Sadly, Miguel Cabrera just got his 37th homer, going ahead of TCQ's 36 to lead the league. I was hoping TCQ could keep the lead despite missing the last month. Oh well. :(:

who would have thought just a year ago that Carlos Quentin, Miguel Cabrera, and even Cliff Lee, for the sake of argument,would be the new faces of their respective organizations?

Quentin and Lee are quite surprising. Cabrera hardly so.

It took the final weekend of the year to overthrow him .... damn.

AL HR#s way down this year.

And pitching is up and ERAs are lower. I hope this trend continues.

:lol:

That being said, after his slow start he really turned in a heck of a year. .294/37/127

This is why I'm confident that the Commissioner's Trophy will remain in the AL. Even the Mariners and Royals can win the World Series against anything the NL sends up.

Not quite.... but then again considering the best team in the NL by a long way is the Flubs....

And Cliff Lee is coming off of a career year at the age of 30. I wouldn't look at his season as any more than that. The Indians can't expect anything close to that next year.

You know, he does look thinner. I wouldn't knock on fat people either. I don't see people knocking David Ortiz or Prince Fielder for it :scratch:

People, in great numbers THIS YEAR, have been knocking BOTH for it.

I don't know. Cabrera is in the AL, so as long as the DH will be around, his career will probably be extended 3 or 4 more years than it would've in the NL.

Its hard to think he once looked like this:

To be honest, he could be alot fatter.

Was he a decent defensive third baseman before he found the stash of snacks left behind by Chris Shelton?*









*Yes, I know Cabrera was already a lard-butt before the trade - I just felt like mentioning "Babe" Shelton...:cool:
