Jim Leyland stinkpalmed Ron Washington before Game 5

Yesterday, the Detroit Tigers beat the Texas Rangers in Game 5 of the ALCS, sending the series back to Texas for Game 6 on Saturday and, Tigers fans hope, Game 7 after that.

And while many people will credit a fluky bounce of the ball at third base for turning the tide of Game 5, the secret to the Tigers victory actually came much earlier, during the pregame. That is when Tigers skipper Jim Leyland executed his own form of hit-and-run on Rangers manager Ron Washington, as documented by AP photographer Paul Sancya.

Look at the two pictures below, which were taken and posted successively at ESPN.com (click here, view pic, then click next) and then documented by eagle-eyed Redditor King_Hippo here.

That’s not the way baseball go Jim. That’s dirty.

Here is a picture of Ron Wash taken right after he was informed of Leyland’s stinkpalm sabotage:

When Leyland is pulling fast ones over on Washington like that in the pregame, what real chance do the Rangers have once the game starts?

As I’ve always said, beware of men in funny hats.
