He’ll go down as not only one of the greatest players in Detroit Tigers history but in the game itself. Earlier this week, Miguel Cabrera blasted his 3,000th career hit, joining a select group of past MLB greats to have achieved the mark.
He has one year remaining on his contract after this season, and while he’s in the twilight of his career, Cabrera stated earlier today where he’d like to be spending his time after his playing career ends in an interview with media members from his native Venezuela – and it’s none other than the Motor City.
“Winning in Detroit,” he said. “I think that is the one thing I lack, winning a title in Detroit. I hope I can achieve that in these two years that I have left, or if not, as an assistant, a coach, whatever. I would like to spend more time with this team that has such a bright future. I know that my career is going to end at some point, but I’d like to be involved with the team, a team that has given me a lot. I’d like to share that with them if that is God’s will.”
Miguel Cabrera had a press conference with Venezuelan media this morning. I thought the most interesting part was when spoke about his post-playing aspirations.

Tigers fans, how would you like to see Miggy suiting up as a Tigers assistant coach sometime in the near future?

Just like in other sports, the focal point of your daily fantasy baseball lineups will be your high-salary studs. These guys take up by far the biggest chunk of your cap space, but they also offer the highest ceiling. And in the case of pitchers, the high-salary options typically come with the highest floors, too.
For hitters, we’re looking for guys with big numbers, strong matchups, and with players around them that are likely to produce, as well, increasing our chances for runs and RBI. For pitchers, we want big strikeout numbers, while the ability to go deep in a game and pick up a win is also valuable.
With your high-salary picks playing such a big role in your lineup, you need to be right on these guys, so let’s take a look at a few top-end options you can count on to anchor your lineup today.
