Leyland, Tigers to talk extension

That will happen Monday, and Leyland is hoping to emerge from his meeting with another year on his contract, which would put him through 2009. President/GM Dave Dombrowski approached him about his situation several weeks ago, he said, and they both decided it would be best to discuss once the season ends. Considering the Tigers want him around, it’s a formality. Don’t expect a multi-year extension, because Leyland doesn’t want to go that far into the future.
