A sometimes-irreverent look at Detroit's Boys of Summer, the Tigers, as they try to return to the top of the American League Central.

Miggy abstains from Tigers' champagne shower

As I surmised when the question came up recently of whether Miguel Cabrera would join in the Detroit Tigers' champagne celebration after they clinched the American League Central, the answer would be self-evident.

Either he would, or he wouldn't. It really wasn't a question that needed to be asked and answered, because it would be on display for all to see, eventually. And it was.

When the FOX Sports Detroit cameras panned around the Tigers' champagne-soaked locker room Friday night almost all the familiar faces from the franchise were evident, from the players to the front office to the training staff.

But Miggy was nowhere to be found.

Oh, he was there. He talked to's Jason Beck for a video, as well as MLIVE's Chris Iott and's C. Trent Rosecrans for their stories.

But by all reports, he was sporting only a bottle of water.

And good for him.

Not that he needs (or wants) my approval. But it's always good to see someone doing well in a battle as hard as dealing with an addiction — especially when you have to do it on a very public stage, as he is.

Like I said before, it was his call. Glad he made it with such ease and grace. Far more satisfying to pass along positive stories, rather than the disappointing ones we started the season with.
