It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
With a zip-zip score in the fourth inning of the 2013 All Star Game and runners on the corners, Miguel Cabrera figured the American League needed to make something happen. So Cabrera, while leading off third, he gave the steal sign to Orioles first baseman Chris Davis.
Was it because he thought Davis could run on Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina? Heck no. Cabrera was obviously hoping that Davis would pull something so he would miss time and let Cabby back into the American League home run race.
Cabrera leads the AL in batting average at .365 with Mike Trout in second at .322. He leads Davis in RBIs by two, 95-93. But he trails Davis in home runs 37-30.

DETROIT -- When Miguel Cabrera was 16 years old, you could already see glimpses of the player he is today.
Tigers assistant general manager Al Avila was working for the Florida Marlins back then and he distinctly remembers the first time he saw Cabrera in his native Venezuela.
"It was around late August, early September, he was 16 years old," Avila said. "I saw him...
DETROIT Pitching to Miguel Cabrera is a heart-pounding experience. The Detroit Tigers slugger is leading the majors in most hitting categories, as well as mound meetings.
Managers and pitching coaches trudge out to calm down pitchers, provide some sort of plan or a decision to walk him which has happened an American League-leading 60 times.
But most hesitantly pitch to him....
Chris Davis, with 37 home runs so far this season, has been generating a lot of buzz lately — both on the field and more recently with some comments he made during the All-Star break. When he was asked about the all-time home run record, Davis said: “In my opinion, 61 is the record, and I think most fans agree with me on that.” I have no idea if most fans agree with him, but...
Miguel Cabrera certainly likes to have his fun during games and tonight it came at the expense of Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia.
During the pre All-Star Game introductions at Citi Field, Miguel Cabrera came out of the dugout after being introduced giving high-five’s to his American League teammates. However when the 6’4″ Cabrera came to the 5’8″ Pedroia the reining...
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis heads into the all-star break with 37 home runs on the season already. Usually when one has that many home runs in an entire season, it is an impressive feat but the man they call “Crush” Davis is currently on a tear.
With this many home runs prior to the all-star break, Davis ties Reggie Jackson as having the most in American League...
Tigers third baseman stands 6’4″, 250 pounds. Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia stands 5’8″ and 165 pounds. During the All Star pre-game introductions, Cabrera had a little fun at Pedroia’s expense. The look on Pedroia’s face – “HEY! WTF?!” via SB Nation [GIF via SB Nation]
Chris Davis and the Baltimore Orioles were a huge hit before the All-Star break.
Davis mashed a major-league leading 37 homers, and the Orioles sent the ball over the fence 132 times - 17 more than any other team.
Thanks heavily to an offense that ranked third in the majors in scoring, the Orioles hit the break with a 53-43 record and very much in contention to reach the postseason...
Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera was running through the line giving his teammates high fives after being introduced when he pulled off one of the greatest trolls ever. Everyone knows Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is small, so Cabrera offered him a low-five. Needless to say, Pedroia looked pretty upset, while everyone else found it funny; especially...
Players will often tell you that individual accolades don’t matter, which obviously means that half-season awards are child’s play. But hey, who cares?
We’ve arrived at the MLB All-Star break, which is as good a time as any to review how teams have gotten to where they are and which teams will remain in the thick of things come October. It’s also a good time to look back...
Phil Mushnick points out, "Joseph Ortiz, a reliever just up from the minors, struck out Miguel Cabrera, the defending MVP, who swung at a ball that came in belly-button-high and nearly landed in the...

Last year, the race for the AL MVP award between Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout was heated, and often times grew personal between the proponents of either side. The arguments really boiled down to "Triple Crown" versus "historical, five tool, balanced season". In the end, Cabrera won the award rather handily, and the internet grumbled.
This year, there really...
Staying Power OK, so by now everyone knows what Chris Davis and Miguel Cabrera are doing. Davis’s 37 homers before the break are the second-most all time, second only to Barry Bonds’s 39 in 2001 (the year he broke the single-season home run record with 73 dingers in a season). However, when Bonds hit 73 HR, [...]
Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera (6’4) had some fun at the expense of 5’8 Dustin Pedroia during the MLB All-Star Game introductions last night at Citi Field. As Miggy was running down the high five line, he ducked on the Red Sox second baseman but what makes it gold is Pedey’s reaction. If that’s not a “WTF” face then I don’t know what is.
