In Kansas City, Game 7 of the World Series conjures up memories of Bret Saberhagen’s brilliance, a St. Louis meltdown and the only Royals championship in 1985. There was Willie McCovey’s game-ending lineout that was oh-so-close to being a Series-winning hit in 1962 and another loss 40 years later by Barry Bonds & Co. to the Angels. Be it Babe Ruth, Jack Morris or Mariano Rivera, the moments created in an all-or-nothing game resonate through baseball history.

Buster Posey was annoyed. The Giants catcher wanted Madison Bumgarner to do more than barely break a smile after a brilliant pitching performance put San Francisco one win from another World Series title. Heck, Bumgarner might still have more work to do. Baseball took its final break Monday before the Giants and Royals settle things.

The message from Joe Torre shown on the video board at AT&T Park was clear and direct: ”When in doubt, sit it out.” From the World Series to the NFL, from hockey to youth sports, concussions are a major topic at all levels of athletics. They shaped part of the postseason for the San Francisco Giants – first baseman Brandon Belt returned from one, backup catcher Hector Sanchez didn’t. Torre, the former catcher and Hall of Fame manager who’s now a Major League Baseball executive, taped public-service announcements that appeared at ballparks in October, reiterating that head injuries need to be checked. The wild-card Oakland Athletics lost catcher John Jaso and outfielder Craig Gentry before the playoffs because of concussion effects.

The Detroit Tigers season ended earlier then they’d hoped and in very disappointing fashion after they were swept by the Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS. Now their offseason is getting off to a pretty rough start too after the team learned that Miguel Cabrera will not be able to resume baseball activities for at least three months following surgery on his right ankle. Though resurgent in September, Cabrera wasn’t his MVP caliber self for most of the second half of the season. His lack of production (three home runs and 16 RBIs from the All-Star break until Sept. 1) can be attributed in part to a bone spur in his right ankle injury, which was bothersome enough that manager Brad Ausmus considered giving Cabrera multiple days off in late August even after the team had fallen behind the Kansas City Royals in the standings. The Tigers knew offseason surgery was distinct possibility, but nobody was anticipating that in addition to the bone spur, doctors would find a stress fracture in the navicular bone on the top of his foot. Doctors were forced to place two screws in his foot to stabilize the fracture, which changed his offseason outlook significantly. From MLive.com’s Chris Iott:   The Detroit Tigers do not know for sure when Miguel Cabrera will resume baseball activities or play in his first game. They cannot say with 100 percent certainty that he will be ready for the start of spring training or even opening day. But general manager Dave Dombrowski is certain of one thing: Cabrera showed some extreme toughness by playing through an ankle injury that was significantly worse than it was believed to be. “He is as tough as you can possibly be,” general manager Dave Dombrowski said. “They cannot even believe once they went in there and looked at it that he could play with the ankle that he had. It’s worse than what we ever would have anticipated.” Cabrera had the operation on Wednesday, so that would set his three-month evaluation for late January. Depending on the news there, he could either begin baseball activities about three weeks ahead of spring training, or be recommended more rest. Either way, his season preparation would be well behind schedule, and more rest could push his full recovery into the regular season.  The Cabrera waiting game will be an unwanted subplot in an already important offseason for general manager Dave Dombrowski. With Victor Martinez and Max Scherzer likely to test the free agent market and a bullpen that needs an overhaul, Dombrowski has plenty to consider. Any uncertainty over Cabrera’s recovery only adds to his plate and could place some urgency on re-signing Martinez, who’s reportedly looking for a four-year deal . The Tigers championship window isn’t closed yet. Not with Justin Verlander, David Price, Anibal Sanchez and Rick Porcello definitely in the mix, but the Kansas City Royals postseason run coupled with another competitive season from the Cleveland Indians makes it clear winning a fifth straight AL Central title will take some work. Avoiding a slow start will be critical in that equation, and not having Cabrera or Martinez in the lineup in April makes them vulnerable.  It’s going to be a challenge for Dombrowski to build his roster with this extra hurdle now in his way. Can he rise to the occasion again, or will the circumstances finally push Detroit down the ladder in 2015?   More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.

The Detroit Tigers say slugger Miguel Cabrera has undergone successful surgery to remove bone spurs in his right ankle and to repair a stress fracture. The team announced Friday that the surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Cabrera will be reevaluated in three months. The Tigers say the stress fracture was to the navicular bone.
