  • Miguel Cabrera and the Triple Crown

    15 games left.

    His line right now is:

    BA - .333
    HR - 40
    RBI - 129

    He leads BA by 4 points and RBI by 6.

    The only thing he trails is HR, by 2 (Hamilton; 42).

    Can Cabrera pull it off? It hasn't been done since 1967, and I hope to see it happen in my lifetime.

      This has to be the quietest Triple Crown run ever. I didn't even know Cabrera was that close. I hope he does it, though!

        I hope so too. I also hope he gets the recognition he deserves. He is the best hitter in baseball, and I still feel hes underrated. Maybe thats just me though.

          Likewise, I had no idea. He has a legitimate shot at it, hope he makes it.

            I also want to see one in my lifetime. I am not being pessimistic, but I do not think he will make it. I think Hamilton or Dunn will edge him out in home runs.

              Edwin Encarnacion also has 40 HRs...that was pretty quiet, too. But, he hasn't played since the 15th and I wonder if he might be out for a while with nagging injuries.

                It's quite a season when 3 players from the same league have been legitimate Triple Crown threats. Josh Hamilton (until his BA slipped), Mike Trout (not quite in the mix with HR's) and now Cabrera with the best shot of the three. It's going to come down to the last few games...should be fun to watch! 2012 American League Batting Leaders

                    Am definitely in agreement that he's the best hitter in the game right now, although I think it'll be hard to best Hamilton in HRs at this juncture. I also think Joe Mauer could still be considered a favorite to win the batting title, as he's only eight points behind the leader with two weeks to go. Miggy's probably got the R'sBI title locked in, though.

                      Another HR tonight. Just 1 HR behind Hamilton right now.

                      Cabrera may really do it.

                      I don't think Trout is catching his batting average, nor do I think Hamilton will catch his RBI total.

                        Hamilton is also injured.
                        The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                          As usual. The commonality between Hamilton and Mickey Mantle is almost uncanny.

                            And if his bat leads the Tigers to a playoff berth, even sweeter.
