The time has finally come for the Tigers to move on from Brandon Inge. Although Inge is a great guy in the community it just doesn’t translate into any on field production. Inge knew for him to make this year’s team he had to hit. The result is a batting avg. under .200 this spring. Inge has proved he can play second base defensively but he has also proved no matter where you put him on the field he cannot produce at the plate. The Tigers have given him every opportunity and Inge has failed to deliver. It’s time to give guys like Ryan Raburn, Ramon Santiago and Danny Worth who is a former 2nd round pick a chance. Inge is dead weight. The Tigers have shown the willingness to eat a contract and move on before and it’s time to do that again.

    Agreed! Brandon has had a good run in Detriot, but they have the makings of a newer, more competitive team this season. Thanks for the memories…let’s move on.

  2. I wouldn’t take him for granted. As a long time Twins fan who had to endure watching Tsuyoshi Nishioka, Luke Hughes and Danny Valencia play defense last season, I’ve vowed to never take a competent fielding infielder for granted again.

    If you don’t want him, plenty of other teams would love to have him. That I know for certain.

    I agree with steven jefferies hes been a great and loyal player but his time has passed. If so many other teams love him let them sign him. Its too bad he can still play the field but were trying to win the world weries and we need everybody to hit. Personally i’d like to see Danny Worth at 2nd base.

    @Break: no team claimed Inge off waivers less than a year ago.

    I hate to say it but Leyland likes the security of Inge’s glove especially given the uncertainty of Cabrera at third base. As long as Inge hits .250 against lefties, the old man is not going to cut Inge.

    We will have to endure another season of Inge’s ridiculous, arrogant and irrational quotes. Which is too bad because I think many of us wanted to be free from the distraction in what could be a historic season for the Tigers.
