We can probably stop worrying about third base. Third baseman Nick Castellanos has had himself quite a year. It was just last June when Tigers' manager Brad Ausmus actually had to sit Castellanos down for a few games after a brutal start to the 2015 season. At that point, a demotion to the minor leagues looked pretty likely for the young third baseman. Instead, it marked the beginning...

In this sport, you can always find something new and exciting to watch. But this post isn’t about those expectation defying feats. On the contrary, this post is about the predictable and reliable...
At one point in his career, Miguel Cabrera was the greatest pure hitter in the game -- akin to Manny Ramirez in his prime. He could hit for average and still muscle home runs 450-plus feet, making him an incredibly tough out.Cabrera is still a rare talent, and he put that on full display Monday night against the Seattle Mariners. In the bottom of the first, Cabrera hit a 454-foot...
