Default Why Do Teams Pitch to Miguel Cabrera?

Scrolling through early box scores tonight and I see that Cabrera has already hit a three run homerun. Why are teams pitching to him? Is it pride? I'm aware that the man hitting behind him is no slouch but I can't help but thinking that statistically you have a higher chance to win a game by putting him on first base four times a night.

Sorta reminds of '98 watching pitcher after pitcher lobbing balls down the plate for Sosa...

I am missing something?
