A team with Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, and Justin Verlander has no shortage of Superstar power. However, Brandon Inge, the epitome of grit, is once again the talk of the town. Here are some links to prove it:
It all started with Jason Beck. He had to go and tell everyone that Inge wants to play second base? That scoundrel. Beck’s always stirring up drama (That’s a joke by the way. Jason is seriously awesome at his job).
Twitter went into a panic, so much so that I had to turn it off and listen to some music.
Then it was time to take to the blogs.
Bless You Boys’ Kurt Mensching doesn’t think it’s the worst thing in the world, like me, and advises a wait and see approach. If only everyone thought like Kurt.
Chris Iott of MLive wonders why everyone is so angry that Inge will be given a shot at the starting job.
Rob Rogacki of Detroit4Lyfe suggests that Shenanigans are afloat and says that while they’re at it the Tigers should send Don Kelly to the bullpen and re-sign Dontrelle Willis.
John Lowe of the Detroit Free Press reports that Leyland wants Brandon Inge to win the job. Of course he does. He’s Brandon Inge.
Finally, Rogo of DesigNATE Robertson has already written the scene six weeks from now that can only be hyped up as, The INGEcision.
Here’s what the Tigers new scoreboard will look like. All you can say is Holy Comerica!
And for you Michiganders, every single regular season game the Tigers play in 2012 will be televised. 157 by Fox Sports Detroit and 5 by the Fox Game of the Week. Get ready for some Rod and Mario!
And please keep the family of Hall of Fame Catcher Gary Carter in your minds. He passed away yesterday after his battle with cancer. He was 57.
