Miguel Cabrera is on pace to go down as one of the greatest hitters baseball has ever seen, and his remakarable 2013 season has experts talking about him in comparison to the likes of Joe Dimaggio, Willie Mays and others.
So, how far can Cabrera take the Tigers this year? And will Nick Castellanos be along for the ride?
That, plus a look at the Lions through two preseason games. Is this team doomed to another subpar season?

Bless You Boys Podcast 105 has a running time of 1:03 and features Al Beaton and HookSlide. Kurt Mensching will be back next week.
Tigers, Cabrera formally announce 8-year extension, commit to 10-years and $292 million overall.
MLB execs disgusted over Miguel Cabrera extension.
Fans of advanced metrics are calling the Cabrera extension the worst contract ever. What a surprise!
But is it really that crazy of a contract in retrospect? $30 million may look like chump change in ten years.
Tigers were between a rock and a hard place. Let Cabrera walk in free agency, the fans get upset. Sign the best hiotter in the game to a contract locking him up for the remainder of his career, the fans get upset.
Tigers' GM Dave Dombrowski contended it's better to extend a pending free agent early on the process, believing a player is more likely to leave the longer you wait.
The Tigers may not be all that worried about the long-term ramifications of a contract extension thanks to the ridiculous amount of TV money MLB teams earn.
Max Scherzer and the Tigers cease contract negotiations.
Scherzer's agent Scott Boras claims it was the Tigers who rejected a deal.
Tyler Collins makes the team as a left fielder.
Tigers obtain shortstop Alex Gonzalez from the Orioles for utility man Steve Lombardozzi.
Forbes values Tigers at $680 million, 15th overall in MLB. Anyone else think that figure sounds low?
Doug Fister will start the season on the DL. The Tigers win the trade!
In this episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, HookSlide talks with Tigers beat writer and MLive columnist Chris Iott about the past week of Tigers baseball. Topics include whether the bullpen has graduated from "terrible" to "not too bad," whether Dave Dombrowski might be looking to trade for another bullpen arm in July and who would be on the trading block, the ongoing neck-and-neck race between the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals, an "anemic" offense (to use Brad Ausmus' word) that seems to be coming back to life, Alex Avila's knee injury, and Brad Aumsus' growth as a manager in 2015.
Dan Bartley, another podcaster of Detroit sports on Spreaker that spoke with me on Spreaker Episode 153 yesterday, joins me tonight filling in for Ed Smith, who is covering another boxing match.
We talk the Tigers' 4-3 win in 10 innings over the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium and Miguel Cabrera hitting his 400th major-league home run. Shane Greene is okay as well. Dan and I also preview the Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN tomorrow night at 8:05.
