      See ya Inge. Should have dumped this guy 3 years ago.

      DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have acquired third baseman Wilson Betemit from the Kansas City Royals for two minor leaguers.

      The 29-year-old Betemit has hit .281 with three home runs and 27 RBIs in 57 games with the Royals this year. The Tigers have been hoping third baseman Brandon Inge would break out of his lengthy slump, but he's hitting .177 going into Wednesday night's game against the Oakland Athletics.

      Detroit announced the trade with the Royals just over an hour before the first pitch Wednesday.

      Kansas City receives left-hander Antonio Cruz and catcher Julio Rodriguez. The 19-year-old Cruz has gone 2-6 with a 3.11 ERA with Class A West Michigan in 2011.

      The 21-year-old Rodriguez has hit .283 at Class A Lakeland.

      I like Inge man he is a decent third baseman...kinda lacked in the batting average but he is a cool dude. I got to meet him a couple years ago

      Every team in the majors has a "decent" 3B... but every single team has a 3B (or hell, any everyday position player) that hits over .200. The fascination that Tigers fans had with this guy is beyond me and has been for YEARS.

      Let's take emotion out of this. Everyone knows he's a "great guy" and visits kids in the hospital. But he's gotten a free pass around here for far too long. He pissed and moaned when they signed Pudge because he was the everyday catcher at that time and they were "taking his job". He pissed and moaned when they signed Cabrera because the thought was Miguel would play 3B... how quickly people forget that off-season where he cried and pouted and didn't want to report to spring training... hell, he even told management to trade him. Problem was he was completely untradeable so he was stuck.

      Bottom line is, he's an average guy defensively who is an abomination at the plate. He got everyone in this town to believe that it was OK for a major league 3B to hit .220. I would've taken a fat, drunk Cabrera at 3B with the range of Jimmy Volmer from South Park and let him commit an error a game, because I know what he brings to the table with a bat. He's gonna hit .330 and hit 35+ homers and knock in 110+ runs.

      Think about it like this: is there a starting 3B in the majors RIGHT NOW who wouldn't be an overall improvement over Inge? And remember, his glove hasn't been as good as people wanna believe this year. I can't think of a single one.

      For the past couple of years every time this guy steps up to the plate I have turned the channel, I didn’t want to witness another whiff. I haven’t checked the stats, but I’m sure he’s near the top of the league for leaving runners in scoring position.

      Hell, look at the guys hitting in front of him. Peralta and Martinez are both hitting over .310 and Avila is probably around .280 or so... there's probably 105 total runs scored between the 3 of them. I saw a stat a couple weeks ago and I think that Inge was hitting below .100 with guys in scoring position.

      I think the Dombrowski free pass is about to get revoked by the majority of Tiger fans... between that awful Benoit signing and then giving Sizemore up for nothing (since they just designated Purcey for assignment this afternoon), he's got some questions to answer IMO.

      Sizemore went to the high school my brother graduated from here in Chesapeake

      But really Benoit has mediocre stuff at best...he has been hanging around phil coke too much
