Home field advantage for the World Series is on the line and Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland understands it could mean the difference between winning and losing. Considering that the Tigers are favorites to advance to the World Series,  this game means a little more to Leyland than his National League counterpart, Bruce Bochy. That may be why the Tigers skipper chose so many Tigers as reserves for the midsummer classic.
