INGE Owners..... It's time to worry.

If the man is not hitting it make no difference (probably helps actually).

If the man is hitting he will not stay in the 9 hole for too long.

It is always a function of the hitters around him and his plate appearances. He will lose 1 AB a game. His value goes down. To think that it will drop significantly though is unjustified imo given the Tiger lineup and the fact that he is hardly a super-slugger to start with. He does not steal bases in either. He is not being moved from 2 or 3 in the order to the 9-hole but from leadoff to the 9-hole. He still has to drive in the Grandesons of the league.

And like I said, once he starts hitting, he will be moved back up anyway in all liklihood and there is likely no better C option lieing around on your wire, so there is nothing you can do about it. Just like with any other slumping hitter, you have to hope he comes out of it. If he doesn't, he is pretty much worthless no matter where he bats in the lineup.

1 less AB is a big deal - before you were getting 4 ABs a game, and now you're getting 3 (or 5 vs 4). That's a quarter of your production gone, right there, and that's a big deal for anyone. All of a sudden, the argument that he plays every day doesn't work, because catchers who hit up the order will get more ABs than him anyway. I wouldn't be glossing over this if I were an Inge owner.

To answer your question, I would take Kendall and Pierzynski over Inge, but I would have before the demotion as well.

Well the way he's been playing, 0-3 with 2 Ks is better than 0-4 with 3 Ks, so just look on the bright side. :-D

Some of you guys need to take a math lesson. Only one AB per game? Might not mean a great deal if there were 50 plate appearances every day. When you're talking three as opposed to four or four as opposed to five, it's obviously significant just in terms of pure numbers.

I've allready dropped him in a few leagues for Javy. I can't believe people drop studs like him just because of an injury.

Damn, I'm glad I play with Idiots. ;-D

In answer to whoever's question, yes I would drop Inge for Kendall followed by Pierzynski.

I'm getting off the Inge-train myself... right now. I was going to keep him around for the days when Lopez isn't playing, but there's more valuable opportunities on the wire for me.
