Miguel Cabrera in Line for Fourth AL Batting Title

From 1985 to 1988, Wade Boggs dominated the American League leaderboards for batting average, winning four consecutive batting titles (he had five for his career). In chronological order, Boggs hit .368, .357, .363, and .366. Pretty impressive. Boggs, also known as “Chicken Man,” is the last player in AL history to amass four or more batting titles. That is, until now. (How did...

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera closing in on 4th batting title in 5 years

While the Detroit Tigers are closing in on the end of a disappointing season, one guy is still playing for something historic. Miguel Cabrera is on the verge of winning his fourth batting title in five years, something very few players have been able to achieve.

Miguel Cabrera blasts umpire after game over ejection

Miguel Cabrera would have had ample reason to be surly after the Detroit Tigers were thrashed 12-1 by the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday. But most of his anger stemmed not from the outcome of the game but how he was ejected in the fourth inning after arguing balls and strikes. The slugger believes his ejection was arbitrary given third-base umpire and crew chief Gary Cederstrom...

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. Anibal Sanchez threw a pickoff throw to first, and Dexter Fowler slide into the bag safely…but Cabrera fumbled his glove off. The ball bounced off a wall by the dugout right to Cabrera, and he fired to second without a glove...

Miguel Cabrera lands on DL for first time in his career

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has been a model of consistently at the plate, and until Friday, he’d been a consistent fixture in the lineup, too. However, Cabrera’s 12-plus year streak of avoiding the disabled list has come to a close. He sustained a leg injury while sprinting to second base as part of a hit-and-run in the bottom of the fourth inning against...
