    Actually, I agree with johnbuckformvp. Inge is definately poor in the offensive areas. In 2003 he batted .203..... And yeah, his defense is over rated.
    But...he hit almost 30 homeruns this year. With all due respect does "2003" really matter now? Can I assume that batting .203 he was down at the bottom of the order? Isn't getting a hit every two out of ten at bats good enough to make the big leagues? How much did he walk? What was his OBP? (rhetorical questions by the way...I can just go look up the answers myself)

    So did all the other third basemen in both leagues who didn't make it to the World Series. That includes "ARod". Should they all be upgraded?

    BTW...how is a five foot nothing guy supposed to catch a wild throw from the pitcher that he's not expecting, especially one that's 20 feet above his head and a mile down the foul line? Inge is good..but not that good. Oh yeah...and he's better than ARod.:gt

    Look at the date of the post you quoted.

    Brandon Inge had 398 Assists this season, that's a Tiger record. In fact, it was 8 all time. Only (2) Craig Nettles (2) Brooks Robinson, Harlond Clift, Mike Schmdt, and Doug DeCinces had more in a single season. In comparison, Alex Rodriguez had 262 assists this season. That's 136 more baserunners. The worst part is that Inge's errors are usually costly.

    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).

    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

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

    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).
