Morris 'torn' between Twins and Tigers

DETROIT -- Jack Morris wants the Tigers to win the American League Central.

Jack Morris also wants the Twins to win the American League Central.

Monday, Morris was a Tiger, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the World Series he helped win. Tuesday, he was a Twin, working radio for the crucial day-night doubleheader the two teams played at Comerica Park.

Between games? Morris visited both clubhouses, and both managers.

"Believe me, I'm torn," he said. "I want to go talk to [Tigers second-game starter Justin] Verlander and wish him the best. I want to go talk to [Twins second-game starter Brian] Duensing and wish him the best.

"I'm not going to talk to either one of them, because I'm afraid to."

Morris grew up in Minnesota. He spent most of his career with the Tigers, and played for current Tigers manager Jim Leyland in the minor leagues. He won the 1991 World Series with the Twins, and he still lives in the area.

In talking about Tuesday's first game, a 3-2 Twins win in 10 innings, Morris referred to the Twins as "we." But he also admitted that there were times during the game that he found himself briefly pulling for the Tigers.

So which team is he going with?

"The winner," Morris said. "My team's going to win. Right now, I'm pulling for the Twins to tie it up, and take it to the last three games [of the season]."

Pulling for that, and wishing he was still young enough to pitch in this series -- for either team.

"You feel that cool air," the 54-year-old Morris said. "These are the times you really want to be out there."

With Tuesday afternoon's win, the Twins pulled within one game of the Tigers, with three games remaining in the series, and six games left in the regular season.
