    Not sure if we have any baseball fans here but this accomplishment is something that is truly special. The first triple crown winner since 1967(45 years)! When I think of all the people who have played the game in that amount of time it really helps put it into perspective for me.

    What a season for the big man 44 HR, 139 RBI and a .330 average! The KC players and fans showed a lot of respect for Cabrera tonight with the standing ovation, classy move in my opinion!

    I felt the Tigers have under achieved all season long so heres to hoping they turn it around in the playoffs! ;lol

    Congrats to Miguel Cabrera on a truly rare accomplishment. Kudos to him for staying in the manager's office during the Tigers' Celebration & avoiding (HIS demon & MINE) alcohol. Smart move.

    being a NYY fan i havent followed the tigers that closely, but i found myself down the stretch rooting for him to win the triple crown. from all accounts he's a very gracious guy and well liked throughout the league (unless youre pitching against him i guess). kudo's to him and a pat on the back to fielder who protected him in the order giving him cover to get more pitches to hit. (part of the game strategy) i hear "yaz" called and congratulated him on the accomplishment, showing the class he has oozing out of him as well.

    good for him, good for the game!

    That must be fun!


    I work with some people that aren't impressed with Fielder, yeah .313 average, 30HR and 108 RBI hitting behind Miggy, yep looks like he's a bum! I tried to explain to them Fielder made it possible for Miggy to win the triple crown but they just don't get it. :rolleyes:

    Without getting into specifics, sometimes it is!

    well, having a big dangerous bat behind a solid hitter is always good for both, ya dont walk the one guy so the other can hit a 2 run dinger afterwards. look back at when boston was really strong , they had big papi hitting behind manny ramirez, now papi is still dangerous but after manny left papi's numbers kinda dipped. not because he wasnt just as good a hitter, but because pitchers could pitch around him easier without as big a bat behind him.so papi doesnt see as many "plump" pitches to hit.

    Exactly the reason that Roger Maris received ZERO intentional walks in '61. The Mick was on deck...
