For the next several weeks we’ll be rolling out our list of the best The Moment’s of 2013. The list is the product of winnowing down 173 moments from April to October into the best twenty. They vary in their importance but all captivated us in an important way. A few are silly, a few are excellent plays, and a few will travel down in Tigers lore. I hope you enjoy it.

So here’s the thing. Two days earlier, Miguel Cabrera hit a massive, game-tying blast to slay Mariano Rivera. It was a Friday night and Comerica Park South (my apartment) went nuts. Then Cabrera and VMart participated in another ambush on Sunday afternoon of the same Hall of Fame reliever. The entire series was ridiculous for many reasons including the Tigers amazing ability to lose both games and basically everything Miguel Cabrera did. I don’t need to set the stage for you. You lived it. There’s video. It was awesome. And you won’t be waiting long for Friday night swing.
