To wrap up Miggy Month, and Miggy's career, we're going to do one final look back at his career. We're going to go over what we consider the top 10 moments of Miguel Cabrera's amazing career.

This is going to be over his entire career, even dating back to his time with the Marlins. Miguel has had so many cool and legendary moments throughout his career. It's only fair we go back to where it all started.

Here are the top 10 moments of Miguel Cabrera's career

10. Getting a hit while being intentionally walked — June 22, 2006

If you want to get an idea of just how smart of a player Miggy is — and how crazy his bat-to-ball skills are — look no further than when he hit a go-ahead RBI single off a pitch way off the plate when the Orioles were trying to put him on first base.

Orioles pitcher Todd Williams was trying to intentially walk Cabrera, but he left one too close to the plate. This allowed Miggy to just stick his bat out and flick it into center field for the go-ahead score.

This is just a crazy thing to see. You didn't see a whole lot of players do this back when pitchers actually had to throw four pitches off the plate for the intentional walk. Most players just took their free base, but not Miggy. Even at 23 years old, he wasn't here to mess around.

Williams just lobs this pitch over, and it moves kind of like a knuckleball. To have the patience and the wherewithal to just stay back and take a rip at it was something only Miggy could do.
