We can all put to rest whether or not Miguel Cabrera’s “Triple Crown” season last year was a fluke or not. Going into Sunday night’s game against the Texas Rangers, Miggy was leading the majors in hitting with a .384BA 8HR, and 46RBI. Then all of a sudden the Texas Rangers and baseball fans all over the nation witnessed the best hitter in the modern era. Cabrera put on a show as he muscled out three pitches over the wall, at The Ball Park of Arlington that traveled well beyond 1300 feet. He had a 3-run shot in the third, and a solo shot in the fifth, both against Derek Holland. He added another home run in the eighth against Tanner Scheppers which gives him 11HR, one off the American League lead. Cabrera went 4-4, 3HRs, single, intentional walk, 5RBI, and scored 4 runs and it still wasn’t enough as his Detroit Tigers fell to the Rangers 11-8.
Miguel Cabrera has hit three home runs once before. It happened on May 28, 2010 against the Oakland A’s.
As of right now, Cabrera is on track to have a better season than his Triple Crown season. If his immaculate pace continues he end up with a .387BA 42HR 181RBI OBP.457 SLG.659 and OPS 1.116!

Miguel Cabrera is a pretty good hitter. On the heels of his 4 for 4, three home run, five RBI night against the Texas Rangers, his current numbers (through 42 games) make his numbers from last year through the 42 games look ordinary.
At the time of this post (May 20, 11:30 EDT), Cabrera leads the American League (and Majors) in batting average with a .387 clip. Rays first...
Even though the Detroit Tigers lost to the Texas Rangers, 11-8, Miguel Cabrera put on quite a show at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Cabrera finished 4-4 on the night (one intentional walk) and also hitting three long balls back-to-back-to-back.
It’s either Cabrera or Albert Pujols for the best hitter in our era. I’d have to side with Cabby.
The Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera is probably the best player in all of baseball. It is tough to argue with at this very moment. His body of work over the past several seasons cannot be matched by anyone in all of Major League Baseball. Last year, he captured the Triple Crown, the first time anyone had done that in 45 years. This helped him capture the AL MVP award over Mike Trout...
It's been awhile since I've seen an "Eephus pitch" thrown at the Major League level but clearly, Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish knows how to use it.

In Monday night's Yankees-Orioles game at Camden Yards , New York's Robinson Cano and Baltimore's Chris Davis each hit their 13th home run of the season, giving them the share of the AL lead. But it's a guy sitting two home runs behind them, and who didn't even play on Monday, making all the headlines -- again.
With his three-homer game at Texas on Sunday night...
David Murphy put Texas ahead with a three-run home run, and the Rangers spoiled a three-homer game from Miguel Cabrera with an 11-8 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night.
Murphy's shot just over the fence in right field gave Texas an 8-7 lead and answered a bases-loaded double from Prince Fielder that put Detroit up by two in the sixth inning after the Rangers had...

Detroit Tigers superstar Miguel Cabrera is on pace for perhaps a second Triple Crown. That impresses Barry Bonds, but Bonds still believes he's far better.
Honestly had no idea who Miguel was until he showed up on every site in the world during the evening. (And, sadly, it ain't Miguel Cabrera.) This time on BroBible via Guyism.

Former outfielder and slugger Barry Bonds typically tries to stay away from the media as he has made it clear over the years that he does not enjoy talking to them. So when Bonds actually does decide to speak, it usually is something worth noting or at least being discussed. Bonds did a phone interview [...]
