No Red Sox, No Evil Ones On AL All-Star Squad

There was a time when the American League All-Star team was peppered with pinstripes and Carmine Hose. For example, ten years ago, in 2005, Alex Rodriguez joined Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Johnny Damon and Jason Varitek as All-Star starters. No longer. Not one AL starter in next week's Midsummer Classic will hail from Boston or New York (even though Mark Teixeira is filling the injured Miguel Cabrera's roster spot, Albert Pujols will start at 1B). Signs and wonders.

Detroit Tigers links: The Tigers are in big trouble without Miguel Cabrera

Six weeks without a Hall of Famer in the lineup is a daunting task, but the Tigers' lackluster pitching will ultimately be their downfall. The Detroit Tigers won two of three in their weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays without Miguel Cabrera, but there were some serious warning signs that this team won't be able to withstand his absence. Losing a Hall of Fame talent like Cabrera is a huge blow to their playoff hopes, which have already dropped to 30.1 percent according to Fangraphs. Lynn Henning of the Detroit News outlined what the offense needs to do in order to stay afloat...

Twinsights: Twins won't lament Miguel Cabrera's first-ever DL stint

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Detroit Tigers are without Miguel Cabrera, the two-team American League Most Valuable Player, due to a strained left calf that has sent him to the disabled list for the first time in his career. Twins manager Paul Molitor, whose team will close the first half with a four-game home series against the four-time reigning AL Central champions, had not heard the six-week projection for Cabrera’s absence. Does a high-profile injury to a division rival like Cabrera resonate in the Twins’ clubhouse? “I don’t know what each guy would think of that,” Molitor said....

The Tigers should not trade for Ryan Howard, so stop asking

Yes, Miguel Cabrera is hurt, but we shouldn't lose our minds here. Miguel Cabrera will be out of action for at least six weeks with a Grade 3 left calf strain, which leaves a massive hole in the middle of the Detroit Tigers lineup. Sure, they are still a talented bunch; Victor Martinez, Yoenis Cespedes, J.D. Martinez, and Ian Kinsler make up a very productive core. However, the Tigers will likely look outside the organization to add a cheap bat at the trade deadline to help offset Cabrera's absence. That bat is not Ryan Howard. Sure, it may sound like a good idea. Howard is a former...

How much will the Tigers offense suffer without Miguel Cabrera?

Losing Miguel Cabrera will hurt the Tigers, but can we quantify how much? There's really only one thing I can say in response to the news that the Tigers have lost Miguel Cabrera to the disabled list for several weeks, but that thing is incredibly obscene and should not be printed. The Tigers have been struggling to play break-even .500 baseball, July is already marching towards August, and now there's a very real possibility the team could miss the playoffs completely this year. The doom cloud is real, and it is impressive. Some people are even asking whether the Tigers ought to chuck it...
