Many believe that Detroit Tigers star hitter Miguel Cabrera is hutring the Tigers more than he is bennefiting them. Cabrera has been dealing with hamstring issues and hasn’t been 100% for a while now. Despite fighting injuries Cabrera still hit an A.L. best 348. with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs. But in the Championship Series he is batting only 267 not bad but not Miguel Cabrera. If the Tigers get the real Miggy back it will far increase their shots at the series.
As the regular season comes to a halt, we have two topics to talk about. One, Miguel Cabrera has won the Triple Crown, with a record of .330,44,139. Me and David both didn’t want him to win, because he’s such a jerk, seeing that he has had the police called on him three times, two for getting in a fight. So anyway, he won the Triple Crown, and we don’t think he is worthy of it, like Carl Yastrzemski. Two, the Yankees and the Orioles both clinched their division titles. The Orioles were expected to lose to the Rangers, but they came from behind in a 5-1 game. The Yankees, on the other hand, did the only thing they can do good, and that is hit home runs(sorry David, I had to say that). In a 14-2 rout of the Red Sox, the Yanks hit 4 homers, two for Granderson, and two for Cano, they were also accompanied by three doubles, and eight singles. Cano went 4-4, with 10 total bases. The Yankees will play the winner of the Wild Card game, and so will the A’s.
This Week in Baseball, The Mariners arrive at-and many teams pack up for-spring training. The Mariners are still mouring the loss of Greg Halman, who was stabbed to death in November. They were greeted with T-shirts bearing Halman’s number.
The Marlins are discussing a contract with Cuban star Yoenis Cespedes. He is one of the most sought after players on the open market.
Alex Gordon resigns with the Royals for one year. Nelson Cruz resigns with the Rangers for two years. Miguel Cabrera has lost 20 pounds in order to make the switch back to First base. Jeff Suppan signs a Minor League deal with the Padres, with an invitation to Spring Training. Scott Linebrink has signed a Minor League Deal with the Cardinals, also with a Spring Training Invitation. Manny Ramirez, whom many had thought to be gone for good, is looking for a signing with the Orioles or the A’s. Jed Lowrie has signed with the Astros for one year. Russel Branyan signed a Minor League deal with the Yankees.
That’s all for This Week in Baseball
