More on Brandon Inge

Just can't stop posting my displeasure about this chump. Let's post a few numbers to show why it pisses me off.

Last year against LHP he hit: .245 compared to his .170 BA againsst RHP. Terrible no matter what.

2010: .254 vs. LHP against .245 vs. RHP

This is considered "good hitting LHP" by Leyland?

I will be getting my I <3 Inge t-shirt, or another few funny t shirts soon I think. It's beyond just laughable anymore.

Detroit Lions Players Suffer From "Failure to Hide Their Weed"

It would be no shock for anyone to find out that many of the players in the NFL smoke marijuana. What would be a shock is seeing them repeatedly get busted for possession of it rather than just failed drug tests. Drug tests are "typically" random so they could always fail those. Being caught with a stash of weed on you out in puublic though seems to be quite a task for anyone that smokes it. At least in my mind it would be quite idiotic to be caught with it in public seeing how it is illegal and you shouldn't be doing it out in the open.

That doesn't matter for our beloved Detroit Lions though. Particularly our draft class from 2011.

Not one, not two, but 3 Detroit Lions players have been busted with weed since the beginning of the year. 2 of which from our 2011 draft class in Mikel LeShoure, and #1 pick Nick Fairley. The other being reserve offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath was arrested for simple possession of marijuana after he was spotted on a hotel surveillance camera putting two blunts in the drawer of a hallway dresser.

Fairley was booked today while speeding. Smoking weed and speeding. How dumb can you be?

LeShoure on the other hand wins the prize for dumbest player. He wasn't caught once, but TWICE in the past 2 months. First in February for possession where he paid a fine around $500 and nothing came of it. HE was sentenced on March 1. Then just a few weeks later the idiot got pulled over AGAIN, but this time he tried to eat it all. The officer found him with weed in his teeth, all over his shirt, and on the console. 2 times in less than 3 months! I can't imagine most people that smoke have been caught twice in their LIFE, much less the same year. Charles Rogers #2 right here folks. BTW...LeShoure has never played in an NFL game. If he's not careful he'll be wearing prison flip flops soon.

Janoris Jenkins won't be a Lion anytime soon now I can guarantee that much.

Inge To Stay on Team and Play Against Lefties?

You have gotta be kidding me.

This is all I've heard about today though. Apparently Henning mentioned that Inge would still be on the team and that he would play against LHP. Something that isn't even a boost to his normal play really. This is one of the ugly PR lies that the Tigers spread in regards to Inge. Like last year when they brought him back to the team from the minors when he was put on waivers. He wasn't even hitting .200 against LHP I don't think, but he was hitting about .150 against RHP so he was CLEARLY better against LHP right?

Well..this is just how it goes with him. He';s popular and a cash cow. HAs to be making the team money somehow so they keep him around. He is a terrible hitter though and his defense isn't getting any better with all his injuries and knee problems the last few years.

RETIRE INGE> PLEASE! Go sell some pool supplies and a Pool Cover in your retirement. I mean you can't possibly be making that much in baseball right? Oh wait...they pay you like you're a real player. MUCH more than a real player don't htye. You won't need to work. Worst player per dollar I can think of ever.
