If you missed it, and I don’t blame you if you did because I’m probably the only insane person listening to pointless baseball games on the radio, Dan and Jim gave us a wonderful little story during today’s game broadcast.
Apparently, while the media was assembled in Leyland’s office for questions before the game, Inge came into his office and showed Leyland something his friend had sent him on his phone. He was laughing, Leyland started laughing after he showed him, then Inge finally let the assembled crowd in on the joke. It was a picture of Leyland and Cabrera laughing together with the caption “I just told Inge that he has a shot at playing second”.
Awwwwww. And how great it is that Inge seems to have a good sense of humor about the whole thing, enough so that he can laugh about it with Leyland. I’m working on a separate post about the second base fiasco, but I will mention how great it was to see Inge smack one out of the park (against the wind) right after Leyland repeated the whole “must hit or else” thing to the media.
