Today should be a great day. It is Championship Monday. Kentucky is expected to beat Kansas in the national championship game. I can’t wait to see that.
The Red Wings are finalizing things before making a final push towards the Stanley Cup playoffs. And in just a few days we get to see Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera and a real Tigers lineup hit the field against the Boston Red Sox.
And did I tell you the weather is getting nice?
There are so many things to think about or talk about as the spring blooms into full bloom. But do you know what I am going to end up talking about today on the Valenti and Foster Show on 971 The Ticket?
Yes, we will end up talking about a career .234 hitter because that is what this town does. We are all guilty of wasting time on the gift that keeps on giving.
We don’t know if the Tigers are going to cut him or keep him, release him or waive him. Will they buy him out or let this whole thing play out? We will talk Inge today on the radio because he conviently has a groin injury that Inge hurt recently. He had a similar injury during the offseason and he said it kept him from his workouts for four or five days.
If money or loyalty or name recognition were not a factor the Tigers should cut ties with Inge and give Danny Worth a try. Inge batted .197 last season and hitting .180 in spring training. Tigers manager Jim Leyland said the decision to keep Inge would be based on his hitting.
Well Helloooooooooo!! The dude is not hitting again. Inge said he is hitting the ball on the screws and is not getting breaks. I talked to someone in Lakeland and they said that might be true but Inge is hitting a lot of ground balls to short stop and lazy pop flies to the outfield. The Tigers need more from Inge or whomever takes his spot.
This isn’t a team playing baseball simply to entertain us. The Tigers are looking to win a World Series. They need as complete a team as possible to pull it off. Inge just isn’t cutting it.
