If you go DUI, go big

It's not baseball season yet until we have a great spring training story. Miguel Cabrera delivered in spectacular fashion with "not-your-normal" DUI story. Spell it out for us Deadspin...

So, not good news obviously for the Tigers, but more to the point, not good news for the man who spent last year's offseason in rehab. Pushing a deputy, talking to imaginary friends, and drinking Scotch straight from the bottle while being arrested? Yeah, it was an eventful night.

Cabrera's car was on the side of the road, his engine smoking, when a deputy pulled over to assist. With bloodshoot eyes and slurred speech,

"I am going to (expletive) kill him," Cabrera is quoted as saying.

The deputy saw no one else in the vehicle or in the area. Cabrera, of Boca Raton, grabbed a bottle of James Buchanan's scotch and started drinking.

(In other words... every other night in Montana for me)
