I truly have to say that the MLB baseball IQ is at an all-time low! I just don’t understand why anyone would continue to pitch to the leagues best pure hitter. There is no doubt that Miguel Cabrera will indeed catch Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis. Davis leads all of baseball with 46 home runs, which is a all-time high for him breaking his own career high of 33 homers just last season. But we are talking about Miggy, who already defeated the odds of achieving a triple crown just last year and on the verge of repeating that feat. Roger Hornsby and Ted Williams are the only players in MLB history to win the triple crown twice. No one has ever done it in back to back seasons. Take a look at home run #43!

Miguel Cabrera home run. Also, water is wet and the sun is hot.

Whenever I get a scorecenter alert I just assume Miguel Cabrera hit a home run

Cabrera will probably win the AL MVP unanimously, he is currently batting .359BA 43HR 130RBI. Is it possible that Miggy will do it in consecutive years? Let me know what you think.

Remember last year when Miguel Cabrera won a Triple Crown and the MVP even though Mike Trout was probably the more valuable player? Well, don’t look now, but Miguel Cabrera looks poised to win this year’s MVP going away and possibly win a second straight Triple Crown even though, in some regards, Fat Mike Trout has sophomore slumped his way to an even better season than last...
FRIENDS NOT ENEMIES
Chris Davis is Miguel Cabrera's biggest obstacle blocking him from winning the Triple Crown, but he wants the Tigers slugger to win it.
Only Chris Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history.
As he heads toward the conclusion of another sensational season with the Detroit Tigers, Cabrera has a decent shot at becoming the first major league player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons.
Entering play Monday, Cabrera comfortably led the AL with a .356 batting average, 28 points higher than runner...
DETROIT It has been about two months since I thought Miguel Cabrera could win the Triple Crown in consecutive seasons. Hes running away with a third straight batting title and the RBI crown. However, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has stayed comfortably ahead in the home run derby.
Cabrera would hit one to draw closer, and Davis would hit one to keep the lead safe...

Miguel Cabrera did his usual thing, coming up with another big homer for the Detroit Tigers. This time, their pitching let them down.
Three relievers allowed at least one run as the Tigers lost 8-6 to the Oakland Athletics on Monday night, ending a three-game winning streak.
''We just didn't pitch good. I don't know what else to tell you,'' Detroit manager...

For most who watched baseball two decades ago, the summer of 1998 was the absolute pinnacle of excitement. Sammy Sosa battling Mark McGwire for the single season home run title? Drama on every pitch? Baseball fans finally had everything...
77-54, 1st place, 5.5 up on the Indians.
The Tigers just treated us to one of the most exciting games of the season, but wound up on the wrong side of 8-6. There was another Miggy Moment, the 2-run HR to right field on a 3-1 pitch off the plate that tied the game. Miguel Cabrera is the Babe Ruth of our time, make no mistake. No pinstripes on that guy, either. He’s a TIGER. Fielder...
In 2012, Miguel Cabrera added to his mantle a Triple-Crown and a hotly-contested MVP, edging out Mike Trout in one of the most debated award-races in recent memory.
In 2013, there will be no such debate. In 2013, the question isn’t whether Miguel Cabrera’s season deserves to stand atop the current crop of players that look so human in comparison.
The question is where this season...
There’s no place like home — that’s certainly how the Red Sox should feel as they start a nine-game homestand after playing 16 games on the road.
They kick it off Monday night with a three-game set against the Orioles, who certainly shouldn’t be underestimated. O’s Slugger Chris Davis leads the league in home runs, and is a force to be reckoned with on offense.
Chris Davis had two hits and collected his 118th RBI, and the Baltimore Orioles hit three home runs in a 10-3 rout of the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.
J.J. Hardy, Nick Markakis and Nate McLouth connected for the Orioles, who took two of three from Oakland to move within two games of the Athletics in the race for the second AL wild-card slot.
Oakland had gone 105 straight games...
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...
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...
