With a long (long) blast down the third-base line in New York's Citi Field -- off the just-called up Daisuke Matsuzaka, no less -- Miguel Cabrera has given us the second thirty-second trot of the 2013 season! Way to go, Miggy!
The trot officially clocked in at 30.94 seconds.
Here's how it came about:
Cabrera stepped up to the plate in the second inning with two outs and a runner on second. On the first pitch of the at-bat, Cabrera turned on the ball and drove it high and far down the left field line. He pulled the ball so far that Miggy had to step backwards towards the catcher to see where it flew, casually dropping his bat in the process.
Eventually (at 4.87 seconds), the ball landed just fair of the foul pole. When the camera cut back to Cabrera (6.95 seconds), he seemed to be only just then starting his trot to first. There is no footage of the reigning Triple Crown winner touching first base, but he didn't reach second until 17.21 seconds. He co...

AROUND THE WEB
At first glance of the boxscore, Daisuke Matsuzaka was who we thought he was. And there was no way that Miguel Cabrera would let him off the hook. Dice K gave up two home runs including a three run shot to Cabrera that tragically landed in somebody's pierogies in the Acela Club, and the Mets predictably lost to the Tigers 6-1.
Considering that Daisuke's outing was peppered...

DETROIT -- Home-run sluggers make headlines, and batting averages have defined hitters dating all the way back to Detroit Tigers immortal Ty Cobb.
The Triple Crown statistic that musters the least attention and acclaim is runs batted in -- the RBI or ribbie, in the vernacular of the game.
Most of the games outstanding hitters, however, will tell you that the RBI is the most important...
74-53, 1st place, 5 games up.
“WAR – What is it good for?”
Well, evaluating players, for one thing. Or so we think.
As we all know, the WAR debate dominated the MVP race last year, with Cabrera and his old school hitting stats (summarized as “the best right handed hitter in our generation”) beat out the sabre-favorite Mike Trout and his 1st to 3rd ability and low GIDP...
Third baseman Miguel Cabrera is out of the starting lineup for Detroit's game against the Cleveland Indians.
Cabrera has been bothered by a strained left abdominal wall for more than a month. The reigning AL MVP made an early exit from each of the Tigers' last two games.
Cabrera leads the majors with a .359 average and 130 RBIs, and his 43 home runs put him four behind...
While Miguel Cabrera won't let a few nagging injuries slow him down, Justin Verlander should be more than ready to continue his recent dominance of the Minnesota Twins.
As Cabrera deals with his ailing body, Verlander looks to avoid a third straight winless outing Thursday against the visiting Twins.
Plagued by groin, abdominal and hip issues, Cabrera still delivered a three...
INVISIBLE MONSTER THICKBURGER!!!
I don’t know if any of you assholes are paying attention to the Yankees right now (quietly getting back into the wild card race!), but every little news nugget coming out of New York recently is major LULZ. The FACT that Alex Rodriguez is still playing, playing well to boot, getting thrown at constantly, having his lawyers publicly run smack about...

THE METS HAVE AS MANY...
Imagine what Miguel Cabrera might be doing if he were completely healthy.
The reigning AL MVP hit a mammoth homer, Rick Porcello enjoyed a happy homecoming and the Detroit Tigers polished off a three-game sweep of the New York Mets with an 11-3 victory Sunday.
Cabrera's two-run drive was his 42nd long ball of the season and 10th in 19 games. He went 3 for 4 with a walk, raising...
Before Friday’s game Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter sat by his locker in the visiting clubhouse studying video on his iPad of Mets starter Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Hunter was cramming to prep for Matsuzaka who signed a one-year contract Thursday and was named Friday’s starter after spending the season with the Indians at Triple A Columbus.
Hunter’s studying paid off as he went...
Miguel Cabrera and the first-place Detroit Tigers have been swinging extremely hot bats of late.
They appear to have another favorable matchup against A.J. Griffin, who hasn't been able to keep the ball in the park.
The Tigers go for a fourth consecutive victory in Monday night's series opener against the slumping Oakland Athletics, who visit Comerica Park for the first...
