Right-hander Jose Valverde and the New York Mets have agreed to a minor league contract.
The untuck thing is a celebration that is a lot like Soriano. It's understated, easy to miss. It's also effective. And cool. Most important, for all its simplicity, it's fun. Sports are supposed to be fun, remember?
Jim Leyland insisted throughout the latter part of the season that there would be a time and a place to discuss his managing future.
Pete Rose sat in the World Series. So did Reggie Jackson, Barry Zito and Paul O'Neill. Tim Lincecum lost his spot in the San Francisco Giants' rotation this October, and Jose Valverde forfeited his role as the Detroit Tigers' closer.
Best in baseball? The Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants spent much of the season just trying to catch mediocre teams like the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers just to win their divisions.
Game 1 of the 2012 World Series is in the books. Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs and the San Francisco Giants cruised to an 8-3 rout of the Detroit Tigers behind Barry Zito and Tim Lincecum.
Jim Leyland and the Detroit Tigers found out the hard way that rest means rust in the World Series.
Max Scherzer capped a stupendous stretch for Detroit's starting rotation, and the Tigers advanced to the World Series for the second time in seven years by beating the New York Yankees 8-1 Thursday for a four-game sweep of the American League Championship Series.
Justin Verlander took a shutout into the ninth inning and the Detroit Tigers held on to beat the New York Yankees 2-1 Tuesday night for a 3-0 lead in the AL Championship Series.

The Detroit Tigers got a big boost from Anibal Sanchez's arm. They got a helping hand from an umpire, too.
Raul Ibanez struck again.
Already an ace and MVP, Justin Verlander proved to be the Detroit Tigers' ultimate closer, too.
After a season filled with dramatic comebacks and memorable endings, the Oakland Athletics now expect the unexpected.
If someone wants to untuck his shirt after hitting a game-winner off Soriano, he said he'd be OK with that.
"People have to remember, this is hard for us," said Detroit closer Jose Valverde, whose brief dance that is sometimes accompanied by a loud scream makes what Soriano does look really tame.
