Tigers Had Little Choice But to Make Deal

     Who knows whether Brandon Inge will ever play for the Detroit Tigers again.  His options are few considering he is hitting .174, but he lives in the Detroit area and his kids are in the schools, so trying to find some kind of a major league swing in Toledo is his best option at this point.  He is obviously thankful the Tigers gave him $10 million for two years after last season.  They may rue the day they ever did it, but it's done now.

     Wilson Betemit is a good risk, he's only 29, a switch hitter who hit .281 at Kansas City and the Tigers are desperate for some offense.  If he doesn't make it then they can try something else.  Obviously they need to try and find more pitching help before the July 31st trade deadline.  Regardless, they'll likely stay in the divisional race the rest of the way because no one else seems to be very good either.
