Look, you can yell “that’s why he’s never won a Gold Glove” or “process over results” or “Miggy should probably be wearing his glove when he’s holding the runner on first base” until you’re blue in the face, but he got the out didn’t he?
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has been placed on the disabled list for the first time in his career. Cabrera was placed on the 15-day DL but is expected to miss six weeks with a Grade 3 calf strain.
I dunno, man. There’s nothing in this world more obnoxious than a young boy. Positive reinforcement in form of a bunch of free swag is just going to make this worse.
Dammit, All-Star voters. The goal was to get every Kansas City Royal in the AL lineup, with only Mike Trout as the outlier. Now, Miguel Cabrera has surpassed Eric Hosmer in the first baseman spot by over a million votes, and Mike Moustakas holds an extremely slim lead over Josh Donaldson.
Deadspin readers have overwhelmingly demanded to know what it would look like if various major leaguers had pitcher Aaron Harang’s distinctive eyes. In the interest of service to you, the reader, we present various major leaguers with Aaron Harang’s distinctive eyes.
Adrian Beltre collected his 2,500th hit in Tuesday night's game against the Tigers. (That's pretty impressive! He's only the seventh third baseman to reach the mark.) Miguel Cabrera was at first base to give him the ball and a quick touch on the head. Beltre, a man who hates having his head touched, did not appreciate…
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hates when anyone touches his head. When someone touches his head, a switch flips, and he gets so angry. He's always been like this, and it's always been hilarious. So, when Miguel Cabrera touched his head during a break in play last night, Beltre was unsurprisingly pissed.
This is Miguel Cabrera celebrating his three-run go-ahead homer in the top of the ninth to put the Tigers up 3-1 on the Orioles. Austin Jackson can't fathom what Miggy just did to that baseball.
This has to be a joke, it just has to be. Either it's a joke, or the The Batavia Daily News mistakenly published a Scott DeSmit article on sabermetrics from 2003. There can be no other explanation for this lede: "[c]omputers have ruined baseball and 'Sports Illustrated.'"
The only thing more predictable than ballplayers signing enormous deals is people complaining about them, so when news of Miguel Cabrera's new eight-year, $248 million contract extension broke, you knew that this sort of thing—it amounts to saying that $248 million is a lot of money—was coming.
Miguel Cabrera, AL MVP, again: As expected, the Tigers' third baseman claimed the prize for a second straight year. Cabrera (.348/.442/.636) received 23 of 30 first-place votes. Mike Trout (.323/.432/.557) is your runner-up. He got five first-place votes. Chris Davis and Josh Donaldson got the other two.
This is ridiculous. Whatever your thoughts on decorum in baseball or whatever, one of the games best players should not be getting thrown out of the game in the first inning. Maybe if he spit on the ump. Maybe.
Eagle-eyed reader Dan spotted this during last night's SportsCenter, during which the WWL promoted highlights of the Nats-Tigers game with this graphic of Stephen Strasburg and Miguel Cabrera. Notice anything wrong? ESPN magically turned the league's best hitter into a lefty.
A sore hip flexor kept Miguel Cabrera out of the Tigers' lineup last night, so he had to find other ways to keep himself entertained. Did he read a book? Bust out his iPad? No, he tried to shove a cookie into Brayan Pena's mouth.
Chris Davis hit another home run Sunday, his fourth in as many days. He now has 37 on the season, which leads the league and ties Reggie Jackson's record for most home runs before the All-Star break.
It's July 1, the effective halfway point of the season, so it's time to take notice of what could be the American League's closest and most historic race. Miguel Cabrera has his batting eye on the first ever back-to-back Triple Crowns in baseball history. In his way is Chris Davis, himself right on the pace of a mark…
A few hours after Fernando Rodney gave Miguel Cabrera a dose of some sweet chin music in the 10th inning Saturday night, Miggy deposited this solo sh0t into the Rays Tank at Tropicana Field Sunday afternoon. It leveled the score at 1-1 in the fourth inning Sunday.
I'm gonna preface all this by telling you that I don't really watch baseball, nor do I particularly care who won the AL MVP award. But the beauty of reading a terrible Mitch Albom column is that you don't HAVE to know much about anything, because Mitch will always deliberately know less than you. Mitch writes for a…
On September 30, LaVelle E. Neal III, the Twins beat writer for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, wrote an impassioned summation of why Angels super-rookie Mike Trout should be considered the clear favorite for American League MVP. It's short, but it's actually a good, quick defense against the old-school, RBI-enamored…
