#2 Hero: Miguel Cabrera
Miguel Cabrera had a more quiet week than his last, but quiet means only one monster moon shot and a batting average 100 points lower than his .500 from his previous week.

Cabrera continued to drill pitching, hitting a team-leading .400 with an OPS of 1.120, a homer, six RBIs. Although he was passed up on the team homer list by our #1 hero, Miggy always seemed to be on base as well, receiving a mix of five intentional and unintentional walks.
Miggy hit a monster shot the other way in Great American Ball Park, a shot that had beat writers on Twitter clamoring that Cincy beat writers had not seen a ball hit that far into the right field seats by a right handed hitter.
Cabrera may turn out to be the All-Star starting first basemen after all. He has been one of the few consistent bright spots for a disappointing Detroit Tigers team through the first three months of the season.
