Things just got a whole lot more interesting in Motown this summer:
Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera has been arrested on drunken driving charges in Florida.
The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office says the 27-year-old's car engine was smoking alongside a road late Wednesday when a deputy spotted the vehicle.
According to the arrest report, Cabrera smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and took a swig from a bottle of scotch in front of a deputy.
Police say Cabrera repeatedly refused to cooperate, saying, "Do you know who I am, you don't know anything about my problems."
Yes, you read that bolded part correctly.
Lest you forget, this is the same Miggy Cabrera that was out drinking the night before the final game of the 2009 season who was then arrested in a domestic dispute with his wife.
Not sure how this all plays out (or how the people in Detroit will react to this), but the travails of Miggy could have a HUGE impact on the 2010 season for the Tigers, even after doling out $90.25M in contracts. Regardless of those players added (or retained), the engine of the Tiger offense is Cabrera and without him (or with him battling his problem), the Tigers offense in 2010 may find themselves stuck in neutral.
