Miguel Cabrera

The Chicago White Sox have had some brilliant players play against them in the AL Central Division over the years. In recent memory, none of them were better than Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers. He isn’t the same player in 2020 as he was ten years ago but he will go down as one of the best hitters in the modern era and even all time. Cabrera never did anything rude to the White Sox to make us hate him, it is more of a respect factor to say he made our lives miserable.

He was pretty good with the Florida Marlins early in his career but he bloomed into a future Hall of Fame player with the Tigers. He is a two-time MVP, 11-time all-star, four-time batting title winner, seven-time silver slugger, and a 2003 World Series Champion. In his first MVP season, Miguel Cabrera became the first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to win an offensive triple crown as he led the American League in batting average, home runs, and RBIs.

Cabrera was good against everyone but he made life hard on the White Sox for a very long time. In 188 games against the Sox, he had a slash line of .302/.378/.523. He also had 38 home runs and 119 RBIs. He tormented them for years so having him as an owner would be terrible. He, similar to Alex Rodriguez with the Mets, just wouldn’t look right owning the White Sox because of his career against them.
