Tigers Outfielder Austin Jackson Is Either On Drugs, Seeing Ghosts, Or Both

| by Jonathan Wolfe

You’d think Tigers outfielder Austin Jacskon would be used to seeing Miguel Cabrera smash homeruns by now, but this doesn’t seem to be the case.

Cabrera went deep yesterday against the Orioles. No big deal right? Cabrera hits homeruns just about every other game.

Apparently this homerun was a big deal to Jackson, because he couldn't stop staring at him afterwards. When Cabrera returned to the dugout after trotting around the bases, Jackson stared at him for a good 10 seconds with the most bizarre, starry-eyed look on his face.

 It’s like he sees a baby alien crawling out the side of Cabrera’s head:

For what it's worth, Cabrera's shot did come in the 9th inning with Tigers down 1-0. But still, Jackson looks like a 20-year-old kid at a rave here. After the game, a reporter showed Torii Hunter the clip. All Hunter could do was laugh and say "There's something wrong with him."

Cabrera, meanwhile, is continuing his beastly ways this season. He's hitting .295 with six homeruns and 35 RBIs through the first 36 games of the season. He's on pace right now to put up 180 RBIs on the year, which is, of course, ridiculous.
