2014 Top Home Run Hitters: AL/NL, HR Streaks (5 Active) + Multi HRs: The Heavy Hitters Are Finally Awake

The 2012 and 2013 AL MVP finally is putting it all together.  Miguel Cabrera has helped bash Detroit to an 8 game wining streak, and has finally hit HRs in back to back games. After hitting for a decent average for a few weeks, the 31 Year Old 1B has been racking up RBI, and is adding power back to his repertoire. Miggy now has 25 RBI in 29 Games Played despite just cranking 4 HRs.   But this writer feels a hot streak coming from the RHB.  Cabrera is coming off back to back 44 HR campaigns.

Also effectively off the snide is Adrian Beltre, who clubbed a Round Tripper in the last 2 games the Rockies have obliterated the Rangers.  It may come as little solace to the now 17 – 17 Texas team, but your Silver Slugger 3B is starting to mash.

Now only if you could have the real Prince Fielder stand up and do the same! Read the rest of this entry

The Indians were big players in the 2012 offseason – heading into the 2013 year.

The club stepped up and signed 1B/OF Nick Swisher to a 5 YRs/$70 MIL deal – and inked OF Michael Bourn to a 4 YR contract worth $48 MIL.
