You mean to say that since they are currently on the hook for $6M, the Tigers might try to trump up his value in hopes that another club might share in his salary burden (over the veterans minium)?
That's unpossible! The Pizza Man wants to have Brando's babies in a 3-way with ol' Smokie! That is the only true explanation.

A game or two, a bunch of bitching and Worth's development.
Inge racked up all those WAR because he started at third base for 2/3 of the season. No one expects him to get that sort of playing time this year.
Very few people expect him to head north with the team.
Despite Dumbo's ridiculous comments a few weeks ago.........

UM, Green Bay and Chicago teams all have one thing in common: They all suck
Inge hit .333 on Wed. going 1-3 including an RBI line shot double to the gap. He's as good as starting opening day with a performance like that.
I like this article....no bones about it, they have no choice. I think at this point Dombrowski is looking for the easiest exit strategy....doesn't appear there is an easy one.
The way things go with Inge, how much you want to bet he goes on a tear these last few games with a few bombs and RBI's, etc., some diving def. plays and makes it almost impossible to cut bait.....that is the kind of drama that always happens with Inge.
Or on the way to the locker room a hooded, suspicious man cranks Worth on the knee with a lead pipe!
Thought this quote from Inge from yesterday's Lynn Henning column was worth reposting. He my be the most delusional player in all of pro sports.
"But one thing I've made clear is that I don't make decisions off one bad year. I'm kind of tired of selling myself short. And I know I'm a lot better hitter than other guys out there."
Two obvious questions for Brandon - how many bad years do you make decisions off of? Because you've had so many. And....can you name even one other non-pitcher that is a worse hitter than you are (and Gerald Laird doesn't count)?

Well, something's a brewin' in Lakeland - no Inge in the lineup and Oliver was sent down to AAA today. Leaves 5th starter for Below, Smyly, or outside the organization. Situation could be resolved soon.
Not sure it tells us much on Inge. Even if he makes the team he isn't going to be a starter. Cabby and 3rd and Raburn has easily locked down the starting 2B job this Spring. Today's lineup is the opening day lineup minus Cabby will be back for Kelly. It's still Inge vs. Worth for final utility role. The most telling thing about today's lineup is that Dirks over Thomas now looks like a done deal.
I guess when you makea few million bucks you get delusions of grandeur. But it's all cool - the Marlboro man says Brandon is swinging the bat well.
Inge will be the 5th starter. He's got "blacksmith arms".
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
I chuckled, and then for a half a second got really worried and thought "they wouldn't, would they?"
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
It isn't Inge's fault and he doesn't deserve to get cut! Last year he just wasn't hitting the ball hard enough, but he was getting it good. This year he is hitting it hard, just right at the fielder. It's just bum luck. Combine this with the fact that pitchers for some reason pitch to him as if he were Babe Ruth, instead of giving him meat balls up the middle like he deserves, our community is going to get SCREWED out a great guy who loves his kids. He's still a youngster. I'm sure if he goes north with the team, he'll be back to hitting .300 with 30 bombs in no time flat.

Frankly, I don't know why he didn't stay at third and challenge that Latino at 3rd. He's just as good as him. Brandon can get into a groove and hit .315 with 25 bombs easy. Oh that still wouldn't be as good as the drunk? Well, like Bo always said, defense wins championships. I mean how many Gold Gloves has the new guy won compared to Brandon? Oh, the same amount? Well still he's not half the community guy Brandon is! Inge 4eva!
What the hell is a latino? You talkin' 'bout the drunk Mexican, who's probably illegal, that took a job from a hard workin' American?
I bet the vast majority of "downriver trash" hate Inge at this point.
The only time I read/hear irrational Inge love it's coming from people making fun of Inge and his fans. He is semi-obnoxious and he does have some fans, but I don't think his fans are talking about him hitting .315. They probably just think he's a good bench player.
Keep knocking down those straw men, though. Nothing else to do until April 5 anyway.
Inge just GIDP to end the game
Nationals win 5-3
Not his fault.
his BA is hovering around .170 this spring
Not his fault. If the pitchers and fielders were fair, he'd be hitting .300 like normal.
you mean if they weren't minor league pitchers?
Pitching to him as if he were Babe Ruth? Yes.
