to be up here, and I'm not the happiest camper in the world.”
• The Tigers scratched catcher Alex Avila from their starting lineup for Game 4 and replaced him with Gerald Laird. Avila, in Sunday night's original starting lineup, had been playing with a sore right arm since he was hit between the elbow and wrist by a foul tip in the opener.
• Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw won the Roberto Clemente Award, given annually to a major league player who gives back through community service and also excels on the field. Clemente, a Hall of Fame right fielder with the Pirates, died in a plane crash on New Year's Eve 1972 while trying to deliver food and relief supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua.
• Japanese baseball officials are considering stricter rules for amateur players who bypass the country's professional leagues to play in Major League Baseball. Concern with existing rules arose after pitcher Shohei Otani decided to pursue a career in the major leagues instead of playing Japanese professional baseball.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
