Hello. I hope you are all well. It’s been a month and a half since I signed off here at DesigNate Robertson to deal with my recent family health problems. And I have to tell you, I was blown away by the reaction and positive wishes I received from so many of you. It meant more than you know and I cannot thank you enough.
I have good news. We’re not out of the woods yet, but things are improving. Life is settling down again and for now, things are looking up. I hope to and plan on returning to writing about the Tigers by Spring Training of 2013. It won’t be here, though. I want to start fresh with a new site. I’m proud of a lot of things I’ve done here at DNR, but there’s a lot of it that I’m not so happy with at the same time. Plus I think the Nate Robertson reference is dated and needs to go. He's been through enough. Therefore, I’m going to come up with something new and start with a clean slate. I’ll let you know when the time comes where to find me. Stay tuned.
But that’s not why I’m writing this “Encore” piece today. No, this is about a man named Miguel Cabrera. A man that I feel should be voted the MVP of the American League in 2012. And it’s about a particular writer that I am not a fan of and his piece at Yahoo demeaning those that feel Cabrera should be voted the MVP over Mike Trout. His name is Jeff Passan and he’s the worst.
