Miguel Cabrera knocks in 100th run, joins exclusive club

Aug 19, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer off Phil Hughes on Tuesday to reach 100 RBI for the seventh straight season. He’s one of just six players to drive in 100 runs seven times through age 27:
Mel Ott – 8 (1929-1936)
Miguel Cabrera – 7 (2004-2010)
Joe DiMaggio – 7 (1936-1942)
Jimmie Foxx – 7 (1929-1935)
Albert Pujols – 7 (2001-2007)
Alex Rodriguez – 7 (1996-2003)
Ott, Foxx, DiMaggio, Pujols and now Cabrera are also the only players to drive in 100 runs in every season from ages 21-27. Ott also had 151 RBI in his age 20 season.
A-Rod had 123 RBI at age 20, but he followed that with his worst year to date, finishing with 84 RBI at age 21.
Since he got started so young, Cabrera could well establish several RBI records over the course of his career. Unfortunately for him, Rodriguez figures to beat him to some or most of them.
With 97 RBI so far this year, A-Rod is about to turn in his 14th 100-RBI season. He’s currently tied with Foxx, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth for the most all-time at 13.

    Well, all I can say is, thank Buddha that Scrooge McLoria unloaded this deadbeat Cabrera before he had to pay him what he was worth. “The House that Cabrera Built” would not only have had to be smaller to compensate for the big payday. As it stands, when that grotesque monstrosity, Macondo Banana Massacre Field, finally opens its maw, there’ll be maybe ten or so Feesh fans left by then thanks to the flurry of “market corrections” (one of the Chihuahua’s most famous bon mots) like the dump of Cabrera that has reduced this team to such mediocrity.

    He is going to celebrate with some beers and insults for fat kids.
    Guy can play though.
