Miguel Cabrera


Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers has reached a feat that hasn’t been reached since 1967.  With a .330 average, 44 home runs and 139 RBIs he won the Triple Crown award. No one has achieved this since Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. My mom was still in diapers, but I digress….

“Unbelievable,” Cabrera said. “I don’t believe this happened right now. I didn’t believe three weeks ago it was going to happen. I didn’t believe this was possible. But you always dream. Thank God I got an opportunity for this dream to
come true.”

Great job Miguel!  We’ll most likely see a MVP award also handed to him.  What a year!  Who knows who will ever accomplish this  again.  It’s been a great year in baseball!

Home Run Derby in Detroit

Wow.  Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera hit two home runs as the Tisers destroyed the Red Sox 10-0.  It looks like Prince Fielder has settled in fine with the Tigers.  I already miss the memories of him hitting massive shots at Miller Park.  Alex Avila also hit just one homer.  Detroit didn’t like seeing Doug Fister go only  3 2/3 innings with an injury to his left side.  Now Fister is on  the disabled list for 15 days.   All together they racked up 5 home runs.  Josh Beckett got shelled.  He let off 5 home runs and 7 runs.  if you look back to last season he didn’t let his 5th homer come untill June 28.  Not a way you want to start a season for sure.  The loaded Boston line up couldn’t put together any runs at all. Jacoby Ellsbury, Kevin Youkilis, Cody Ross and Mike Aviles have been hitless the first 2 games.  Boston puts itself at 0-2 hoping to bounce back today on Easter.
