    No one will take Pudge with his contract.

    Awesome suggestion! I just said in another post to get a good pitcher and because I like Inge, I kind of hate Pudge right now. When he leaves, I'll like him again. Furcal would be a great signing.

    Inge is a very valuable player. How about this:

    Trade Pudge for an Ace or closer
    Move Inge to C
    Guillen to third
    Sign SS Furcal as a real leadoff man

    I'm glad to see all the responses to my post. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thinks he's that good. Keep posting!

    I like the guy. I like anybody you can call a 'gamer.'

    He is a hard worker, tough, and has shown a willingness to do anything and play anywhere to stay on the roster. He seems proud to wear the Old English D. Tiger management should never let him go, unless he reads this post and demands a big raise.

    On the flip side, he is probably not the best at any position but has shown himself to be better than average wherever he played. (That may not sound like a big compliment, but I would say the same thing about Pete Rose.)

    You probably remember that he came up as a catcher, but that is not his natural position. He learned to catch in order to make the bigs. I don't remember exactly, but think he was an outfielder up to that point.

    Third base is his until one of our "potential" guys actually lives up to it. Then he can have another position.

    He kind of reminds me of a Tommy Brookens in that he's a good guy and can field but his hitting is never quite good enough. He seemed to get get tired and his average really took a dive as the season wore on.
    Brandon is ok but not a game breaker. He does strike out a lot too.

    Put him at shortstop. He is a great fielder and since Guillen has knee trouble he would be able to play 3rd easier than short.

    Hey Ram.

    I personally love Inge. I wish he wasn't our starting 3B, as I'd prefer to see a big bat at the hot corner.

    Ideally I'd like to see Inge be a super sub. He can play nearly any position (and would be the #1 backup at each spot), so would get plenty of at bats in that role. If MLB had an award like the NBAs 6th Man Award, I think Brandon would be an annual recipient. Unfortuneately, I don't think he'd accept this - and demands to be a "starter".

    Almost as much as I'd like to see him in the sub role, I'd like to see him get back behind the plate. I know Pudge is there right now, but when he's gone (soon) Brandon would be great there as well. He'd be one of the better hitting catchers, and has a cannon. I'm just not sure he'd be able to step back into the catcher position after being away for several years. I also do have some reservations about how he'd call games.

    So, in my perfect world ....

    Inge is MLBs best sub for the next few years, spending time spelling nearly every position, in the cage & alot of time working with Pudge learning as much as possible about catching and calling games. When Pudges' contract is up, Inge will have logged recent catching innings and would be ready to step up full time there. I think in the long haul, this scenario would be advantageous for both the Tigers and Inge.
