DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers were in the middle of a workout for the World Series when comedian George Lopez showed up and began milling around near home plate. Almost instantly, Miguel Cabrera was beside him, laughing it up and looking as excited as he'd been all afternoon. "He likes to have fun," teammate Quintin Berry said. "He enjoys himself. He loves being here, and he likes the loose environment. I understand him having a lot of fun with George and stuff because that's the same kind of person he is. " Baseball's first Triple Crown winner in 45 years seems to enjoy hitting and joking around in equal proportion.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Miguel Cabrera became the 15th player to win baseball's Triple Crown on Wednesday night, joining an elite list that includes Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, and Lou Gehrig.

Granderson had homered twice to reach 43 for the year, tied with the Rangers' Josh Hamilton and one shy of Cabrera. Cabrera went 0 for 2 against the Royals before leaving in the fourth inning to a standing ovation.

The Florida Marlins have no plans to trade either Dontrelle Willis or Miguel Cabrera, owner Jeffrey Loria said yesterday. Loria was reacting to speculation that the Marlins might be looking to unload Willis before the July 31 trade deadline. Loria said the rumors were "unfounded" and "irresponsible. " Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Yhency Brazoban will undergo Tommy John surgery next week on his strained right elbow and will miss the rest of the season. Lefthander C.J. Wilson was activated from the 15-day disabled list by the Texas Rangers, who optioned righthander Scott Feldman to triple-A Oklahoma.

Josh Beckett pitched six innings of one-hit ball before leaving with a possible recurrence of his blister problem, and Miguel Cabrera and Juan Encarnacion homered to help the Florida Marlins beat the visiting Atlanta Braves, 6-2, last night in a game delayed nearly 3 hours by rain. Beckett (8-5) was activated from the disabled list a few hours before the game; he hadn't thrown since June 14 because of the sixth blister problem of his major league career. He left before starting the seventh, after another blister apparently formed on the middle finger of his pitching hand.

It's the best team money could buy vs. the best team in baseball since late May. The Florida Marlins look to knock out the big, bad New York Yankees with an old-school manager, a few veterans and a bunch of kids. It should be fun. Prime-time players. Ivan Rodriguez hit .321 (9 for 28) with two home runs and 10 RBIs in the NL championship series to earn MVP honors. He also hit .353 (6 for 17) with one homer and six RBIs in the NL division series against San Francisco. So, yes, he has come up pretty big lately.

American League batting champion Joe Mauer and the Twins agreed yesterday to a $33 million, four-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration and giving one of Minnesota's young stars the security of a long-term deal. The 23-year-old catcher hit .347 with 84 RBIs last year to help the Twins rally from a 12 1/2-game deficit to win the AL Central on the final day of the regular season. He played in his first All-Star Game last summer. Mauer was eligible for arbitration this winter for the first time.

DETROIT - The fans at Comerica Park rose to their feet Tuesday night as Justin Verlander stoically walked to the dugout, his glove held by the right hand that perplexed the Phillies for eight innings in a 3-1 loss to the Tigers. The pitcher's night was finished. Odubel Herrera - the victim of Verlander's 10th strikeout of the night - was left pondering the fastball he missed as the pitcher listened to the cheers. It was the 32nd time in Verlander's career, and the third time this season, that he struck out 10 batters.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who finished runner-up to Ryan Braun in voting for the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player award, thinks the suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger should be stripped of the honor. Braun finished with 388 points and 20 first-place votes, to 332 and 10 for Kemp. Major League Baseball attempted to suspend Braun following a positive test that October for elevated testosterone, but the penalty was overturned by an arbitrator who ruled Braun's urine sample was handled improperly.

The Baltimore Orioles crossed an item off their trade-deadline to-do list, bolstering their bullpen by acquiring reliever Francisco Rodriguez from the Milwaukee Brewers for minor-league infielder Nick Delmonico. Rumors had it that the man known as K-Rod was a target of the Detroit Tigers - who, Phillies fans may note, are presumably still searching for a possible closer. Rodriguez was once one of the best relievers in the game, saving a major-league-record 62 games for the Los Angeles Angels in 2008.

NEW YORK - Miguel Cabrera smiled when the comparison was made. Then he basically suggested there was no comparison. The Detroit Tigers third baseman was asked Monday about Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, the pride of Millville, N.J. Cabrera is often asked about Trout, especially after Cabrera beat him out for the MVP award last season, when the Detroit star became baseball's first Triple Crown winner since 1967. The Tigers' eight-time all-star did not hesitate when he was asked if Trout as a hitter was comparable to a young Cabrera.

Things got testy at Tampa Bay on Sunday during the Rays' 3-1 win over the Detroit Tigers - and even the real rays that live at Tropicana Field got involved. Both benches were warned by umpire Vic Carapazza after Detroit's Rick Porcello plunked Ben Zobrist in the first inning. It was a spillover from Saturday's 4-3 Rays extra-inning win over the Tigers, in which Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera yelled at the Tampa Bay dugout after striking out in the 10th inning. Seems he didn't take kindly to a high-and-tight Fernando Rodney fastball.

IT WAS 4 hours before game time at Citizens Bank Park when the hallway that leads from the home clubhouse to the dugout was empty and fairly quiet, too. But the closer you got to the Phillies' indoor batting cage, the music reeled you in. First it was Aretha Franklin's "I Say A Little Prayer. " Then it was a jazzier version of Otis Redding's "Stand By Me. " Beyond the sweet music of the greatest vocalists in music history was a more familiar ballpark tune: the sound of ball meeting bat. Domonic Brown was in his office.

  Price could be pricey Justin Verlander set the market with his $200 million contract. So what does that mean for David Price, who edged him for the Cy Young last season? And a better question may be, what does it mean for his budget-conscious employer, the Tampa Bay Rays? Price, 27, will be a free agent after the 2015 season. If the Rays believe they can't afford a long-term extension, they may dangle him in the trade market this season to maximize their return. A midsummer bidding war for Price could turn the season upside down.
