Miguel Cabrera’s possible Triple Crown is not getting enough attention? Really?

Jon Heyman today:

Specifically in this case, Cabrera’s amazing Triple Crown chase isn’t getting the attention it deserves. The Triple Crown hasn’t been achieved for 45 years, so we know it isn’t easy. Sure, he’s getting some press and a fair amount of praise. But not nearly enough in my estimation.

Cabrera’s chase deserves a much greater spotlight than it’s receiving

Carl Yastrzemski, last week:

“In `67, the Triple Crown was never even mentioned once,” Yastrzemski said Wednesday night. “We were so involved in the pennant race, I didn’t know I won the Triple Crown until the next day, when I read it in the paper.”

I dunno, if the coverage was good enough for Yaz, it’s good enough for Cabrera.

Not that you haven’t heard about Cabrera, right?
