He's still only 27 years old, and Baseball-Reference's similar batters through Age 27 are:
|Miguel Cabrera keeps Rare Company|
Hank Aaron (928) *
Ken Griffey (922)
Hal Trosky (891)
Mickey Mantle (884) *
Albert Pujols (883)
Orlando Cepeda (879) *
Al Kaline (870) *
Andruw Jones (862)
Joe Medwick (861) *
(*) signifies Hall of Famer
Figuring that Ken Griffey, Jr and Albert Pujols will be Hall of Famers, that makes eight out of ten. Andruw Jones has a chance to make it in, and Hal Trosky was a great young player who was basically finished when he was 28.
I've been a big Miguel Cabrera fan since his amazing debut as a 20-year old. Looking at the names in the list above also doesn't just shout "Hall of Fame", these are Small Hall guys. Henry Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Griffey Jr, Pujols, Kaline: All Time Heroes.
Keep your nose clean, MiggyCab. When you and the Tigers head back to Motown, maybe you can ask Eminem for some advice.
