Miguel Cabrera murdered a baseball

Miguel Cabrera faced off against Jonathan Papelbon today. Then this happened:

 

Gotta tell ya, I really think Papelbon wouldn’t have gotten rocked like that if someone in the Phillies clubhouse had shown more leadership. What is Michael Young there for, anyway?

BTW:  Wait until the end of the clip: “is that over the tiki bar??!”  That’s almost as good as “Si or no, motherf***er ??!!”

Baseball is back, folks. It doesn’t count yet, but it’s back.

Andrew Miller placed on the disabled list

UPDATE: The Indians have placed Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

8:46 AM: Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.

Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.

Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
