Dec. 5th, 2007 — The Florida Marlins and Detroit Tigers made a trade that sent Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to Detroit for key prospects.

The Tigers sent outfielder Cameron Maybin, pitcher Andrew Miller, catcher Mike Rabelo and minor league pitchers Eulogio De La Cruz, Dallas Trahern and Burke Badenhop to the Marlins.

Sept. 7th, 2012 — Cabrera continues to awe his Tiger teammates with his hitting feat. “He hits them to right field like I hit them to right field,” said Alex Avila, who bats left-handed. “He’s just an amazing all-around hitter. To me, it’s not even a question. He’s the MVP. Listen to the (home) crowd. They’ll tell you.”

Cabrera is tied for the AL batting lead at .330 (he’s the defending champion), is tied for the RBI lead with 116 and is fourth with 35 home runs.

P.S. The Detroit Tigers gave Cabrera an 8-year contract which totals out to $153,000.000, and he’s worth the money.
