Say what? Jim Leyland channels Boomhauer from ‘King of the Hill’ during in-game interview

One of the reasons for the Detroit Tigers' current postseason struggles? They may not be able to understand a single word of wisdom that manager Jim Leyland is giving them.

Listen to Leyland's in-game interview from Tuesday's ALDS Game 4 below. When Leyland was talking in the fourth inning the Tigers still didn't have their first hit in the game. At the time of this posting, in the fifth inning, the Tigers were trailing 3-0 but they did have two hits off A's pitcher Dan Straily.

If the Tigers do get bounced from the playoffs on Tuesday, we don't think we'll see Leyland shacking up in a TV studio offering analysis if he's jabbering like this. But he might be able to go drink some beers with Boomhauer from "King of the Hill."

The postseason is upon us. Spend it with The Stew.
