3. Arizona Diamondbacks — Vacation
A guitar, a painting of a memorable home run, and a subway sign are cool and all, but an all-expense paid vacation? Now THAT is a retirement gift.
The D'backs were kind enough to give Miggy a vacation at Talking Stick Resort and Casino in Scottsdale, Arizona as their gift to him when they visted Comerica Park back in June. Just like the Yankees, they also made a $10,000 donation to his foundation.
This seems like a really neat place. It looks quite luxurious as well. The perfect retirement gift, if we say so ourselves.
The D'backs weren't the only team to give Miggy a vacation. The Rockies gave him a two-night stay at The Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs as part of their gift. Miggy is going to have plenty of time to relax and unwind following his retirement, and now he can travel to do so.
So while much of the attention has gone on the bad gifts, like the A's the other night, there have been quite a few well-thought out gifts as well. Cabrera will have plenty of things to enjoy after he rides off into the sunset.
