Miguel's drinking is sad as it is with anyone with an addiction. In the 50's, Mickey Mantle was an alcoholic,as were many of his pals with the Yankees. Why did the Mick not get arrested? Probably because he was the Mick and no cop in NY wanted to be the one to expose the problem. Same with Ford ans the others. Today, a policeman would not even recognize Miguel Cabrera,let alone give him a break . I'm not say he should get a break,just pointing out the difference in culture now, and then.
