Tigers Should Have Rested Cabrera More Before Postseason

miguel cabrera [1]What will the Detroit Tigers say about their handling of the physically compromised Miguel Cabrera if they lose to the A’s on Thursday night – or even to the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series?

It’s difficult to know how much Cabrera would have benefited from rest, if at all. His performance, however, suggests that at some point in September, the team should have been more proactive and shut him down for an extended period.

We’ve known for a while now that Cabrera would not return to full health until the offseason. The question is whether the Tigers could have put him in a better position to succeed.
