Happy 500th to Miggy!

SDS

As a Tigers fan I extend my most heartfelt congratulations to Miguel Cabrera on his entry to the 500 club. He is the king 👑👑👑.

Whether you’re a Tigers fan, Marlins fan, or just love Miggy in general, what’s your favorite moment as he made his way to that milestone?

It is crazy my grandpa got me into baseball many years ago like 2005-2006. And he was a Miggy fan, do not know why back then as he was a Yankee fan, however I recently just started to get back into baseball after not watching for years once I started playing this game, and I kid you not 1 of the first diamonds I got on my team was the diamond Miggy. I felt like it was a sign.

SDS

His triple crown season by far. Hadnt been done before him in a long time. Thats like some immortal wing of the hall of fame lol

SDS

I remember playing in middle school and high school and coaches would always show us his swing to learn from. Just watching him hit was a treat. Miggy, Pujols, Aaron, and A-rod some of the best right handed hitters this game has ever seen!

SDS

Love Miggy. Unfortunately I’m a huge Yankees fan. And for some reason the first thing that comes to mind is the brawl a few years ago. Tigers and Yankees.The guy may have a great bat swing but he whiffed a few times with the hands.

But congrats Miggy!!! On 500.

SDS

Mine might be the time the Yankees and Tigers had a dust up. Gary Sanchez was throwing sucker punches at guys in the pile and I think I saw Miggy do the same, lol.
Seriously, when the 2003 Marlins upset the Yankees.

SDS

My favorite moment was when Miggy hit 2 home runs in a row against Mariano Rivera. The first one was such an epic battle that reminded me of Gagne vs Bonds

I think the show the video game further made Miggy an icon. Early on in DD he was a highly sought after end game card. It was basically Miggy and Trout that were the once in a season pulls that had you jumping up and down if you got them.

The game has shifted over the years to include a lot of flash back and special series cards. So a Miggy card is great to some, he’s not the sought after beast card from earlier incarnations of the series.

I’ve always been a huge baseball fan and that is what allows me to deal with some of the glaring flaws in the game itself. Miggy being a high rated card further peaked my interest in his real life career. So in that aspect, MLB the Show video game has made me appreciate a generational hitter like Miggy, more.

Always enjoyed watching Miggy hit. I know he’s a shell of what he once was but the guy has had a HoF career. I kind of hope he gets remaining hits for 3000 soon, I’d like to see him retire with the .300 average and 500 home runs but his average may dip if he hangs on too long.

Miggy should be able to finish out his career hitting over .300. His career BA is .311. It will take multiple Chris Davis level slumps for him not to end his career above the .300 mark

Figured we would get him at 3 EST... I haven't seen a tweet from SDS so I guess not until tomorrow.

Disregard.

Honestly that is kind of generous for a 37 year old Miggy that spends the majority of his time at DH.

SDS

Good luck getting 6 TB in stage 2 30 min into this garbage. The rookie card is atrocious. Everything is a liner right to an OF and no chance of anything past a double cuz my grandmother is faster. Ridiculous

That’s what I’m saying. Love Miggy but he was never know for stellar D, pretty sure they just took the defensive rating from his Sig card

Its a career card. Why else would he have his marlins speed?

Is the program time limited?

SDS

This HR with the rookie card is a joke...how man times can someone center PCI w/power swing only to have the ball barely reach the warning track. Do better, stop nerfing cards in challenges.

I agree, but I think it’s more to do with them changing the sliders behind our backs and making it harder.

And giving the AI an unfair IQ and speed boost.

Just be patient and power swing, the majority are on rookie difficulty just wait for a meatball and power swing, I was able to bang this program out in 45 mins last night and im horrible at moments and the game in general.
