Found October 24, 2012 on The Majors Detroit:
Last week 89X ran a contest on who could do the best Miguel Cabrera impersonation for a chance to win tickets to Game 4 of the ALCS against the Yankees. First let it be known that I’m no fan of 89X or the cookie cutter morning show they have going on but nonetheless it was pretty funny to hear just how awful these impressions were. The winner’s impression was even god awful. However, Tigers reliever Phil Coke seems to have the Cabrera impression down and I’m positive he would’ve won if he called in despite obviously not needing the tickets. During an interview with “Intentional Talk” on the MLB Network, Coke discusses a conversation he had with Cabrera on their first meeting in the Major Leagues where… he gives a dead on Cabrera impression. This is sound bite gold to say the least… h/t: MLB Network, WXYT

World Series: Detroit Tigers & Giants Game 2 preview & Game 1 notes

Listen, it’s not time to write the obituary for the Detroit Tigers. Yes, the San Francisco Giants looked like an unstoppable force last night against the best pitcher in baseball, but it’s just one game of four that they must win. Wednesday night was an ominous start to be sure. What Pablo Sandoval was able to do by smashing 3 homers in his first 3 at-bats was not only historic...

Phil Coke hilariously impersonates Miguel Cabrera (VIDEO)

Tigers relief pitcher Phil Coke is as funny as they come in the Major Leagues.  He could double as the bullpen comedian on off-days.  Recently, he was interviewed on MLB Network’s “Intentional Talk” with Chris Rose and Kevin Millar.  He was asked what it’s like facing his teammate Miguel Cabrera who is arguably considered the best bat in the game.  For reference, Coke...

Miguel Cabrera Will Be Ready for World Series to Start While Islanders, Patriots Prepare for Big Moves (Video)

The Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants will be kicking off Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night, and for Detroit it will mark their first meaningful game in a week. Some fans might be worried that the Tigers won't be ready after their long layoff, but NESN Nation's Dan Duquette isn't one of them. In fact, he's pretty sure that Miguel Cabrera and Prince...

Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, Buster Posey Are Favorites to Win World Series MVP

Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera became the first player in 45 years to win the Triple Crown this season, and he is likely to win the American League MVP award when that's announced next month. But first things first: could Cabrera win a World Series MVP? He is the 5-1 favorite to do so at Bovada. Cabrera's Tigers would almost certainly have to...

How to do the Miguel Cabrera-Prince Fielder handshake

Prince Fielder told the Detroit Free Press that grown men see him on the street and want to take part in the handshake he has with Miguel Cabrera.  Fielder wouldn’t demonstrate how it’s done, calling it “top secret.”  But technology blew the cover on that.  Now with this tutorial, you and your grown men friends can do the fancy/funky/awkward ritual enjoyed by the Triple...

Miguel Cabrera taunts Jose Valverde in intrasquad scrimmage (Video)

Detroit Tigers pitcher Jose Valverde is known for his excessive antics, and so during this intrasquad scrimmage when third baseman Miguel Cabrera got a single, he decided to taunt him back.It’s good to see that the Tigers are loose and still preparing for the World Series, hopefully this time the layoff won’t hurt them this time around.H/T: Holdout Sports

Bounces don't go Tigers' way

Sometimes, a fire starts in the strangest way. Angel Pagan hit a harmless grounder down the line that Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera had covered. All he had to do was field the ball, show off his strong arm, and the Giants would be done in a 1-2-3 third inning. But the ball hit the inside portion of the bag and ricocheted like a hockey wrist shot into shallow left field. Cabrera...

A Public Apology to Jim Leyland

I was wrong (again…so I think). On September 27th, prior to game 156, I posted that this would likely be Leyland’s last regular season game in Detroit. Now I’m certain he’ll be here next April. As intolerable as Leyland’s idiosyncrasies, tendancies and hunches are, it is these same foibles that have him in his 2nd WS as a Tiger in 6 years. Take that in for a minute. If...

A Yankees fan World Series prediction

My predication is that the 2012 MLB World Series Champion will be the New York Yankees. Oh wait the Yankees lost, my bad. If you could please excuse me as I am trying to purposely forget the ALCS pummeling I had to witness last week vs. the Detroit Tigers, which anyone with a half-a-brain should understand why. But this is not about the Yankees, and admittedly that fact is still...

World Series: Cabrera, Tigers vs Posey, Giants

Way back in spring training, Hunter Pence hit a wicked grounder that smacked Miguel Cabrera in the face. A few months later, Pablo Sandoval launched a bases-loaded triple off Justin Verlander in the All-Star game. Here they all are again, with everything at stake. Tigers-Giants in the World Series. A driven team from Detroit, loaded with power bats and arms, guided by wily Jim...

The World Series Pick: The Detroit Verlanders

Look Into The Face Of Giant Fear We're going to make this quick and dirty, because baseball stopped being very interesting to me weeks ago, and even a historic comeback by the Giants has not re-stoked my fire. Also, I'm just seeing this on really, really simplistic levels. Here's what I wrote about why the Tigers were going to beat the A's in five, which was exactly...

Win a Detroit Tigers Egraph!

Egraphs reached out to me last week and asked if I was interested in running a little contest of sorts to give away a few of their really trendy autographs.
