The umpiring crew for Game 3 of the AL championship series Tuesday lined up in missing-man formation during a moment of silence for umpire Wally Bell, who died of an apparent heart attack.

"That's the biggest thing right now," the young outfielder said after Wednesday's 11-1 loss to the Tigers. "You've got to play as a family, and everybody's got to want it, starting with the manager on down to everybody."
They've been engaged in conversations with several teams, including at least slightly involved in talks for Astros right-hander Bud Norris, who was held out of his scheduled start in Baltimore. But team and major league officials have not indicated that any move is imminent.
Justin Verlander spent all sorts of time over the last couple months trying to figure out what was wrong and why he was no longer dominating hitters with his terrific fastball.
