Russell leaves scouting department; Littlefield joins staff

One of the hallmarks of Dave Dombrowski's tenure with the Tigers has been the continuity of his staff, keeping his inner circle of trusted advisors largely together in an era when even top evaluators often bounce around and success usually leads to bigger things for assistants.

Price's impressive effort for naught in Game 3 loss

This kind of game was the reason the Tigers traded for David Price.
