07:09 AM ET 08.15 | Particularly over the past few seasons, there have been any number of glowing adjectives used to describe Miguel Cabrera. The best way to describe him on Wednesday? Some combination of unbelievable/amazing/incredible, sure. But also gimpy. "No, he's not OK," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Wednesday morning when asked about Cabrera, who was in the lineup despite being seen hobbling in the 11th inning of Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the White Sox. Cabrera has been slowed by an abdominal strain for about three weeks, a span in which he's missed seven games. ... Despite the pain, Cabrera is still hitting. He smacked his 38th home run of the season in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the White Sox, a three-run shot to tie the game, and finished the 10-game road trip with six homers and 15 RBIs.

Don't care that the Prince hits behind him why do pitchers pitch to this guy with men on base in close games?

Very true , I will take an injured Cabrera over any healthy player in baseball... And yes even over Trout.. The media wants to push Trout as the face of baseball but he is not in the same league as Cabrera with the bat.

The man is a hitting machine.

This has to be the best trade any team has made in the last decade. Even with taking Willis as part of the trade, Detroit has to like what has come from that trade. Anyone even remember the prospects they gave up? Does anyone even care?

trout is a more complete player. but hitting wise there's no comparison -- Cabrera is tops

Unlike many others, I'll give the guy benefit of the doubt. He hasn't failed one yet. So let it be.
