After he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Friday night in a 6-0 loss, Miguel Cabrera made it clear that he needed to work on the mechanics of his swing.

Detroit Tigers links: Trust Dave Dombrowski, Miguel Cabrera's chase of history and more

Grantland.com has an extensive look at Dombrowskis front-office success and offers it as evidence of why you cant question the Doug Fister trade or the Miguel Cabrera extension. In Dave Dombrowksi, Detroit Tigers fans must trust.Most probably wouldn't have blinked at that line before the last six months, but a couple moves (Doug Fister trade, Miguel Cabrera extension) have left at least some questioning the team's president/general manager.But Dombrowski's past — how do those trades that acquired Fister and Cabrera, among others, look now? — is the reason you...

It's hard to tell what was more exceptional on Friday night at Petco Park: the complete-game one-hitter by San Diego right-hander Andrew Cashner in his 6-0 victory or this post-game comment by Miguel Cabrera: 'I'm not swinging good right now,' Cabrera said. 'My mechanics aren't the way they were before.'

Miguel Cabrera projects to be one of the game's all-time greatest

Miguel Cabrera projects to be one of the game's all-time greatest

Just for fun, let's compare him to one of the best hitters in history. On April 13, 1954, Henry "Hank" Aaron made his major league debut with the Milwaukee Braves as a 20-year-old kid. He had come up as a shortstop, playing there in the Negro Leagues, but began his career as a tall, lanky left fielder who hadn't quite grown into his frame. He would go 0-for-5 on that day. On June 20, 2003, Miguel Cabrera made his major league debut with the Florida Marlins, also as a 20-year-old kid. He too had come up through the minor leagues as a shortstop and he too began his career as a tall, lanky...
