Brad Ausmus excited to begin as Tigers manager

Brad Ausmus will arrive in Lakeland, Fla., on Sunday to begin his tenure as manager of the Tigers, taking over for legend Jim Leyland. Even Leyland realized there needed to be a new voice, a new way of doing things in Detroit. The Tigers were good but stale.
