DAVE DOMBROWSKI: NOT A HAPPY GUY

Thursday, Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski made his first public comments about first baseman Miguel Cabrera and his drunken weekend arrest.

Dombrowski admitted he was “upset” when he got an early Saturday morning call from Michigan police asking him to pick his $152 million slugger from jail. Cabrera was taken into custody after a drunken brawl with his wife following a night of drinking.

Dombrowski says he let Cabrera play later Saturday against the Chicago White Sox because he thought¬†“that he was capable of playing in the game.” Cabrera went 0-4 and stranded six runners. The Tigers ended up blowing a three game lead in four days and losing the division to the Minnesta Twins.
