From #Hurdled to Manager of the Year

Clint Hurdle won the BBWAA NL Manager of the Year award on Tuesday night, as expected. He dominated the voting, earning 25 of the 30 first place votes (and the 5 voters that didn’t put him first for some strange reason voted him second). I summarized my thought’s on Hurdle’s accomplishment when he was awarded the Sporting News Manager of the Year award two weeks ago, but I...

Game 2013. Playoffs 4: A’s at Tigers

Well, here we are facing elimination, which is never a pleasant thing. The series so far has been a bit dispiriting, which is why I am muttering to myself and throwing the F-bomb around to keep myself pumped up while I type this. And what the $%*! are you looking at? This isn’t supposed to be how it goes: the Tigers were built on starting pitching and heavy lumber, sacrificing...

Pirates Activate James McDonald from 60 Day DL, DFA Him Immediately

Sometimes a guy gets cut or traded and I’m kind of sad.  Not necessarily for the team or anything, but for the player.  Players like Brandon Inge were infuriating, but the game has passed him by.  That’s life.  Still I was glad to see him go for the team’s sake. Ian Snell is another.  I’m…

First Pitch: The Bench Has (Almost) Been Fully Upgraded

One of the big areas of need for the Pirates leading up to the deadline was the bench. For a long stretch the Pirates had a weak hitting bench, with Michael McKenry, Brandon Inge, Clint Barmes, and Travis Snider all struggling to hit. The only other hitter on the bench was either Gaby Sanchez, who can’t hit right-handers, or Garrett Jones, who can’t hit left-handers, depending...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals – Game 99

I’m actually kind of pissed that I didn’t think of it when I made my Brandon Inge post yesterday.  Therefore Shoemaker wins this round by putting an awesome quote from Twitter in his recap of last night’s game. “We’re going to fight on. We’re going survive. Today, we celebrate our INGEdependance Day.” — Robert Buckles…

With Jason Grilli's injury last night and Neil Walker's rehab stint over, it there was at least one roster move expected today. The Pirates made two moves today; Vic Black has been called up from Indianapolis to replace Grilli on the roster with the suddenly ubiquitous "forearm discomfort," and Brandon Inge has been designated for assignment  Black was the...

Brandon Inge and Victor Black Are Freed…. In Different Ways

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Oakland A’s – Game 89

I’m not sure what was worse.  That game, Brandon Inge, or Twitter afterwards. People were screaming collapse.  The usual suspects were writing it off as just a few bad breaks.  Those same usual suspects were using the same tired mantras they used last year too.  When they said it wasn’t a collapse.

First Pitch: Brandon Inge is a Leader, But the Pirates Have Different Needs

Brandon Inge doesn’t have much value outside of his leadership, and the Pirates don’t need his leadership. (Photo Credit: David Hague) Brandon Inge has started the last two games with Neil Walker out. Brandon Inge also had a .190 average and a .464 OPS coming into tonight’s game. It’s not like there’s a lot of upside to be had there either. Inge had a combined .606 OPS...

Brandon Inge wears tiger eye contacts, looks extremely creepy

On Wednesday the Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Brandon Inge put in some creepy tiger eye contacts to change his eyes against the Philadelphia Phillies.  It looks like the contacts were irritating his eyes because they were red on the outside, making him looking even crazier. [USA Today]

Brandon Inge is Making the Most of Life on the Bench

At 36 years old, Brandon Inge is transitioning from one-time every day player, into the backup player he should have always been. Don't let the All-Star game selection in 2009 fool you. He's the most David Ecksteiny player to David Eckstein since David Eckstein was David Ecksteining all over the place. That's two ways to turn David  Eckstein in a verb. This post is now...
