Just a quick note about the Dodgers' interest in Brandon Inge. There is none. That's it. Jayson Stark from the Winter Meetings put an end to that talk.
Inge suffered through a very tough start of this past season. It took him until his 8th game to collect one hit! He finally got over the Mendoza line on May 9th against Seattle. He ended up with a .236 AVG, 17 HR, 71 RBI. With the exception of his .287 AVG in 2004, he's never hit over .261. Granted he did hit 27 HR and 83 RBI in 2006, so the potential for power numbers may still be there.
My take is that I'd much rather let LaRoche and Garciaparra platoon than trade for Inge. He's not worth it anymore.
