    Miguel Cabrera / Hank Aaron comparison

    Not saying he will reach the level that Aaron did, but this is a pretty crazy stat line. (sorry this pic won't embed)

    Re: Miguel Cabrera / Hank Aaron comparison

    I'm torn on arguments like this comparing players from different generations.

    Aaron played with lesser equipment, but Cabrera has faced better pitching.

    Agreed it's always hard to make these comparisons but those numbers are crazy close!

    For sure. Was Hank arguably the best hitter of his time? Sure. Is Miggy arguably the best hitter of his time? Sure.

    I don't know about the comparison but I'm confident in saying Miguel Cabrera is the best RH hitter in this generation.

    Why do you think Cabrera has faced better pitching? For about the first 14 years of Aaron's career he faced pitchers who had a higher mound: an advantage no longer present. I mean this as a legit question.

    I think it's an accurate comparison at the plate. In the field they're miles apart.

    Re: Miguel Cabrera / Hank Aaron comparison

    Maybe it's just because I don't follow baseball but doesn't it seem like Cabrera flies under the radar? It seems like i hear much more about other guys.


    It's all snark from here on out

    The theory, at least by the Detroit media, is his failure to master English. His failure to speak English very well hurts his public image - he's not a very good interview, and he doesn't endorse many products, at least not to mainstream America. As good of a player as he is, his image simply isn't sellable, which is why he flies under the radar.

    I'm only 29, so I the oldest Braves I remember are Glavine and Sid Bream, but my impressions of Aaron were that he flew under the radar as well, and just put up really good, but not great seasons, for a very long time. The numbers just added up after a while.

    Aaron played into his 40s. There is no way Cabrera makes it there unless he significantly changes how he treats his body.

    This. He looks like the Big Cat Andres Galaraga.
