Around the World in 80 Words, Thursday Edition: Miggy, Bobby V. and TCU troubles


Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown, making him the first Major Leaguer since Carl Yazstrzemski in 1967 to accomplish the feat. (Robin Buckson/Detroit News).

Always locally sourced, always fresh. Taking you around the world in 80 words or less…

… Miggy! We all owe Miguel Cabrera a giant thank you. The Tigers slugger ended a 45-year Triple Crown drought, which was even longer than the T.C. drought in horse racing (a paltry 34-year wait, thus far)…

… Ding Dong, Bobby V’s gone. The Red Sox fired their embattled manager after just 10 months on the job. Valentine made exactly zero friends (save club president Larry Lucchino) on his way to managing the Sawx to their worst season since ’65…

… TCU QB Casey Pachall was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DWI, and has been suspended indefinitely. Pachall had also failed a drug test prior to the arrest of four players during a campus-wide drug bust…

… Add this to your list of reasons its good not to be Arkansas interim head coach John L. Smith: His amended bankruptcy filing from Wednesday showed that Smith is $15 million further in debt than was previously reported, bringing his debt total to a cool $40 million. Expect another “Smile!” rant soon. Or just watch it now.
