Earlier this week, the Tigers traded a couple of random minor leaguers to the Kansas City Royals for 3rd baseman Wilson Betemit. They were hoping to upgrade the position, but have apparently only found Inge’s clone so far. Betemit is 1 for 7 in a Tigers uniform and, even worse, let this derp happen during last night’s game.
To make room for Inge 2.0, the Tigers sent the original version to the scrap heap Toledo. Inge probably wasn’t too happy about the move, but at least he took it like a man during this interview.
No, I don’t think Betemit actually sucks. I like the deal and I hope that the team can continue to run train on the rest of the AL Central like they are on the Twins tonight.
