The Ann Arbor News’ Tom Ganert on baseball’s last 30 game winner, and his continued descent into loserdom.

Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Denny McLain is back in jail for failing to appear in court on a civil matter and told police he’s broke, authorities said Friday.

Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezotte said he spoke to McLain after he was arrested by sheriff’s deputies at 3 p.m. Friday. He said McLain told him he didn’t know what the missed court appearance in Livingston County was about, except that it centered on money issues.

Bezotte said McLain also told him he couldn’t meet the $175,000 bail – or 10 percent.

“He said he doesn’t have the money to post bail,” Bezotte said.

But the Livingston County Jail said McLain’s bond was posted later in the evening and McLain was due to leave the jail at about 8 p.m. Friday. He has to appear before a judge within 10 days.

A woman who answered McLain’s home phone at 8 p.m. said he was expected home shortly but said they would have no comment.
