Bob Nightengale USA TODAY Published 12:32 PM EST Mar 5, 2019 LAKELAND, Fla. — He’s of the greatest players in franchise history, a future Hall of Famer who’ll be alongside Cobb, Greenberg, Kaline and Trammell in Detroit Tigers’ lore, but today, he is considered an albatross. Miguel Cabrera is on a team going nowhere this season, a franchise building for the future, but one that’s paying an enormous disproportion sum of money for his performance of the past.

BARRON, Wis. — A 21-year-old man killed a western Wisconsin couple in a baffling scheme to kidnap their teenage daughter, then held the girl captive for three months before she narrowly managed to escape and reach safety as he drove around looking for her, authorities said. Jayme Closs, 13, was skinny, disheveled and wearing shoes too big for her when she approached a stranger and pleaded for help Thursday in the small, isolated north woods town of Gordon, where police said she was being held by Jake Thomas Patterson. Within minutes, Patterson was pulled over and jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges for what authorities said was his meticulously planned shotgun attack at the girl’s home in October. The news that Jayme was safe set off joy and relief 60 miles away in her hometown of Barron, population 3,300, ending an all-out search that gripped the state, with many people fearing the worst the longer she was missing. “My legs started to shake.
