Can anyone stop Miguel Cabrera from winning another Triple Crown?


Recommended Posts

My newest article with The Outside Corner.  I take an honest look at Cabrera's chances at winning a batting title, home run title and RBI title and who the greatest threats are in each category.  Check it out, it's already got Detroit-homers pissed off.

Correction ice, Miguel Cabrera is the best all-around HITTER in the game right now (and that point is very debatable, Trout hits for the same average, moves runners over more often, scores more runs, steals more bases and hits for similar power.  A stronger case could be made that Cabrera is second to Trout offensively).  As a player, Cabrera is somewhere between AWFUL and TERRIBLE defensively and is somewhere between turtle and snail as far as his ability to run goes. 

 

He's a pure offensive force.  Can't play the field worth a crap, can't run, all he can do is hit.  It's the MVP award, not MVH.  Cabrera's undoubtedly a Silver Slugger.  But as far as players go and overall game, Cabrera's not even Top 5.

Since 17 other guys in the AL have as many or more HRs than him, yes. Some of them are flukes and others will get hurt and fall behind but it would be hard to finish on top of the pile. He'll almost certainly finish in the top 10 and maybe the top 5 but there can be only one.

Maybe if he gets traded to the Angels that will derail his chances

Had that big trade happened for Cabrera we all know Howie Kendrick would have won multiple batting titles for some other team and Cabrera would have turned into an albatross
