It’s a wonder why the Detroit Tigers aren’t under investigation for cheating. They have a machine on their team. Its name is Miguel Cabrera.
Cabrera, the reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner, is chasing history again. He’s possibly looking at another Triple Crown.
How rare is that?
The Triple Crown has only been won 16 times in the history of Major League Baseball, dating back to 1878. And there were 45 years between Carl Yastrzemski’s and Cabrera’s crowns.
The only time there’s ever been a triple crown winner in consecutive years was when Baltimore’s Frank Robinson did it in 1966, followed by Yastrzemski the next year.
The only two players to win multiple Triple Crowns are some guys by the names of Ted Williams and Rogers Hornsby. Two of the greatest hitters ever.
So, that’s how rare it is to see someone in a chase for a second consecutive Triple Crown – it’s never been done.
And let’s not forget to consider the most impressive part. The pitching. Not to take anything away from ...

The day after he capped a Detroit Tigers victory with a walk-off home run (his 39th), 3B Miguel Cabrera continued his assault on a second-straight Triple Crown, blasting his 40th home run on Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Royals. Watch the no-doubter (courtesy of MLB.com):

The balance sheets say Detroit is bankrupt. It does not feel that
way when Miguel Cabrera stands at home plate before sellout crowds
at Comerica Park.

Detroit Tigers: 73-51, 1st Place (6.5 ahead of Cleveland). Best record in the AL.
Taking 3-of-5 from Kansas City was nice (sorry, Cleveland, but KC seems the the bigger threat right now), but after being swept in both games of the double-header–and held to 1 run and 6 hits–it was very nice indeed. All the better that the two series ending wins were driven off the bat of Miguel...
