Miguel Cabrera Home Run Ball Winds Up In Fish Tank; Detroit Tigers Can’t Buy a Win
At this point in time, the Detroit Tigers have absolutely no excuse for not being atop their division by at least 10 games. Instead, Detroit has scuffled and is tied for first place with the surging Cleveland Indians as we pass the halfway mark of the 2013 MLB season. While I’m not calling for manager Jim Leyland‘s job, something definitely needs to get done in Detroit before it’s too late.
Although the Tigers record doesn’t show it, Miguel Cabrera is on a tear similar to that of 2012 — that campaign ended with the Tigers’ slugger earning MLB’s first Triple Crown Award since 1967. Believe it or not, No. 24 is on pace for another record-breaking year with the Triple Crown waiting in the wings. Cabrera’s biggest competition has got to be Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles, who has already smashed a league-leading 31 home runs this season.
However, Miggie has Davis and the entire league beat in two of the three categories necessary to win the award in RBI and batting average, so stay tuned to see what the rest of the season has in store for Detroit’s biggest bat.
Now, if there was a statistic for number of baseballs hammered into The Rays Touch Tank, then Cabrera would be head and shoulders better than Davis. In Sunday’s game versus the Tampa Bay Rays Miggie belted a solo shot that landing among the fish at Progressive Field in Tampa Bay. This is a rare feat as the only other player to hit a ball in the tank is Luis Gonzalez who splashed one way back in 2007.
It’s safe to say that Cabrera is must-watch television from this point on.
