Niyo: Picture still cloudy for muddled Tigers

Detroit — It was a good weekend for business at Comerica Park, and not just for the obvious reasons.

It started with a team meeting that was perhaps overdue but also thoroughly downplayed by the Tigers — “Meeting? What team meeting?” Miguel Cabrera joked Sunday — following an embarrassing Friday night display coming out of the All-Star break.

And it ended with a 6-5 extra-inning victory over Toronto, a 4-hour, 16-minute getaway grind that was capped in strangely dramatic fashion: a walk-off walk from Cabrera to cap a hitless rally in the bottom of the 11th on Sunday.
