Adrian Beltre hates having his head touched, and Miguel Cabrera knows that. On Tuesday night, Beltre collected the 2,500th hit of his MLB career. So naturally, Miggy had to mess with his buddy when he got to first.
Like a good friend, Cabrera tracked down the ball for Beltre so he could keep it for a souvenir. The Texas Rangers PA announcer then informed the fans in attendance that Beltre had reached a milestone, so he took his helmet off to acknowledge the standing ovation. Cabrera saw that as an opportunity to touch Beltre’s head and took advantage.
As some of you might remember, Miggy touched Beltre’s head last month when he got to third base and Beltre responded by punching him in the nuts. What do you think he did on Tuesday?
Cabrera should have seen that coming. By now he should know the deal — touch Beltre’s head and get a sack whack in return. He can’t say he hasn’t been warned.
