      Heh. 1.5 games out now. Cleveland has lost, what, 7 straight? All this with Inge out and the Mudhens in the lineup.

        Is Inge out of the lineup really that much of a blow?

            It depends. The first two Sox runs on Sunday were the result of plays that I think Inge would have made and Worth didn't. Worth made a couple nice plays in the field later in the game though. It's probably a wash at the plate though.

              Are you remembering that he doesn't have knees anymore when you're factoring his fielding in?

                Inge is an above average-to-very good fielder. That does not do enough to offset the fact that he is an absolute train wreck with a bat in his hands.

                  He was. Every advanced stat has him around average now. Throw in his bat, and he's negative overall.

                    Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

                      8-1 final.

                      21 runs the past 2 nights. We could have used a few of these earlier. That series in Cleveland comes to mind.

                        Usually it's at Comerica, but something about playing Texas brings out the best in the Tigers' bats.

                          You could leave Inge out of the statement and Tiger fans of old would think of guys like Don Wert and Aurelio Rodriguez.

                          Oh- and these are quality wins over Texas. Decent pitching and timely hitting (even for .200 Raburn last night) can beat anybody, but Texas can be downright scary, even if their pitching seems to be somewhat average these days.

                              huge wins. HUGE. I'm getting fired up to play Cleveland with a division lead at stake.

                                How we got to the World Series in 1968 with Don Wert hitting .200 and Ray Oyler hitting .135 borderlines on beyond belief. And that was the left side of our infield more often than not. Oyler actually went 0-for-August, and SLUGGED .186 for the season.
