Detroit Michigan. A report from ESPN Jerry Crasnick said Detriot Tigers thjird baseman Miguel Cabrera did not take the courtesy of his time to speak to reporters after game three of 2012 World Series in the Tigers clubhouse after the Tigers lost the game to the San Francisco Giants.

The Giants have a three games to zero lead in the 2012 World Series and can win on Sunday and clinch their second World Series title in three years. In the history of the World Series no team has come back from a 3-0 deficit and won the title of World Series champions.

Detroit Tigers player Prince Fielder and some of the Tigers players did speak to reporters after the game to answer why their offense in the World Series has been dismal so far.

Crasnick wrote of Cabrera's refusal to talk to reporters about his team anemic performance on the field "Superstars and team leaders have an obiligation to share at their lockers on good days and bad days and Cabrera failed the leadership test by fleeing the scene and leaving his teammates to face a never ending assualt about the Tigers offensive futility."

The press has a right to be angry when a sports star refuses to answer questions on why the performance on the field is not up to the expectations of a superstar. After all fans want to know answers why everybody sports has a bad day at the office.

During the 2012 World Series St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols who was then playing for the Cardinals did not speak to reporters after game two of the World Series when the Cardinals lost to the Texas Rangers. The next game Albert Pujols hit three home runs.

The expectation in Detroit is that Miguel will have a great day in game four of the World Series since it is win or go home for the Tigers.

In the words of the late actor Christopher Reeve who once said "When you choose hope, anything is possible."
