    I don't think there is a Tiger on that team who I have more respect for than Brandon Inge. Mainly because of all he went through with this organization. I remember the days when he was a great fielding catcher who couldn't hit a lick and on the verge of being traded because they just aquired Pudge and they had no position for him except as a fourth outfielder.

    To go from that to becoming what he is today is pretty awesome. Changing positions to Third base {and fielding it like an All Star, I might add} and becoming a decent power hitter to boot. He just keeps getting better year after year.

    You also have to feel happy for the guy now considering he played on all those recent crappy teams and never complained about it.

    Crede, Chavez, Inge, and Lowell are all having great seasons at 3B. Inge has become a top tier defensive 3Bman. He needs to improve his batting greatly, however. Slugging isnt bad, but his average and OBP are horrendous.(although both above his career average). I think a lot of this can be solved if he changed that bad K/BB ratio of his. If he becomes better in that facet, he could become a top tier 3rd baseman all around.

    I dont know about the assists record. But he also had 378 last year.
    He was right Evan. I was talking about those actually playing 3B and I believe Inge is better than ARod there. The reason I mentioned Inge's HRs was as an aside really. Someone had said they wished he would hit more so I pointed out his HR's. That's all.

Since there are few people "picking" it like Inge (not impossible for the lil' fellow to end up with 400 assits). We all know the handful of names, Crede, Chavez, ect., and even the biggest Yank honk would have to say this year A Rod is not amoung them.

    BTW has 400 assists happened from a 3rd baseman before??? I know the Tigers record is 389ish.

    Inge is having a great season, but lets not get out of hand.

    He's a better 3B man than ARod. Too bad people go only by the bat though, and because of that, they'll think ARod is the better 3B man.

    Inge has what, 26 homeruns now? I'd say he has the ability to hit.

    I think Inge is fine where he is....He has shown me enough to leave him at the hot corner for at least a few more years. He has one of the more patient eyes of the Tigers (not saying much), and if he can stay between the .250-.260 BA range, with the pop he does provide, I am not sure what everyone is complaining about. The days of the huge bat on the hot corner, have mostly gone the way of Dean Palmer, yes there are a few "stud" 3rd sackers. But these days, the premium seems to be on guys that can pick it. And, keep in mind Inge has an good shot of setting the single season assist record for Tiger 3Bmen (has 375 now, needs 389 I think to beat the orginal A Rod). The offense of MLB teams has been spread more throughout the line up (see all the SS that produce) these days.

    Thoughts to some of the posters, on this thread......I fear the day, Guillen should for whatever reason be the starting 3Bman, YOU FOLKS DON'T THINK GUILLEN MAKES ENOUGH THROWING ERRORS?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!! Guillens' next move should be to 1B sooner rather than later.

    Guillen to third
    Sign SS Furcal as a real leadoff man
    Nah, use Granderson as lead-off.
