    Miguel Cabrera's health leaves a dark cloud over Tigers' pennant push

What we know is a superstar who has won three consecutive batting championships and who bashed 44 home runs in each of the past two seasons is today batting .300 with 17 home runs. He has not been right for months. His swings have been uncharacteristically off-key. His power has all but vanished to the left-side pull field. His strikeouts have mounted.

    This season's most valuable players must be living in La-La-Land

    The words are most valuable player. Simple words. MVP the annual vote fest that so frequently provides contentiousness, contrariness and controversy on the previously noted media outlets. Some years the speculation approaches bloodshed.
