- Miguel Cabrera cannot shake his knee problems, and now it appears he has “chronic changes” to it, whatever that means.
- This is just too sad.
Doctors say this is something he'll have to deal with for rest of career. Cabrera is upbeat that he can keep playing, but "sad" that he won't be at first base. He's adamant that there will be no surgery. "Forget about that. I'm done with that." https://t.co/NnhzXupkhq— Evan Woodbery (@evanwoodbery) June 4, 2019
