About that bloody knee for Cabrera

Unless you’ve been overseas or asleep for two months, you know that Miguel Cabrera has been hitting through bumps and bruises this summer. Thursday was the first time this year that he has been bloodied.

He was wearing it on his right knee, and as he stepped to the plate in the sixth inning, the red stain on his pant leg was impossible to miss, especially after the Tigers broadcast ran a close-up of it. Somebody in the Tigers dugout noticed it soon after that, and head athletic trainer Kevin Rand was spotted talking with Cabrera in the seventh inning. Cabrera came back out to third base in the eighth wearing a clean set of pants.

After the game, Cabrera was at his locker in the clubhouse putting a bandage on his knee. He said he had a scab on his knee that opened up when he dove earlier in the game, possibly on Doug Bernier’s sixth-inning single that reflected off his glove and then past Jose Iglesias at short.

Cabrera also agreed that it was gross.

Austin Jackson: lean & clean or down & dirty?
Which would you prefer?
Yes he did hit a big 3 run HR.
Why is there a disconnect on this team between any comeback offense and a bullpen that doesn’t seem to be able to be part of the enthusiasm?

poor guy has been beat up most of season, wish they would sit him down this weekend. This series means nothing.
