#3: Miggy Gets Another Batting Title

As in another Triple Crown. This is my wish list and I’d love to see one of the best players to ever swing a bat get another Triple Crown. It would only cement his standings and add to the legend that is the Mighty Miggy.

Just imagine what it would be like to watch Miguel Cabrera go on a season-long batting streak – again. He has never hit more than 44 home runs and he has never scored over 112 runs in a season. Why not do it in 2017?

The Detroit Tigers were ready and willing to trade him away to the highest offer. But, the Tigers kept him. So, it would be kind of him to show the Tigers that it was worth it to keep him around for another season of $28 million.  Winning another Triple Crown would also be a nice way to show that he is worth the $30 million he’ll get in 2018.
