These are tough times to be a Tigers’ fan. It’s hard to live in the present with a team so haunted by its past and already looking into an uncertain future. But man, when the Tigers are playing, moments like these make it all worthwhile. It is always a unique pleasure and gift to have Miguel Cabrera on your team.
All the wilder in that Cabrera has been playing hurt, and just hasn’t been able to drive the ball in the air. A sketchy game that had all the makings of a nail in the season’s coffin was suddenly turned to glory. Whatever happens with his team, he’s still plenty capable of mustering some magic in a big spot. Long may he run.
