Who would cut Lou Gehrig?

oakland athletics get brandon inge from detroit

The Tigers didn’t exactly cut Lou Gehrig when they let go of Brandon Inge a couple weeks ago. However, Inge hit his fourth homer for the A’s this past weekend and knocked in four runs for the fourth time in five games, a feat matched by only the Iron Horse (Gehrig).

The day after Inge joined Gehrig’s elite company he could be seen chatting with Tigers third base coach (and former manager of the White Sox and Pirates), Gene Lamont, between innings as he warmed up. I wish I could have heard what they were saying.

I practically lived at the Oakland Coliseum from 1980 until 1986. Saturday’s game was only my third time back since 1986 and first time in well over a decade. It still feels like home.
