Tigers have released Brandon Inge

Recommended Posts

Wow... what an absolute idiot!!!

Career with men on base: .705 OPS

Career with RISP: .684 OPS

Get over yourself, dickwad. Oakland will see soon enough that you are prone to these mirages, and you'll follow it up with a 2 for 35.

Taken completely out of context. Inge said that jokingly and said it was because Avila was always hitting HR in front of him. He had nothing but good things to say about the Tigers. I'm not an Inge fan, but the Free Press is completely wrong here.

It certainly wouldn't surprise me if he wasn't joking, but if you heard the rest of the interview then I'll take your word for it.

Also, he's still delusional then. It's absolutely false to claim he never had guys on base ahead of him. He had a ton of chances. They didn't hit THAT many homeruns. He had 883 plate appearances between 2010 and 2011. He had runners in scoring position in 258 of those plate appearances. That's a ratio a lot of crappy hitters would love.

That's the kind of sure-thing proven veteran the tigers need!! Maybe we can trade Castellanos for him!

Don't talk crazy, Oakland would laugh at that offer.

The whole "nobody just sits back and lets me be super awesome" or "everyone gets int eh way of me being awesome" has been an Inge staple for years.

I have rarely defended Inge before, but it is beyond frustrating for the Free Press to take a quote this far out of context and spin it to make a former player look bad. It's terrible journalism, and no one else knows the interview in its full context to defend it.

While I agree with this 100% the real quote is just as hatable.

Not if he was really joking. If he said it was because Avila kept hitting home runs in front of him, that gives it a totally different meaning.

Let's just both agree that I am right and you send me $100. Cash.

So Inge is having a good couple of weeks...I'm happy for him, but I wish he would have done this for us. This could just be one of his mini hot streaks, but it is a little annoying watching a guy who hit like crap for us the last few years having this kind of week.

Great. This buys Inge at least one more month not in Jim Leyland's lineup.

I probably would have been classified as an Inge "hater", but I'm happy for him. Maybe he just needed a change of scenery. In any event, wether he continues on a roll or returns to his general level of futility, I'm glad he's off the Tigers.

Look. For the month of may he is hitting .160. And this "great week" he is hitting .227 I realize it was with a couple dramatic hits. But that is his M.O. A couple jaw dropping dramatic hits/plays a year. And 95% of the rest of the time, sucking.

I don't care one bit what he does anymore. A player for the A's hit a grand slam, doesn't affect my day.

Saw a link about the grand slam. Good for him. I don't wish any ill will to Inge.

I don't wish any ill on him either. He's just still not a good baseball player.

Except that it made you post that, so it did just a little :-)
