It appears that Brandon Inge is close to returning and he’ll join Toledo on Monday for a rehab assignment.

Junkballing: No shortage of news

14.06.2008 17 comments

Leyland abandons logic in Sheffield mess

15.05.2008 35 comments

The announcement came out last night that Gary Sheffield’s switch to full time left fielder had come to an end after only 5 games. This latest turn of events isn’t surprising, but the aftermath makes no sense. The Tigers are relegated to carrying a player on the roster who can’t even DH everyday. If only […]
