You can tell spring training has started because there’s plenty to write about. Jason Beck went wild recently and seems like he’s writing a handful of columns a day. His latest is a nice piece on Brandon Inge and his most recent move to third base. I know he hasn’t been able to hit much, but I’ve always been a fan of Brandon’s, if not for his couple of solid seasons he gave us at third base as well as the fact that he’s been with Detroit longer then any other player.
There’s another story on how Clete Thomas won’t be 100% ready to take part in the festivities because of the Tommy John surgery he had. This opens things up a bit for maybe a guy like Freddy Guzman to slip in and possibly secure a spot on the team. Of course it’ll probably be somewhat short lived and odds are the Tigers will go with a multi-purpose guy like Ryan Raburn who can play anywhere. It also depends on how many pitchers Leyland brings up to Detroit.
Finally, there’s a story on Armando Galarraga and his exceptional season in 2008
. A lot of people are betting that he won’t repeat and I hope he proves them all wrong.
