Miguel Cabrera is officially in the lineup for tonight's game against KC:

Looks like the start time is 8:10:

Hopeful signs: Cabrera is at .331, Trout seven points back. Hamilton needs two homers to tie Cabrera. Both players will have wrapped up their games before the Tigers commence play, so we will know where we stand. 

Do your commenting, hopefully celebrating, here. Updates, shifting percentages and tallies all appreciated, since I will be wrapped up with an eight-year-old who likes to go to bed at midnight, only looking in from time to time.

Granderson can still catch Cabby in  HR's. He just homered off Dice-K. If yankees play game 163 against the Orioles, then any HR's Grandy bombs would count for his regular season stats too. So we may not know the triple crown untill tommorow.

That was Grandy's 42 HR. Cano also just homered so looking more and more like there will be no game 163 to decide the AL East.

the last day of the regular season is always so muh fun? With 161 games down today should just be for show. This is the second yeat in a row we have been entertained up until the end. I will admit its not as great as last year.

I don't know if Trout will get his chance. He seems to be having a season similar to Bosch's, just is more talented than Bosch so his descent isn't as obvious and his peak was higher.

There have been some rumors about the Tigers making a play for Hamilton too. If NHL loses the season, maybe Mr Illitch throws more money into the Tigs. They have always been his favorite, and the Wings were second choice when he couldn't buy the Tigs. Think of that: Hamilton-Cabrera-Prince-Vmart. That 3-6 would be filthy. And all the offense would be better.

Yankees and Red Sox games are painful to watch. They need to find a way to speed this shit up. Both teams love to spend more time kicking dirt around and doing anything other than, you know, actually playing baseball.
