re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I thought it was common knowledge if you want to actually watch guys talk about baseball MLB Network was the way to go. MLB Tonight = GOAT. Like the Red Zone channel except, well, it doesn't cost extra.

That is absolutely, 100% true.

I also enjoy Clubhouse Confidential.

As a Tigers fan, you might find this interesting:

I saw Inge hit a walkoff Grand Slam for the A's last season in Oakland against the Blue Jays shortly after Oakland acquired him for 3B.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Inge was quite the polarizing figure in Detroit. People either loved him dearly or hated his guts. While he was really only an 8 or 9 hitter, it's amazing he got as much press as he did. When he struggled the year+ before the Tigers waived him, people got on him hard. Still a decent MLB player that could get a starting spot on bottom 10 teams in the league or as a quality bench player.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

We just started getting MLB network on campus this year. Watched Hot Stove this morning. Good talk about the Royals.

As for dem Mets, I'm pleased that they're putting Bobby Parnell in as the closer.

Yes, I remember that time period well, watching the occasional Tigers game on national TV or whenever, and all of the talk of Inge failing to produce. You're right, though, and he seemed to add a lot to the A's in 2012, maybe a bit more with the intangibles in the clubhouse than anything else, really. (That and 3B has been a gaping hole for the A's since Eric Chavez wasn't continually on the Disabled List, so he was really needed.)

***

John Shea on Chronicle Live, discussing Tim Lincecum:
“His upper body is supposedly much stronger with some weight training and some trainers, who helped him out for the first time in the off-season--the Giants insisted that.”

Andrew Baggarly ‏@CSNBaggs
"Lincecum upbeat after 1st ‘pen. Said it’s evident after first time off a mound that strength training will help him get over his front leg."

Alex Pavlovic @AlexPavlovic
"Lincecum's catcher for first spring bullpen: Buster Posey."

Janie McCauley @JanieMcCAP
"Lincecum pats Posey on lower back after quick chat and handshake following first spring bullpen session together for #SFGiants."

As someone who always looks for who's getting the "Best Shape of His Life!" stories, it's grand to see Lincecum be given that honorary annual spotlight. I'll take it, Baseball Gods, I'll take it.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

So... odds Lincecum gets another DUI(is that just alcohol, or any drug?) this season?

DUI is anything, but most of the time alcohol.
