(Video) Cabrera Tossed…But What Did He Say?

I’m not sure what happened, but a web site called “Motor City Muckraker” says he called umpire Chad Fairchild a homophobic slur!


On June 29, Cabrera also appeared to call Rays closer Fernando Rodney a “maricón,” the Spanish equivalent of “faggot.”

Home plate umpire Chad Fairchild shocked many Tigers fans Sunday when he ejected slugger Miguel Cabrera in the middle of his at-bat with the bases loaded.

The reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner wasn’t demonstrative and only said a few words. So what could he have said to provoke an ejection?

Cabrera appeared to call Fairchild a “homo.”

After the game, Fairchild wouldn’t divulge what Cabrera uttered but said that it will be in his report about the ejection.

On June 29, Cabrera also appeared to call Rays closer Fernando Rodney a “maricón,” the Spanish equivalent of “faggot.”

Is Cabrera homophobic? Is that a sufficient reason to remove a player? We’d like to hear from you.

Here is the video, what do you think?


(Video) Miguel Throw’s His Gum At Ryan Raburn! So What!

A funny moment happened Sunday when former Tiger Ryan Raburn broke up Jose Alvarez’s no-hitter in the 5th inning with a home run.  As Raburn was getting ready to round third base in his home run trot Cabrera fired his chewed gum at the Cleveland Indian.

I thought it was funny, knowing that Miguel is a funny guy who enjoys playing the game but some nation pundits didn’t like it one bit. So what!

If you follow Cabrera you know that when he’s sober he is a fun loving guy and this was nothing more than a couple of former teammates busting balls, people need to get a grip.
