This weeks Sports Illustrated Regional Covers

This week Sports Illustrated has combined previews of the 2014 big league baseball post season and the 2014-15 NHL season preview on three regional covers.

The East Coast cover has Baltimore Orioles Gold Glove center fielder Adam Jones and Washington Capitals goal scoring great Alex Ovechkin.

In the Midwest its the St. Louis Cardinals ace right hander Adam Wainwright and USA Hockey and St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie.

Out West the cover features Los Angeles Dodgers Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw and Stanley Cup Champion Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings.

Sports Illustrated points out that no team since the 1935-36 sports year have both the World Series and the Stanley Cup Champions resided in the same city.

That city?

Detroit, Michigan... The 1935 Detroit Tigers won the World Series and the following spring the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup.

With that very fact in hand, why didn't SI have a cover with Miguel Cabrera and Pavel Datsyuk on the cover representing the ONLY city to accomplish the feat?
