Re-bump. Dude didn't even have a hit yesterday.
Miguel Cabrera had 3 more RBI last night, and now has 52 RBI. First Tiger with 50+ RBI in first 44 games since Hank Greenberg in 1937. Greenberg finished with 183 (in 154 games) that season for the Tigers record. Had Greenberg had that pace in a 162 game season, he would have finished with 192-193 RBI (assuming he played all 162). Cabrera's pace right now is at 191-192 (in 162 games - assuming he plays all 162).
The MLB record is 191 by Hack Wilson in 1930. He did that in 155 games. Had he taken that pace to 162, we're looking at 199-200 RBI. The AL record is 184 but Lou Gehrig in 155 games, streatch that out to 162 games and Gehrig would have hit 191-192. That was set in 1931
So Cabrera, beyond the BA, HR, and other amazing numbers might be on the verge of something truly historic with the RBI totals. We're talking 70-80 year old records that survived the Steroid Era. MLB hasn't seen a 170 RBI man since Jimmy Foxx in 1938. Closest anyone got to that was Sosa's 160 in 2001 and ManRam's 165 in 1998
It's something worth tracking/keeping an eye on.
When will the train wreck end???
If it keeps going a few more season longer as fast as it is....it will end in a heap of bronze in left field of Comerica Park.
Will that heap of bronze have an eye patch?

Hank Greenburg also had 50 RBI's in 44 games in 1935 when he became the first player in MLB to have 100 RBI's prior to the All Star game. Ended up with 170 for the year.
The ASG this season is July 16. To get to 100, Cabrera would need 48 RBI. The Tigers have exactly 50 games before the ASG.
At his current RBI per game pace, and assuming Miggy plays in all 50 games, he would have 111 RBI at this year's ASG.
Of course, in 1935 the ASG was played on July 8th, and Greenberg had only played 76 games to that point. He had 103 RBI in 76 games...That's amazing, especially considering he had only 2 in his first 10 games.
At Cabrera's current pace, in 76 games, he'll have 90.
Greenberg was not on that year's all star team (probably because of Lou Gehrig and Jimmy Foxx being more popular players and both playing 1B.
Saw him strike out last night, very poor AB.
Now on pace for 201 RBIs.

HR to LF, RBI 60 & 61
Grand slam bump.
A man's gotta eat!
I'm gonna be pissed if we can't re-sign him because we are paying Prince's fat ass 25 million a year and Verlander 30. Re-signing him would mean 3 players are making a combined 80 million

No talent waste of space only has 17 HR and 65 RBI....
ON JUNE FIRST
Re-sign him? Didn't he get an extension before last season?
On pace for 51 HR and 195 RBI
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
No his contract is up after the 2015 season. So we'd probably have to sign him next year to an extension
