File this one under news stories you expected to see. Miguel Cabrera, who has been a very productive major league player, said he has quit drinking.
Cabrera made headlines last year when he got drunk and then got in a fight with his wife all as the Tigers were trying to make the playoffs during the last week of the season.
While he’s saying all the right things about quitting the booze I’m not sure his production will improve because of it simply because when you are towards the top at your position or the league the room for improvement isn’t as great.
It’ll be interesting to see what type of numbers Cabrera can produce this year but all indications are another fine season is on the horizon. It’s his image that will need improvement.
