Are we really using Miguel's off field drinking related instances to discount his value as a baseball player?
Last time I checked, we only care about what a baseball player does on the field.
I know plenty of people, as well myself have had drinking related instances in my life that were from pure stupidity. It doesn't make someone an alcoholic or prevent them from being effective at their jobs. I have a very successful career despite having a few isolated stupid instances in my earlier 20's. I never missed worked or allowed it to affect anything else, it was just stupid young adult moments. Don't bring up Cabrera's temporary stupidity as a reason to discount his on field baseball abilities and values. He is one of the best hitters of our generation.
To those that do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty of baseball. If you want to learn about baseball, to appreciate baseball, it is necessary to understand the language she speaks.
