Miguel Cabrera is the Detroit Tigers' offense

The Tigers rank among the top teams in baseball in several offense categories all because of Miguel Cabrera. Miguel Cabrera is a Hall of Fame caliber baseball player. There's no denying it at this point. The 32-year-old first baseman is well on his way to Cooperstown, and nothing short of a career-ending injury or major scandal will keep him out of baseball's most hallowed club. In all likelihood, his bust will be adorned with a Detroit Tigers cap, the ninth such player in MLB history. What if he were not around, though? The Tigers got a brief taste of life without Miggy earlier this...

Nats Journal: How Jonathan Papelbon is staying busy with little work since trade

When the Nationals acquired closer Jonathan Papelbon in a July 28 trade, they were two games up in the National League East race with an obvious need to upgrade the bullpen. Since the trade, the Nationals are 11-16 and haven’t needed Papelbon much because of the types of games they have played.Read full article >>

With Pineda, Yankees’ rotation the strongest it’s been all season

The Yankees’ rotation returns to full strength today. In fact, this is probably the strongest the rotation has been all year. With Michael Pineda ready to come off the disabled list, the Yankees have their five best starting pitchers in place. Had Ivan Nova not crumbled in the first inning last night, all five would […] The post With Pineda, Yankees’ rotation the strongest it’s been all season appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Nats Journal: How Stephen Strasburg dominated again Tuesday night

After Tuesday night’s 8-3 win over the San Diego Padres, Nationals Manager Matt Williams was talking about Stephen Strasburg’s latest dominant outing and tossed out a number. “He had 12 strikeouts or something like that,” said Williams, who overshot by five strikeouts. When Strasburg pitches like Strasburg, he hits double-digit strikeouts regularly. Tuesday, as in his other August starts, Strasburg looked like his old self again — dominant and decisive — but strikeouts did not pile up as they normally do.Read full article >>

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera has no problem pulling a teammate aside and telling him to shape up if he sees a lack of effort or hustle on or off the field. But he hasn't had to do it this season. Speaking to reporters for the first time since his snippy comments Sunday, Cabrera made it clear Tuesday night that the team's mounting losses aren't the result of a lack of preparation. "I want...

Cabrera has not played first base on three consecutive days at any point since returning from the disabled list Aug. 14 after missing six weeks with a Grade 3 left calf strain. DETROIT -- Brad Ausmus said he does not have a set schedule in mind when it comes to who plays first base. But his goal for the remainder of the season will be to have Miguel Cabrera play there more and to have Victor Martinez play there less. Ausmus had Cabrera as the designated hitter and Martinez at first base tonight in the series opener against the Los Angeles Angels. It sounds...

Detroit Tigers links: Miguel Cabrera doesn't care about his 'best season ever'

Miguel Cabrera's expletive-laden outburst illustrates that he only cares about winning. Pitching and injuries have been the easily explainable scapegoats for the Detroit Tigers' lost season. What has been more difficult to explain is the inconsistent run scoring that has plagued the Tigers despite leading the AL in numerous batting categories. The Detroit media has a job to do, and, on Sunday, they understandably questioned the team about a 3rd straight poor showing. Miguel Cabrera, who is having one of his best seasons of his career, had reached his limit with the questions about the...
