One week from today, we'll know.
We'll know if baseball stages an encore to last year's Game 162 magic.
We'll know if Miguel Cabrera becomes the first Triple Crown winner in 45 years.
We'll know if the storybook seasons of the A's and Orioles stretch into the playoffs.
We'll know if the Angels or Rays shatter the odds and snare a wild-card berth.
We'll know if Thursday, Oct. 4, will mean tiebreakers noon to night - or the quiet hum of airplane engines on cross-country flights, in preparation for the Oct. 5 wild-card round.
One week from today, we'll reflect on the 2012 regular season and make bold World Series picks. But there's no time for that now. There are too many games to watch - and too many of them mean something.
Notwithstanding ties and weather delays, the final pitch of the regular season will be thrown shortly after 11 p.m. ET next Wednesday. By then, the players, coaches, managers and club officials who reported to spring t...
BEST OF MAXIM
Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers is closing in on the American League triple crown, which could tip the scales in his favor when it comes time to vote for the Most Valuable Player Award. He entered today with a fairly comfortable lead in batting average over Mike Trout, his chief competition for [...]
81-72, .5 games back.
There was a brief moment of exuberance last night, when the Tigers were arguably tied for first, and Miguel Cabrera was arguably in the Triple Crown lead. Then stephen spoke and all hell broke loose. Minutes later a Josh Hamilton 6th inning HR and an Adam Dunn 8th inning 3 run blast wiped the smiles away, and the Tigers and Cabrera were knocked back down a rung...
ARLINGTON, Texas The only person who could be standing between Detroit's Miguel Cabrera and a Triple Crown is pulling for the Tigers' slugger to become baseball's first Triple Crown winner since 1967.
That doesn't mean Hamilton plans to go into a power funk though.
Cabrera started the day leading the American League in batting average and RBIs. He's second...
No hitter has won baseballs Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. You probably knew that already.
Here, though, is an even more telling piece of information about one of the hardest achievements in professional sports: Until Detroits Miguel Cabrera recently held the American League lead in batting average, home runs and RBI, only one player since Yaz Dick Allen in 1972 ...

ARLINGTON, Texas The only person standing between Detroit's Miguel Cabrera and a Triple Crown is pulling for the Tigers' slugger to be the first to achieve the milestone since 1967.
That doesn't mean Josh Hamilton plans to go into a power funk though.

Former Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski says being in a pennant race will help Detroit's Miguel Cabrera in his attempt to win the Triple Crown.
And Yaz should know: He's the last player to lead his league in batting average, homers and RBIs in the same season. Yastrzemski did it in 1967, when the ''Impossible Dream'' Red Sox clinched the AL pennant on...
Matt Shepard of WDFN in Detroit joins Fox Sports Tonight to discuss Miguel Cabrera's quest for the Triple Crown.
The Pirates, sinking back below .500, have officially been eliminated from making the post-season. They still have 6 games to have a winning record, which I hope they can accomplish.
The other news is the Tigers have taken the lead in the AL Central by a game. The White Sox have been on top of the division for weeks; the Tigers have had quite the run to get back into contention....
BOSTON (AP) -- Former Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski thinks that being in a pennant race will help Detroit's Miguel Cabrera in his attempt to win the Triple Crown.
And Yaz should know: He's the last player to lead his league in batting average, homers and RBIs in the same season.
"In 67, the Triple Crown was never even mentioned once," Yastrzemski said Wednesday...
On an edition of SportsCenter Wednesday afternoon, Rob Parker and Keith Law had a debate about the AL MVP award. I can't find any video online to share the ridiculousness, but essentially, Law provided rational arguments arguing for Mike Trout while Parker took a page from the Skip Bayless book and made his point in favor of Miguel Cabrera by being loud.
After the debate...
Last Week: 3-4

So, What Happened?
Just another bob and weave ride on the choppy waters inside the Good Ship Tiger Pop.
That’s what this team does to you: raises and lowers your hopes like a school flag.
The Tigers fell three games back on Monday after suspect (and MMM is being kind) defense doomed them in a makeup game in Chicago. That...
Or a dogma and pony show. Couldn't decide on which was the best pun...
The American and National League Most Valuable Player Award for 2012 is going to be debated for a long time. Which does not make this year any different than last year. Everybody chooses a side and a dogma to hang onto and the problem for just us average joes is wondering who the heck is right...
