Miguel Cabrera has the playoffs and the triple crown in his sights.

When he entered the majors barely a twenty-year old with the Florida Marlins, Miguel Cabrera has always been mentioned as a potential MVP candidate. After five seasons with the Marlins Cabrera was traded to the Detroit Tigers where he has become the cornerstone of a Tigers franchise that is looking to be more than just a player in this year’s postseason.
