Joaquin Benoit is in the best shape of his ... wait, what?

Pitchers and catchers reported today. You already knew that. According to our favorite beat writers, nothing has happened. A light game of catch, maybe. Justin Verlander is off to find a golf course. And Miguel Cabrera is in the best shape of his life. (Who am I, Craig Calcaterra?)

The AP hasn't moved any photos of Cabrera, so I couldn't use anything in the post. But if you scoot on over to the Detroit News or Free Press, you'll find stories on Cabrera, as well as photos of him playing catch in the fog. He's like some sort of Cabrera monster coming to attack the baseball. Or something. But OK, he's not actually in the best shape of his life. He just 'trying to be' in the best shape of his life. So there is that.

Meanwhile, as you can see from this photo, Joaquin Benoit may not actually be in the best shape of his life. Maybe it's the camera angle. ... Yeah, it's probably not the camera angle.
