Cabrera to bat cleanup for AL All-Stars

Rekindling memories of the debate over which spot in the batting order is best for Miguel Cabrera, AL All-Star manager John Farrell put Cabrera in the cleanup spot for tomorrow night’s Midsummer Classic. He batted third in his other two All-Star starts.

Cabrera will have Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista batting behind him for protection.

Here’s the full lineup:

  1. Derek Jeter, SS
  2. Mike Trout, LF
  3. Robinson Cano, 2B
  4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  5. Jose Bautista, RF
  6. Nelson Cruz, DH
  7. Adam Jones, CF
  8. Josh Donaldson, 3B
  9. Salvador Perez, C

P: Felix Hernandez



that’s quite a starting crew they got there – go get ’em boys!

My how Dan Uggla has fallen off since that 5 year extension he was given (post trade with marlins)!

The entire thing sounds strange to me . From All-Star to bench player to a suspension …..Gotta be more to this story .

“Boras on Scherzer contract decision in hindsight: “You’re always the village idiot until the player is outside the village.”
Whatever that means

Detroit is the village and when Max leaves Detroit, he will no longer be thought of as a village idiot (for not taking all that money). I’m pretty sure that is what the comment refers to.

one of the best days of year…. summer classic! AL boys are going to show up and go to work. That Jeter commercial has so much hype for him as well, excited to see what kind of tribute and reaction from his peers he gets. Not a Yankee fan at all I’m sure like all of us but respect the game and the man named Jeter who has carried himself the right way over the years. Reading Captain right now as this time seems fitting with all star game and will be in attendance in August to see Jeter one last time…..
