When the American League team takes the field next month in the annual Major League All-Star Game, Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera should be in the starting lineup.

Here are four more reasons why you should #votemiggy:

1. Numbers don't lie: Since Cabrera joined the Tigers he's won a Triple Crown, two batting titles, two home run titles, two MVPs, three Silver Slugger awards, and made five All-Star teams.

2. According to Baseball-Reference's "similarity scores" Cabrera's career is currently most similar to Hank Aaron's career. Ever heard of that guy? Aaron? He was pretty good once.

3. Cabrera has the highest OPS in the American League with a 1.043 On-base Plus Slugging.

4. Just look at this. How can you not vote for such a class act?
