Yuni’s nemesis? April 18, 2009

The highlights from yesterday’s game cast a new light on the disastrous events that happen when Yuniesky Betancourt and Brandon Inge get together.  There weren’t any injuries last night, but there were a pair of misplays that decided the game.  The highlight announcer thankfully glosses over Yuni’s weak attempt to field Inge’s grounder.  That glove slap led to Detroit’s early lead.

But fate is just.  Perhaps Yuni knew karma was with him when he hit a grounder at Inge near third base, forcing the utilityman to make a dreadful throw home.  Knowingly or not, Yuni’s choice of forcing Inge’s folly over actually earning a hit payed off–Inge, once again, proved to be the foolish villain.

M’s win!

Bring me the foot of Brandon Inge! June 1, 2008

Brandon Inge is the worst kind of baseball player.  He can’t stick with one position, frequently switching between catcher, third base, and the outfield.  If he had the drive of a guy like Yuniesky Betancourt, he’d stick with one position until he was demonstrably below average at it.  But no, he switches positions whenever he wants to or (rarely, I bet) when the manager asks him to.  Does versatility really help teams win ballgames?  The Detroit Tigers sure don’t seem to be winning much.  Against everyone except the Seattle Mariners.

Above all: Brandon Inge is mean-spirited because he accidentally stepped on Yuniesky Betancourt’s right index finger.  There, I said it.
