When it's all said and done for their careers, Cabrera and Fielder will be the best-hitting duo in Tigers history.
Because they've only been together for just over a year, they haven't earned that distinction yet.
Cabrera re-wrote the record books in 2012, earning the first Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967, and one of the most important people he had to thank was the guy behind him.
In their first season together, Cabrera averaged .330 while Fielder batted a career-high .313, and the two combined to hit 74 home runs and 247 RBIs.
To fully appreciate how dominant the portly partners in crime were last season, the Tigers' other six primary position players in 2012 combined for 70 home runs and 305 RBIs.
And in 2013, Cabrera and Fielder have picked up where they left off.
Cabrera is hitting .375 so far this year, good for second in the AL, and his 41 RBIs rank first in the league, putting him on pace to hit 36 long balls and 184 RBIs this season.
Fielder's nine homers and 33 RBIs are tied for fifth and third respectively in the AL, putting him on pace to hit 40 home runs and 148 RBIs this season.
