Default Miguel Cabrera's Triple Crown ALREADY Old News?

I've been watching SportsCenter for I swear the last hour or so and have yet to see even a mention of Cabrera's achievement.

I know Bobby Valentine is the hot topic and there's a football game tonight, but seriously?

That would imply that it was even news to begin with. This is one of the most significant baseball accomplishments of the last 30+ years and the media is shamefully ignoring it. Just pathetic, really.

It would annoy me soooo much back during the summer when half of SportsCenter was coverage on the Jets. And I'm a Jets fan. Don't get me wrong, I like SportsCenter, but it's true, they don't cover the best topics.

I know he won the Triple Crown and all but he wasn't even the best offensive player in his league...

ESPN was asking Leim Neeson questions about the JETS live on the air.

And he had no clue what he was talking about and ended up swearing and wanting a redo, but they couldn't do a redo. They were live.

So ESPN has pretty much lost all credibility accept for Mike and Mike. Everyone else, nope..

Tim Tebow plays a couple of snaps per game and ESPN finds plenty to say about him pretty much every single day. I'm sure they could find something to say about the first triple crown in 45 years if they wanted to. How about having some of their "reporters" interview baseball people (team execs, current and former players, etc.) to get their reaction?

Who cares? He won. He's happy. We're happy (at least the people that matter are). It will be all over the ALDS coverage. It would of course be bigger if that attention whore Jeter had won...just sayin.

How many times can ESPN tell the same story? Cabrera won the triple crown, first time since '67, only batted twice in the game, was removed in the 4th to preserve his average, yada yada yada...you should have known this wasn't going to be the news of the week when it wasn't even the #1 "play" on the Top 10 last night....

I think it is undercovered- maybe part of it is Cabrera isnt an icon like some players. Maybe its because he is in Detroit. I think part of it is the fact that alot of players have come close the last few years. It doesn't seem as incredible to me anymore after Kemp and others have come very close. I think we will see someone else get a Triple Crown very soon again- especially with steroids being weeded out at least among most of the top players, the cream will rise to the top. No more juiced up guys running away with HR's and RBI's.

If Hamilton could stay healthy he'd already have 1 or 2.

Mentally and physically. You're right. He has the tools.

I dont think Hamilton could win the BA, probably the HR/RBI's though

Honestly...I don't think I can handle another one. This race is much more subjective than the NL Cy Young.

He's not very likable. He's a drunk and a wife beater. I think that plays into it.

Thank you for having a massive choking joke of a team this season though. We would all like to thank you guys for that.

I suspect these are all issues that play a much bigger role then some would like to admit... His athletic accomplishments are overshadowed by poor decisions in personal his life.

For whatever reason- some guys get away with it, some don't.
