The Brandon Inge Circus

This article blows my mind.

Honesty, WHAT THE F????

Here's a look at the stats post ASG of 2009 (when his knees deteriorated) to date for Brandon Inge.

AB's - 1046

Runs - 96

Hits - 229

2Bs - 45

3Bs - 7

HRs - 22!

RBI - 119

BBs - 97

Ks - 293 or 28% of his at bats

Avg - .219

OPB - .282

SLG .320

OPS - .602

That is all kinds of suck. His FGPCT is only .965 (2009-2011) and he's committed 38 errors since 2009. Why is it that our club can not see these numbers and just cut the guy loose? Do they really think he can be a 15-20 home run guy who drives in 60-70 runs? Does he have photos of Leyland and Dombrowski in drag?

I respect the whole "legacy" issue, but when you're done you're done. And Brandon Inge is D-O-N-E. When the great Ken Griffey Jr was obviously a detriment to his team, he didn't pull rank on the Mariners and insist on playing. He walked away mid-season without embarrassing himself any further. Brandon Inge has no shame and will keep hitting below the mendoza line whining about all those "hard-hit" balls that aren't finding the gaps. I hope the Tigers have the decency to put this dog down for good next week. It's the right thing to do.
