Miguel Cabrera told a Venezuelan newspaper that he’s moving to third base to accommodate the Detroit Tigers‘ newest slugger, first baseman Prince Fielder. MLB.com, citing an unnamed source, reported that the Tigers only agreed to sign the former Milwaukee Brewers first baseman after it talked to Cabrera first and received his approval.
So at first base we’re going to have Prince Fielder who clocks in at 275 lbs. At third base we have Miguel Cabrera who tips the scales at 240 lbs. That’s a joke. Miguel Cabrera is 240 in his bra. That brings us to a total of 515 lbs on the corners. Those are some big boys. The question is; what will those scales say in a couple years? Detroit just got big, real big!
