We admitted we were powerless over alcohol-that our lives had become unmanageable

That’s what Miguel Cabrera should have said this afternoon.

Cabrera returned to Lakeland today – to speak to the press and presumably begin Spring Training; yet he refused to utter the words alcoholic or addict.
The baseball fan in me is happy that he will not be missing the regular baseball season.  The human being in me sees that this guy needs help.  Knowing the track record of how all professional sports leagues deal with addictions, I’m concerned that he didn’t say enough and neither the Tigers nor MLB are taking enough action.
