Position roulette, Inge and Guillen edition

28.09.2008 41 comments

I was hoping to have a chance to run some numbers, but until I do I figured it was worth posting that Inge will play third and Guillen left field next season. I won’t completely pass judgment until I can do the math on this, but for the moment I’m thinking this doesn’t actually help […]

Tigers make roster moves

09.07.2008 24 comments

Following the game tonight Eddie Bonine was optioned to Erie and Dane Sardhina was optioned to Toledo designated for assignment. Taking their places are Jeff Larish and Brandon Inge. Inge of course is returning from the disabled list. In the case of Bonine, he struggled his last 2 outings and his command was particularly good. […]

Tigers getting pieces back

06.07.2008 144 comments

It appears that Brandon Inge is close to returning and he’ll join Toledo on Monday for a rehab assignment. Also, Rod and Mario mentioned during today’s broadcast that Ramon Santiago could be back for the Cleveland series. Going into tonight’s game (and he’s 0 for 2 as I write this), Santiago is 2 for 21 […]

Brandon Inge to theDL

25.06.2008 19 comments

The oblique problem isn’t going away for Brandon Inge and he is now on the DL. Dane Sardhina’s contract was purchased from Toledo and he’ll back-up Pudge Rodriguez. I’d guess that Sardhina wouldn’t be put into the rotating catcher situation that Inge was in. This will certainly limit some of Jim Leyland’s flexibility when it […]

Inge to catch more, Pudge to catch less

09.06.2008 13 comments

In today’s edition of what’s up Jimmy’s sleeve, we find an alternating catcher. The announcement came down today that Pudge isn’t the regular catcher any more. He and Brandon Inge will rotate behind the plate. Neither are really hitting worth a lick and at this point Inge is probably the better defensive catcher anyways. Plus […]

Junkballing: riding the river of news

07.05.2008 6 comments

A startling amount of news from the beat writers and analysis from bloggers today. Inge likes catching, Cabrera at first base, and more. Inge says catching is fun Brandon Inge is just too fascinating to resist. The very different views of his defense, the despair over his offense, the sympathy and lack of sympathy over […]

Junkballing: Almost too much to link to

24.03.2008 4 comments

A flurry of link worthy items, plus just being behind in general leads to the mother of all link round-ups: Injuries – left handed pitcher edition Bless You Boys picked up a Buster Olney report that scouts were speculating that Dontrelle Willis may be injured. That could certainly be part of his control problems. Then […]

Granderson to DL – Arghhh

23.03.2008 11 comments

Remember when the Tigers made the Edgar Renteria trade and everyone was so happy? Meanwhile Joel Zumaya was being evaluated from having his shoulder crushed and the news he’d be out put a big damper on the euphoria. Well, now Curtis Granderson’s finger (middle no less) is sticking it to Tigers fans basking in the […]

Fanning the Inge/Thames trade fires

19.03.2008 18 comments

While the players had a day off today, I’m sure that the front office was continuing to work the phones. News of another injury in Dodgertown may be a catalyst for a Brandon Inge trade while more Marcus Thames rumors swirl. I saw it first on Spot Starters that the Dodgers back up plan for […]

Junkballing: Baserunning, blocking, projections


Some of my Tiger blogging brethren have clever names for their link round up posts, like Bless You Boys “Like Stripes on the fur coat of a Tiger” or Mack Avenue Tigers “Bunt Singles” or Roar of the Tigers “Pug Marks.” Here’s my foray and we’ll call it Junkballing:

Inge trade not likely

15.03.2008 6 comments

Dave Dombrowski told the Lakeland Ledger that he doesn’t expect Brandon Inge to be traded before the season opens. While there is still speculation that the Giants or Dodgers might have interest it appears that the teams aren’t really close to a trade. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for the Dodgers to take […]

Could “Inge Situation” be resolved this week?

09.03.2008 14 comments

Lynn Henning devoted a lot of words to the travails of Brandon Inge today. He had a lengthy piece in this morning’s paper exploring the human side of the situation. And in a blog entry Henning postulates that a trade will come by the end of the week. The Dodgers are the popular rumor at […]
