Miguel Cabrera Triple Crown - akbobcat - 09-27-2012 07:37 AM

I'm not a fan of the Tigers or Miguel but I would like to see Miggy take the Triple Crown. I find this feat so fascinating and extremely rare. This is the closest I have ever seen any one get to this coveted title.

The Hr's are going to be the tough one for him. His last few games have made his Ba slip a bit so hopfully he finishes these last few games strong and at least gets the Mvp.

I don't know how anyone could root against a guy who has a chance to accomplish something that hasn't been done in 40+ years. It's pretty remarkable when a guy is able to get this close. -Of course, I'm a tiger fan, so I'm obviously biased. But I'd be cheering for anyone not in a white sox uniform to achieve the triple crown. (Even then, I'd quietly respect the feat). It's great, too, that he's doing it while in the playoff hunt.

EASY!! I'm not a fan of baseball in general. I'm a fan of Nolan Ryan & the Texas Rangers!!

I get your point. But the guy is a Dbag. He's gotten multiple DWI's. Had to have the GM bail him out of jail. Just don't like him. He reminds me of Manny. Great ballplayer, not a great person....

Man, I live in Michigan and follow Cabrera/Tigers closely. He definitely screwed up, and has a drinking problem (which he is addressing), but it's been a year-and-a-half problem free. He's been a good citizen since then. Far from a d-bag. And far from Manny, who had attitude (and PED) issues for a long time. I don't think that's a fair comparison at all. Cabrera is a onsummate professional on the field, and has apparently made great strides in his personal life as well.

Hamilton -and many other players (and regular joes) have had similar problems. There's something to be said for overcoming an addiction like that. I'm not making excuses for him- and if he were still misbehaving, I'd probably agree with you. But, the fact is, he's done well for the last two full-seasons and has become one of the best 5 players in the game.
