Miguel Cabrera is amazing ... let me count the ways, a look at the man behind Detroit's instant replay system, and Henry Aaron is NOT the home run king.

What makes Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera so amazing? Players, coaches chime in
Detroit Free Press, Jeff Seidel

What makes Cabrera so amazing? As if it's possibly to pin that down. I find a new reason to be amazed by him nearly every time he takes the field or picks up a bat. Also, his goofiness. Also, his speed on the basepaths.

Cool, calm, collected ... and also an above-average instant replayer (made that word up).

Don’t diminish Hank Aaron’s greatness by calling him The Home Run King
HardballTalk, Joe Posnanski

Henry Aaron is NOT The Home Run King. That sounds like I’m going to follow with some rant about Barry Bonds breaking his record and how terrible that was … but I’m not.
