Are the Detroit Tigers about to make a trade involving one of their biggest pieces? No, I don’t have an inside scoop. No, I don’t have a story that nobody else does. I’m just good at making spreadsheets and letting them do all the math for me.

Cabrera, who wasn’t wearing his glove, successfully got enough of Sanchez’s throw with said glove to enable him to scramble and still throw out Fowler at second. And while...

Miguel Cabrera loses glove, still manages to record out

During the Tigers’ 10-8 win over the Cubs on Tuesday night, Miguel Cabrera showed off some of that defense that he’s…well, really not well-known for.
