    Hate to say it, but if the opportunity presents itself, he must be upgraded. When it really mattered, he choked.

      Every game really matters.

        Do we not understand the difference between the World Series and some random night in July when the Tigers are 30 games above .500?

          Do we not understand that every game still counts? Every player that doesnt do well in the world series should be traded... Bye bye Ted Williams, See ya Stan Musial!

            Do you really want to compare Brandon Inge to Ted Williams?

            We are talking about a guy who is about a .240 hitter, strikes out a ton, is an error machine at third, and happened to hit a few homers this year. It would be absurdly easy to replace that type of production at 3rd base.

            Look, I have been a big fan of Inge, but the playoffs are most important. After Jerry Stackhouse choked against the Raptors in the 2002(?) playoffs, Dumars didn't hesitate to ship him out of town. Stackhouse led the league in scoring that year, but Dumars was able to obtain a player that would help win a ring.

            But it is a moot point since you are willing to settle for a Wild Card team.

              You do know...that he is likely one of maybe 4-5, 3Bmen (on earth) to make that stab, in the first place. And the other of those folks, either don't have the arm to even try the throw or are not available? BTW that is a play I have seen him make often.

              My only complaint about Inge for the moment is the amount of strike outs. If he can figure out how to not K 100 times, I am cool with him.

                  free swinging

                  B looks bad on the final out tonight. 3 pitches?? I know it was a tough situation but working a count to a guy who was throwing a lot of balls would have been nice.
                  .406 might as well be 1000 cuz no one's going to beat it.

                    Brandon is ok but not a game breaker. He does strike out a lot too.

                      I agree. I've ALWAYS liked Inge. Good people, scrapy and solid. However, he seemed to be in the middle of everything this series and the Tigers lost. Too many errors and outs. He's going to be unfairly blamed. I'm afraid he's going to be a goat for awhile. I just hope Toger fans remember they won the American League and lost to a hungry and talented team (and bad the Tigers were better).

                        Love Cleveland but the PC in me thinks the logo has to go. Even Inge would think so.

                          Detroit fans need to breathe and realize this was a great year.

                            I tend to agree that every game matters, but as the postseason progresses, the importance of each game progresses. Giving you the benefit of the doubt, your perception on "when it really matters" seems to be reversed...

                            regular season: .253
                            ALDS: .133
                            ALCS: .333
                            WS: .353

                              Inge is the all around hitter and player today he's a great guy, he can hit for average, for power, for contact, he can field incredibly , well he can run when he wants (not counting yesterday).

                                Ummm... we have Lo Duca. So riddle me this. Why in the world would the Mets pick up Pudge's contract? How many catchers do we need? Lo Duca is just fine where he is at.
