The debate has been going crazy for the last month with the news that Brandon Inge would be competing for the starting 2nd baseman job. After listening to calls over the past several weeks it seems that no one wants Inge to start at 2nd, the question is who you would like to start at 2nd come opening day. The spring is just about over, and the numbers are just about complete for the spring.

Here are the four options for the starting 2nd baseman job and their stats this spring:

Ryan Raburn- .325 AVG .364 OBP 6HR 18 RBI

Danny Worth- .313 AVG .395 OBP 1HR 6RBI

Ramon Santiago- .294 AVG .350 OBP 0HR 3RBI

Brandon Inge- .174 AVG .224 OBP 1HR 1RBI

I went around the office today at 97.1 The Ticket and asked around about who they think should start at 2nd.

Tony Ortiz- Ramon Santiago: “He is the best fielder of the bunch and definitely a better hitter than Inge and better fielder than Raburn.

Doug Karsch- Ramon Santiago: “Closer to the whole package than anyone else.”

Scott “The Gator” Anderson- Ramon Santiago: “He has experience at the position and I believe Raburn will DH and play left field.”

Khang “Producer of Karsch and Anderson”- Ramon Santiago: “Santiago is a switch hitter and solid defensively”

Josh “Phone Screener for Valenti and Foster”- Ryan Raburn: “He is the best hitter and who cares about defense this team is built to drive in runs.”

Matt Dery- Ryan Raburn: “Good bat and has Leyland’s trust.”

Mike Valenti- Ramon Santiago: “He is the most consistent of the group and is a switch hitter which is so valuable in today’s game.”

Now it’s your turn to vote on who should be the Tigers starting 2nd baseman on opening day.
