DY batting leadoff?
I guess I hadnt thought of that one yet, but whos to say it wont happen with the way Tram has been juggling the lineup.
Anyway - regarding Inge batting leadoff... Tram feels the need to shuffle his lineup A LOT. I can go back and give you my opinion on why in each game he did what he did with the lineup, but the point to take out of it is that no one is settled in any one spot.
Nook had been playing well above himself prior to the ARI series, and I assume Tram benched him and moved him to the 9 spot yesterday as a motivational move - trying to jumpstart him again. As long as Nook is hitting, Tram has been going with him batting leadoff followed by Inge in the 2 spot.
If its an overcast day Tram will use Inge as the #2 hitter, unless of course its a Tuesday or Thursday then he will obviously bat him 9th. On bankers holidays he'll bat 2nd unless its a LHP then he'll hit leadoff - especially when the grass has been freshly mowed.
The point is Inge is being moved around the lineup often - as are most of the Tigers.
