Excerpt: "Tuesday's Action"
"Like Hanley Ramirez, Cabrera is playing through injury, although in Cabrera's case, there's plural -- both groin and abdominal concerns that have turned a player already not blessed with speed into a stationary one. Facing almost all fastballs in the postseason, Cabrera is batting .226/.273/.419, and while his two homers have been critical -- one helped win Game Five of the ALDS, the other gave the Tigers a two-run lead in the fateful game on Sunday -- he's a shell of his MVP-caliber self. He's hurting the team at third base, he's unable to use his lower half at the plate, and when on base he's just in the way."
