DETROIT - This week’s cover of Sports Illustrated will have Detroit sports fans buzzing.
The cover features Major League Baseball’s latest dynamic duo: Tigers “Bash Bros” Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder.
The feature story comes at a time when Cabrera finally seems to be getting the media attention he deserves, but Fielder on the hand, seems to by going under the radar in his 2013 campaign.
It seems as if that will no longer be the case after this week, though.
The two sluggers have combined to drive in 120 runs in just 63 games for the Tigers, and Cabrera is looking to become the first ever back-to-back Triple Crown winner.
Fielder’s numbers this year deserve just as much credit, providing Cabrera with some serious protection in the middle of the lineup. After a Cabrera walk, Fielder is batting .419, and he’s driven in the fourth most runs in the American League.
Tigers fans have been witnessing greatness for the past year and a half, but now the entire country will finally understand just how special these two “Bash Bros” really are.
