So anyone watching the game last night, or tuning into the game today knows that Miguel Cabrera, possibly the greatest Tiger of all time, is out for the next six weeks. He doesn’t need surgery, which is good I guess. But he might as well get it. Without him, this season is over.
If the Tigers were in first place by a few games, I might be optimistic about their chances of getting through this. If the Tigers were able to score runs consistently, I would be much more optimistic. But neither is the case. This team has the talent to overcome losing Cabrera, but they have yet to put it together this season. No one can really point to why, but a lot of people are pointing to who: Ausmus.
I won’t get into that today, but I just want to talk about Cabrera and what he means to this team.
