How red hot is Miguel Cabrera right now? Well, he turned a fly ball to the warning track Wednesday night into his fifth homer in three games, thanks to a huge assist from Cleveland’s Michael Bourn.
With the Tigers up 9-7 in the eighth inning, Cabrera smacked a high drive to deep right-center field. Bourn, though, raced back to the wall and had room to reach up and make the grab … except the ball hit the heel of his glove and ricocheted over the fence for a two-run homer.
Both Bourn and Cabrera reacted with a smile — Bourn out of embarrassment, Cabrera apparently out of joyful surprise. Here’s the play:
BEST OF MAXIM
Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera is the best hitter on the planet, and quite possibly the best hitter of our generation. When he’s not hitting home runs, it appears he is scoping out the attractive girls in the stands. On Tuesday night during the Tigers game against the Cleveland Indians he got ready to toss a foul ball to a fan in the stands. A tattooed girl was...
45 games into the season the Detroit Tigers are in the middle of a tighter than expected AL Central race. Detroit enters play on Friday trailing the upstart Cleveland Indians by a half game. Kansas City is five games behind the Tribe with the White Sox only a ½ game behind them. The Minnesota Twins, as expected, are bringing up the rear at 18-26 and eight games back.
If only Justin...

Miguel Cabrera is in search of another Triple Crown with the Detroit Tigers this year, and he certainly doesn’t need any help from his opponents along the way. Cabrera has hit five home runs in his last three games and has 13 on the season. Had it not been for a little assistance from Cleveland Indians center fielder Michael Bourn, his total...
Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera almost lost a battle with a screaming foul ball off the bat of teammate Matt Tuiasosopo. Cabrera laughed it off playfully but there is no doubt Manager Jim Leyland would have had some choice words for “Big Matt” had he injured the franchise player.

Last night Miguel Cabrera got an assist from Cleveland Indians center fielder Michael Bourn. Cabrera really doesn’t need the help, but he will gladly take it when it comes to hitting a home run.

Just when we thought it was okay to give the 2013 MVP to the last year’s Triple Crown and MVP winner, Miguel Cabrera guess who decides to crash the party? Mike Trout, the sophomore sensation who finished second in the AL MVP vote last year.

With no games until this evening, it's as good a time as any to honor the most locked-in players in Baseball.About 20 years ago, a scout told me the best way to quickly see which players are on top of their game is to look at past 14-days stats, and our Fortnight Awards stubbornly celebrate the debatable, old-school mentality.I tend to believe that streakiness is a result of...
