IF/OF Brandon Inge Released from Tigers

Slumping third baseman Brandon Inge was released by the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

The 34-year-old Inge is in his 12th season in the majors, all with Detroit. He played mostly third base for the Tigers, but has also caught, played the outfield and second base.

Inge is a .234 career hitter with 140 homers and 589 RBIs.

I would love to see the Mets pick up Inge with the lack of outfielders the Mets have in depth. Inge is also versatile and could also serve as a emergency catcher and a backup David Wright at 3rd , Murphy at 2nd..

Tigers lead the pack for Gio Gonzalez, Willing to trade Pitching Prospect Turner in deal...

According to Jon Heyman of , the Tigers are willing to trade pitching prospect Jacob Turner in a deal for the Athletics' Gio Gonzalez.

Turner is one of the better pitching prospects in the game and would be a fine centerpiece in a deal for the left-hander.

As Heyman notes, the competition for Gonzalez is stiff, but the Tigers might be in the driver's seat if they're indeed willing to part with their top trade chip. The Mets, Mariners, Marlins, Reds, Red Sox, Rangers and Nationals are among the teams interested in Gonzalez.

The Mets have to be leaning on a Murphy, Parnell, and Niese package... I can't imagine the Mets offering Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy in a deal unless the Mets get 1B Deric Barton back in return.

Who is the Hottest Team in Baseball?

Who is the hottest team in Baseball?

Would you expect to find the Tigers at the top of the list?
They win..... Then they win some more.  That's why I think they will win the World Series..(Yeah, I went on a limb here!).

And then, just because they've forgotten how to do anything else apparently, they keep on winning. The Tigers are 6-2 when Doug Fister starts. They've now won 10 games in a row -- for the first time in 43 years.

Over their past 13 games, they're 12-1. Over their past 18 games, they're 15-3. Over their past 24 games, they're 20-4. In the 40 games since they traded for Doug Fister, they're 29-11.

So they're not just hot, ladies and gentlemen. They're a five-alarm inferno. You need a potholder just to grab the remote to click on their games these days. "Right now," said one AL executive this week, "they're the best team in baseball."

Watch Out Yankees and Look Out Red Sox,  looks like their might be a new team in charge in the AL....and in the MLB.

Mets Hire New Strength and Conditioning Coach

Mets hire Brad Andress as the new strength and conditioning coordinator. Andress's resume includes a nine year stint with the Colorado Rockies from 2000-2008 . He also spent ten years as the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Tigers and four years in the same role at the University of Michigan. Andress, who graduated from Penn State with a B.A. in exercise physiology and received a Master’s in exercise physiology from Michigan, spent the last two years in private business as a strength and conditioning consultant. An offensive guard, Andress played four years under Joe Paterno at Penn State and was a member of the 1982 national championship team, which beat Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Andress replaces Rick Slate this season. The rest of the Mets training staff remains intact, unfortunately.
