10/18: Night OT, NFL And Most Importantly: The Miggs Celebration Thread

José Miguel Cabrera Torres (born April 18, 1983), commonly known as Miguel Cabrera, and nicknamed "Miggy", "Cabby" and "Big Cat", is a Venezuelan Major League Baseball third baseman for the Detroit Tigers. He bats and throws right-handed. He has also played first base, left field, right field and designated hitter. He is a seven-time All-Star, having been selected to the National League All-Star Team in2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007, and also the American League All-Star Team in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Cabrera has started at least 100 games at first base, third base, left field and right field.[1] He progressed through the Florida Marlins minor-league system, before being called up from the Double-A Carolina Mudcats in June 2003. Cabrera went on to help the Florida Marlins win the World Series that year as their clean-up hitter.

Cabrera is widely regarded to be one of the best pure hitters in baseball, hitting at a high average with power to all fields. He has posted at least 30 home runs in eight different seasons with a career batting average of .318. Cabrera has also driven in over 100 runs in each of the last 9 seasons, every season aside from his rookie campaign when he played in only 87 games. He has been an MVP caliber player since entering the majors at just 20 years old, having received MVP votes in each of his nine major league seasons, and placing in the top five in the last three. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starting pitcher Dan Haren is quoted saying, "You're going to make good pitches, and [Cabrera] is going to hit them."

In 2012, Cabrera became the first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to win the Triple Crown. Cabrera led the American League with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs, and 139 RBIs.
