Cabrera wins co-NL Player of the Week

Miguel Cabrera continues to rack in the honors.

Cabrera, who was 9-for-22 (.409) with two doubles and three home runs in six games last week, has been the catalyst to his club's resurgence in the Wild Card race.

All is well for Cabrera individually, as well, because he was named a National League Player of the Week presented by Bank of America for his efforts during the week ending Aug. 27. He shares the weekly honor with Giants left-hander Noah Lowry.

"I congratulated Miguel," Marlins manager Joe Girardi said. "I'd like to know what Noah Lowry did, he must have had a great week. Miguel is having an unbelievable month."

Let me help you out Joe, Lowry did have a great week.  But that aside:  Cabrera has been red hot through the Marlins winning streak, like I needed to tell you that.

If he can keep some semblance of this up throughout the rest of the season, he should garner a lot of votes for the NL MVP award.  If the Marlins can continue on their present pace (no, I'm talking about winning every game.  But on their win percentage since May 22) he may even win the thing.
