Miguel Cabrera took exception in the first inning to some chin music from Cleveland Indians’ starter, Trevor Bauer. While the pitch wasn’t that bad, Cabrera wasn’t having it. Indians’ manager Terry Francona compounded matters with some choice words from the dugout. In the fifth inning, Cabrera made them pay with a patented laser into the right field seat.
This sequence of events is known as “setting a tone.” Were you worried about Miguel Cabera?
