Miguel Cabrera was looked devastated on television when reporters interviewed him after the game. Once the cameras left, he might’ve been even worse.
He sounded like he was blaming the loss on himself.
“I don’t know what to say right now,” Cabrera said. “I feel bad.”
It was difficult to make out what he was saying because he was so emotional, so it was hard to tell if he was blaming his hitting — later in the game after his double and two-run homer in his first two at-bats — or his run-in with authorities Saturday becoming a distraction.
Still, it sounded like he was ready to move on. Asked if he might spend his offseason getting his life in order, Cabrera seemed to agree.
“Yeah, I think I’m going to,” Cabrera said, trying to find the term.
Right now, though, he’s going to go through a pretty tough time.
“It’s very tough, very tough,” Cabrera said. “It’s a very tough loss.”
At that point, Cabrera broke down.
