Column: Miguel Cabrera's milestone at age 32 is impressive accomplishment for 'special' player

It makes sense when fans are in awe of how good a baseball player is. But if one truly wants to see how good Cabrera is, talk to another talented major leaguer. Talk to Victor Martinez. ST. LOUIS -- Victor Martinez hasn't seen a ton of growth in Miguel Cabrera as a hitter since the two became Detroit Tigers teammates in 2011. "When I came here," Martinez said with a grin, "he was already a man." But Martinez remembers playing winter ball in a game with Cabrera was just a teenager. Cabrera played like a man then, too. Thousands of players have taken the field in...

Tigers 4, Cardinals 3: Miguel Cabrera makes history in wild victory

Miguel Cabrera opened the scoring and made history at the same time in the first inning, hitting his 400th...
