This one photograph simultaneously captures one of the highest and lowest points of the 2013 MLB regular season.

On the right, you have Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera was putting together perhaps the greatest individual season in baseball history until hip and abdomen problems derailed his quest for greatness in late August.

On the left, you have Jhonny Peralta. Peralta was one of the bigger names implicated in the Biogenesis scandal that permeated every baseball conversation for monthsand would return in full force if either Peralta or Nelson Cruz returned from their suspensions to help an AL playoff team.
