Miguel Cabrera to miss the Mariners' series

May 24, 2010, 5:12 PM EDT

miguel cabrera headshot tigers.jpgMiguel Cabrera ain’t hurt, he’s just becoming a daddy for the second time and will be in Florida for the birth of his second child, Jason Beck reports. Couple of thoughts:

  • If you have to be without your best hitter for a couple of game, being without him for a series against the Mariners is probably the best case scenario;
  • For all of the obvious reasons I’m happy that Cabrera committed himself to fitness and sobriety after his unfortunate behavior last fall, the fact that he’s doing it as he’s becoming a father again is the best one I can imagine. Being a dad is hard enough. Doing it through a haze is damn nigh impossible; and
  • When I first saw this today I only saw “M. Cabrera to miss series due to birth of child,” thought it was Melky, and immediately thought “Great! It’s addition by subtraction by multiplication!”  Alas, the wrong Cabrera;

Anyway, early congrats on the new Cabrera.

    “When I first saw this today I only saw “M. Cabrera to miss series due to birth of child,” thought it was Melky, and immediately thought “Great! It’s addition by subtraction by multiplication!”
    LOL I thought the same thing…and if you can explain to me why Bobby Cox is not starting Hinske until he proves he can’t hit .370, I’d be eternally grateful and even encourage my kid to name my next grandchild after you, even if it’s a girl.
    Cox even pinch hit for Hinske with Glaus on Saturday with a just-brought-in right handed reliever after Hinske had already hit a home run in a prior at bat. I know I don’t have to remind you that Hinske is left handed and Glaus is right handed.
    Just boggles the mind.
