Miguel Cabrera played against Vladimir Guerrero Sr. – and recently – Vladdy Jr. Vladito had a nice little series in Motown. Moreover, he has fully sold the future Hall of Famer Miggy.
“He’s going to be better than his dad,” Cabrera said, “because the way he goes out there and has the patience he has. He takes pitches. He hits pitches.”
Miggy saw Vladdy Jr.’s first grand slam of his career, and says he’s on a great path. Now, it’s likely he’s just being clichè; saying all the right things. At the same time, it’s fully possible that he thinks he can mirror his own career.
“Keep playing and keep doing what he’s doing,” Cabrera said. “Because he’s on a good pace to be great.”
Cabrera currently has a .315 lifetime average, and 470 career home runs. An offensive monster, he’s the last player in baseball to take down the Triple Crown Award when he quietly did it in 2012.
