And remember where he finished the overall year ranked in fantasy performance even minus that month. I think as an owner you arent feeling great because you paid a lot for him but you have to ignore this for a while more. I could see benching him until he sparks but cant cut bait by trading low or the like if anyone is an owner. I owned him in one league traded him away for a package just because he was very costly to keep but its not like I am looking back saying thank god I shipped him off (based on his results). I took Trout over him after drawing #1 in an AL league but it wasnt an "easy" call even with the hindsight.

The point was the last time he played this bad it was because of injury...

I haven't heard anything, and in fact I just bought Miggy in my money league. Might have overpaid but oh well, I now own Trout and Cabrera (Gave Harper, J Upton, Shields for Cabrera, Heyward, Blackmon). If Miggy returns back to his MVP form (which I expect him to) then it will look like a great trade for me IMO.


I read/heard that he is swinging with 2 hands this year rather than 1 like in years past. They said it could be because he doesnt have confidence in his hip or that his hip is bothering him because typically a 1 handed swing lets you explode your hips more. I cant remember where I saw that (might have been CBS but I cant recall for sure) and I dont know how legitimate it is so take that how you want.

That may or may not be true. But one of 2 things will happen IMO. Either Miguel Cabrera will begin to tear the cover off the ball very soon, or Miguel Cabrera will do a stint on the 15 day DL and come back and then tear the cover off the ball. I fully expect elite numbers and expect him to fall in the top 5 overall ranking by seasons end... possibly even ranked #1.

He just had a big day today, however, it was against a not so good pitcher.

Not the first not so good pitcher he's faced this year, it's encouraging.

I think Miggy will be fine. Let the weather warm up a bit and give him another week or two before we go full on panic mode.

As expected, he's really picked it up lately.

I just wish he would hit more home runs.

HR could be better but otherwise it's what we've come to expect.
