Miguel Cabrera was feeling a little saucy on Friday night and decided to tempt fate by touching Adrian Beltre’s head. And you all know what happens if you touch Beltre’s head — you’re going to get a boot up your butt in return.
Cabrera doubled for the Tigers against the Rangers in the third and advanced to third on a groundout. While hanging out on the bag, he struck up a conversation with Beltre. Then he looked down to create a diversion, and when Beltre wasn’t paying attention, he did the unspeakable.
Beltre smacked Cabrera with his glove in return, and then followed up with a nut punch. Miggy hit back at Beltre’s nuts, making it look like a couple of third graders quibbling on the playground at recess.
Gotta love it when a bunch of grown men play around like kids.
