Miguel Cabrera sends a message to Vladdy Jr: ‘The Triple Crown is a lot of pressure’

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is currently not only in the fight to reach the playoffs with the Toronto Blue Jays, but he’s also in full swing in the fight for the MVP of the American League with the Japanese Shohei Ohtani and the Venezuelan Salvador Pérez, who fight side by side for the most prestigious award. However, Vladdy is also fighting for the Triple Crown, that if he gets it, it would give him a great chance of winning the MVP.

The truth is that the last to achieve the Triple Crown of batting and the MVP in the same campaign was the legendary Venezuelan, Miguel Cabrera, who achieved it in the 2012 campaign and knows what the pressure is to reach such high levels, And as he mentioned in an interview for El Extrabase, he believes he can get both the Most Valuable and the Triple Crown.

He has a great chance and I think he will. I would not want to be in their shoes because it is a pressure that is experienced daily. As a Latino, as a brother of his father who played against him, I have already known him since I was little. I would like him to accomplish that feat this year.

Vladdy Jr. has the opportunity to make history as a Triple Crown by being first in AVG with .317 until this September 17, tied for the top of home runs with Salvador Pérez, both with 45 and third in RBI’s with 103.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I am going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
