I'll never be confused for a big Infante fan, but loved the hustle right there! Hard one-hopper to third is bobbled and Omar beats it out.
I couldn't be more over Omar if I wanted to be. InFANTe? More like InCANTe, am I rite?
Paulo Orlando tripled to center. Runner on third with none out and Omar Infante due up.
Omar Infante has his first hit of the season. The Royals have something cooking here in the third. Expect Escobar to bunt.
And Paulo Orlando has now been on base more times this season than Omar Infante
And I see Omar Infante. I still like him too. But not more than Ian. Kinsler.
They are reviewing if Omar Infante caught a ball that led to a double play either way.
Volquez threw Abreu a fastball in a fastball count and the pitch got smoked; right at Omar Infante. Inning-ending DP.
Score that L4-6-3. Omar Infante slipped but still grabbed Jose Abreu's line drive, flipped to the bag and throw to 1st doubled off Cabrera.
Paulo Orlando gets a hit before Omar Infante. That's not a question. I'm telling you.

As great of a start as the Royals have had, Omar Infante is on his last legs. If I'm Ned Yost I'd take a hard look at Christian Colon at 2nd
Chase Utley is more washed up than omar infante at this point, its 2015 newb. Do you even watch baseball

Hey ..how many runners does Ofer Infinity. .uh i mean omar infante plan on stranding this year?
Starting a list of people who have as many hits as Omar Infante so far this season. I'll start: Me.
Omar Infante already has made the final out of an inning 7 times so far. Going to be a long year for him.
In 15 total innings so far this year Omar Infante has made the last out in 7 of them. Wow.
Omar Infante and his contract are more or less the baseball equivalent of Brad Stuart. That's probably not hyperbolic either.
Omar Infante is now the club donkey...
Folks, this is stupid. Omar Infante is more concerned about his WAR than his RBI's. A player that cares about RBI's gets it done there.
N0mar Infante right now. Let's step up Omar! More O's than a bowl of Cheerios on that stat line
Omar Infante is a really good hitter with 2 outs if you need to go *** and want to avoid the between inning lines
It may be true that pitchers don't have to hit in the AL, but unfortunately Omar Infante still does.

Guthrie, Royals win 10th straight, edge Tigers 2-1 DETROIT (AP) — Alex Gordon’s grounder up the middle looked like a routine out — until it hit second base and took a wacky bounce, allowing the game’s first run to score. With breaks like that, it’s no wonder the Kansas City Royals have won 10 in a row. Omar Infante added a solo homer and Jeremy Guthrie pitched impressively into the seventh inning, helping the Royals extend their longest winning streak in 20 years with a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. Kansas City has outpitched, outhit and outfielded the Tigers in taking the first three games of this series — so the Royals have no reason to apologize for a little luck along the way. “Baseball’s a funny game — you’ve got to take full advantage of those,” Kansas City’s Eric Hosmer said. “We’re not complaining about it either.” The AL Central-leading Royals have not won this many games in a row since a run of 14 in 1994. They extended their division lead over t ...
The hottest teams in baseball are from Missouri ... Kansas City Royals beat Detroit Tigers 11-8 to pull within half-game DETROIT (AP) — Omar Infante showed the Detroit Tigers what they're missing. Infante hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning and had an RBI single in a four-run fifth against former teammate Justin Verlander, helping the Kansas City Royals beat the Tigers 11-8 Monday night. Infante became expendable in Detroit last November when the franchise traded first baseman Prince Fielder to Texas for second baseman Ian Kinsler. The next month, Infante signed a $30.25 million, four-year contract with the Royals, and their manager is glad he did. "I didn't really think much about Omar last year with the lineup that they had," Royals skipper Ned Yost acknowledged. "I would try to pitch around this guy and pitch around this guy to get to Omar, and Omar constantly just beat our brains in offensively. At about the midway point, I started realizing how really good he was." With 90-plus games left thi ...
Despite Paul Konerko's HR to avoid a shutout, it was all Royals. HRs by Mike Moustakas (solo) and Billy Butler (2-run), as well as RBIs by Butler, Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Omar Infante, and Eric Hosmer helps the Royals beat the White Sox 9-1. White Sox are 33-36.
Guthrie snaps winless streak in Royals’ 7-2 win CHICAGO (AP) — Lorenzo Cain had a two-run double to highlight a five-run first inning, Jeremy Guthrie pitched into the sixth inning and the Kansas City Royals extended their winning streak to five games with a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Guthrie (3-6) allowed two runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings to snap an 11-game winless streak. Guthrie’s last win was on April 9, against Tampa Bay. Kansas City's Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler each had two RBIs, including a run-scoring single in the first inning. Jose Quintana (3-7) never recovered from the slow start, allowing six runs and eight hits in six innings. Jose Abreu went 1 for 4 with an RBI for the White Sox. The Royals staked Guthrie to a five-run lead before he took the mound. The first four batters — Nori Aoki, Omar Infante, Hosmer and Butler — all singled to make it 2-0 and fifth-place hitter Alex Gordon followed with a double to right field to make it 3-0. After Quintana ...
Anyone that knows me well, knows I'm a die hard tiger fan. But let's be honest here. We only won the worst division in baseball by one game last year, then to top it off we lose Omar Infante, Joaquin Benoit, Jhonny Peralta, and Prince Fielder (disregard the playoffs) who ALL had near all-star type seasons last year. We in return fill that with Kinsler (good player), Sloppy Joe, and minor leaguers. Unless they pull off something drastic, this is our Detroit Tigers :-(
Pretty good autographing weekend for me. I got Justin Maxwell, Mike Moustakas, and Omar Infante at Werner Park.
Breaking Sports News: The Kansas City Royals now have doubled their home run output for the season -- Omar Infante hit one out in Houston, giving KC two home runs in 12 games.

Astros face off against another interesting pitcher tonight. Kansas City Royal youngster Yordano Ventura (DOB 6/3/91 thats right 22 years old) will be throwing heat in the triple digits and as long as he has control keeping his pitch somewhere near the 77002 zip code he should be striking out the Astros. Ventura might have the fastest pitch out of starting MLB pitchers. He has been clocked throwing strikes near 103 MPH. Astros will start Lucas Harrell who for fantasy fans has the lowest cost out of any starting pitcher today due in part because he is not expected to pitch many innings, pitch many strike outs, keep Royals from scoring or win. Vegas has the Astros as another huge underdog but I'm taking them today. Harrell is going to be recording outs by ground balls and the Astros are going to get enough hits late in the game to win. So what Harrell allowed a lot of runs in Toronto. The Blue Jays are legit. Harrell will be ok against Kansas City but he probably should avoid Omar Infante. If Infa ...
The Kansas City Royals find themselves struggling to score runs, and this poor run production is costing them games. The team is tied for twenty-eighth in the league in runs scored, despite a middle of the pact average.Kansas City has scored just 28 runs in their nine games. They have just one homerun, and 15 extra-base hits, both of which rank dead last in baseball.It is interesting that it is not the lack of hitting that is the problem. Catcher Salvador Perez is fifth in the American League with a .393 average. Second baseman Omar Infante is tenth at .346, and Norichika Aoki is also above .300; .303 in fact. Only three Royals players are struggling out of the gate, although they are all really struggling. 3B Mike Moustakas is just 3-30, and SS Alcides Escobar is hitting just .167 and DH Billy Butler is at .194. However, they are the exception, and not the rule.While the hitting has looked good for the most part, the issue has become their lack of clutch hitting. The Royals are hitting just .227 as a tea ...
After losing out on the final spot in the Kansas City Royals rotation to Yordano Ventura, Danny Duffy was sent down to Omaha to stay ready in case he was needed. At the time, it was expected that Duffy would come up either when one of the starters was injured, or to provide a boost to the rotation in the second half. If Duffy was able to start pitching deeper into games, then that would be a bonus. Feb 24, 2014; Surprise, AZ, USA; Kansas City Royals pitcher Danny Duffy poses for a portrait during photo day at Surprise Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports That plan lasted for exactly one minor league start. Duffy was brought up before yesterday’s game to be a part of the Royals bullpen, serving as the only left handed reliever option at this point. The promotion of Duffy once again gives the Royals a seven man bullpen, as Johnny Giavotella was sent back to Omaha with Omar Infante being ready for game action. The timing of the move is curious. Tim Collins and Francisley Bueno were b ...

Royals' Infante Hit in Face by Pitch From Bell: Royals 2B Omar Infante hit in face by pitch...
Only five games left on today's schedule, and one -- San Diego at Cleveland -- is in weather jeopardy. So delay as long as you can before you start Corey Kluber, Jason Kipnis or Nick Swisher for the Tribe. SP-wise, it's slim pickings with a Coors Field game among those left on the docket (needless to say, totally avoid Felipe Paulino and Jordan Lyles). If Mike Moore's command issues are too risky for you (as they are for me), Jason Vargas and Scott Kazmir probably are the best of the bunch. John Lackey also could be in line for a W, facing Tanner Scheppers off his horrible debut start, and now at Fenway. You'll likely see many Rockies lineup stacks tonight. Beyond the obvious CarGo and Tulo, red-hot Charlie Blackmon, Michael Cuddyer and still-reasonably-priced Wilin Rosario and Nolan Arenado can work. And don't forget the White Sox, either. Adam Eaton and Jose Abreu leading the list. I also like Big Papi and hot Mike Napoli for the Sox; Salvador Perez and bargain-play Omar Infante for the Royals.
Elbow still pains the Royals' Omar Infante - Hilton Head Island Packet
And of course Omar Infante walks in a run, and now Eric Hosmer is up with the bases loaded.
Kansas City Royals make series of moves ahead of Monday's 2014 season opener KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Royals placed right-handers Louis Coleman and Luke Hochevar on the disabled list as part of a series of moves that set their roster for Monday's season opener in Detroit. The Royals also returned infielder Jason Donald to minor league camp, which means that second baseman Omar Infante appears ready to start the season, and released catcher Ramon Hernandez from his minor league contract following Saturday's exhibition game in Detroit. Earlier on Sunday, the Royals sold the rights to left-hander Everett Teaford to the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization when it became clear he was not going to make the team. The moves leave Kansas City with 39 players on its 40-man roster, and that the club will open the season with 11 pitchers on the 25-man roster rather than the 12 that was anticipated. Coleman, who has a bone bruise and sprain on the middle finger of his right hand, is expected to be a key ...
Royals second baseman Omar Infante passed his final playing test in a Minor League game on Sat
By Marc Normandin In just about a month, it will be a new baseball season, and that means it's also time for new baseball lineups. We're here to help you get acquainted (or reacquainted) with the best of the best of those lineups, as time and a flurry of off-season moves has served to rearrange the batting orders we knew into something new, and more importantly, something we can rank. Let's look at the top six lineups in the game as of right this moment. Things can certainly change, should there be injuries, trades, or someone finally, mercifully signs free agents Stephen Drew or Kendrys Morales, but as of the time these words were written, these are the six lineups that should dominate MLB in 2014. 6. Detroit Tigers The Tigers lost Prince Fielder in a trade with the Rangers, and while that deal brought back Ian Kinsler, he's arguably no better at the plate than their previous second baseman, Omar Infante. Between that and losing shortstop Jhonny Peralta to free agency, the Tigers have slipped back in the ...
Surprise contender this season: The Kansas City Royals. Eric Hosmer, Alex Gordon, and Omar Infante provide a solid top part of any line-up.
Luis Castillo? Yanks bounced from Robby Cano, to Brandon Phillips, to Omar Infante, to Brian Roberts. Who was next on that list?
Free-agent second baseman Brian Roberts has reached an agreement on a one-year contract with the New York Yankees, a baseball source confirmed to ESPN.com. The deal is worth $2 million and includes incentives, a source told ESPNNewYork.com. Roberts, 36, has spent his entire 13-year career with the Baltimore Orioles. He is a two-time All-Star with a .349 career on-base percentage, 278 stolen bases and three seasons of 50 or more doubles. But he's been plagued by injuries and hasn't appeared in more than 77 games since 2009. In recent years, Roberts has missed significant amounts of time with concussions and injuries to his neck, back, knee, abdomen, hip and hamstring. He's appeared in 192 of a possible 648 games over the past four seasons The Yankees have been looking for a second baseman since Robinson Cano signed a $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners in free agency. New York explored a trade for the Cincinnati Reds' Brandon Phillips and talked to free agent Omar Infante, who eventually signed ...
Omar Infante finally gives the a 2nd baseman that isn't below-replacement and allows them to move Gordon to the 3 hole.
POSITION PLAYERS: Losses Prince Fielder, Omar Infante, Matt Tuiasosopo, Jhonny Peralta, Ramon Santiago. The additions are Jose Iglesias, Rajai Davis, Ian Kinsler, Steve Lombardozzi and Nick Castellanos. Oh and Chris is happy Don Kelly is back. Now we actually had Jose part of last year but I have included him here in this group. There is a ton of offense missing with the losses. Prince of course had the terrible post season. However he was also my wife’s favorite player and after the trade she said “that is why I do not follow teams, you like someone and then they are gone.” However in the regular season he put up some pretty good numbers. He hit 25 home runs, had 106 RBI, scored 82 runs and hit for a .279 average. His on base percentage was .362. Infante meanwhile had 10 home runs, knocked in 51, scored 54 and hit for a.318 average. His on base percentage was .345. Peralta before his suspension hit 11 home runs, knocked in 55, and scored 50. He hit for an average of .305 and his on base percentage ...
Braves need to trade Richmond or Gwinnett for Omar Infante
Matt kemp for Brandon Phillips and Homer Bailey appears to be a go. Announcement coming later today. This could be a blockbuster trade to help both teams. Shoring up a center fielder getting protection for Votto and supposedly Arroyo is coming back. With the chances of adding Omar Infante at second. I don't like losing Phillips but getting Kemp is a ridiculous trade off as long as he stays healthy.
Reds have interest in Omar Infante, but need to move Brandon Phillips first
The New York Yankees rejected the Cincinnati Reds' trade offer of All-Star second baseman Brandon Phillips for outfielder Brett Gardner, a source told ESPNNewYork.com's Andrew Marchand, confirming multiple reports. The Yankees do not like Phillips' declining numbers at his current salary, the source said. With Phillips publicly unhappy with his contract (he is heading into the third year of a six-year, $72.5 million deal), there was a feeling he would want more money on top of the four years and $50 million remaining on the contract. A second source told ESPNNewYork.com, however, that Phillips did not demand more money because a deal was never presented to him. Meanwhile, officials said the Yankees still have interest in free-agent second baseman Omar Infante but that the price -- four years, $40 million -- is too steep. The Yankees have offered a three-year, $24 million contract to Infante, a source told ESPN's Buster Olney, confirming an earlier report by the New York Post. Following the recent addition ...
The Yankees rejecting a Brett Gardner for Brandon Phillips trade, and then offering Omar Infante big money is beyond mind-boggling. Phillips is better offensively AND defensively than Infante. When is Yankee management gonna get over the love affair with Gardner?
Just In: A trade for Reds 2B Brandon Phillips for Brett Gardner was just turned down. Keeping Gardner makes a deep outfield, and two slap hitters with speed. Be more creative to acquire Phillips or find a way to get Omar Infante.
Yankees have shown interest in RP Joaquin Benoit, SP Johan Santana [on a MI deal], infielders Mark Reynolds, Dustin Ackley, Danny Espinosa, Michael Young, Didi Gregorious, and Omar Infante. They are out on Nelson Cruz and Shin-Soo Choo. They are no active talks with the Reds for Brendan Phillips but Cincinnati is interested in Brett Gardner and my trade Homer Bailey this offseason. That said Cashman has repeatedly said he wants to keep Gardner.
Why are the Yankees interested in Johan Santana? Do they think they will get the Santana of old? Why are they wasting time with this. Go get Omar Infante and trade Gardner for bullpen help and be done. I don't know why we need starting pitching when they can give Michael Pineda, Vidal Nuno, Adam Warren and David Phelps a chance.
Pirates request medical records of Johan Santana. 7 other teams also interested. Omar Infante talking with Yankees n Royals. I think we all know who will sign him. Garza close to signing. Rumor has Diamondbacks as the team.
Jon Morosi: Royals and two other teams are actively talking with free agent Omar Infante
Major League Baseball & Nippon Professional Baseball have reached an agreement in principle for a new posting system that will govern how Japanese players who haven't reached free agency in their native country to play in the United States. Texas Rangers are said to be interested in free agent RHP Bartolo Colon. It is reported that the Rangers will offer Colon no more than a one year deal. Bartolo Colon, now 40 years old, went 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA in 30 starts with the Oakland Athletics in 2013. Kansas City Royals & New York Yankees are currently competing for free agent second baseman Omar Infante. The Yankees are currently looking for a replacement for Robinson Cano who signed a ten year deal with the Seattle Mariners worth $240 million dollars. Infante played 118 games in 2013 with the Detroit Tigers batting .318 with 10 home runs. New York Mets signed pitcher Jeremy Hefner to a one year deal. Hefner had Tommy John surgery in August, & will miss most of the 2014 season. Two-time All-Star LHP Mark Mulde ...
SBNation Daily Dish: Dodgers not considering Omar Infante, for now anyway
"YANKEES GM BRIAN CASHMAN says, 'I've got work to do" After their own Freaky Friday of sorts,the Yankees wer back at work Saturday trying,as GM Brian Cashman put it, “2improve r club.

Brett Gardner figures 2b a potential trade chip now that the Yanks hav a crowded outfield & he’s reportedly garnered interest already from opposing clubs. "Anything can happen at any time,” said another baseball official with knowledge of the Yankees’ plans. The 2bits of public business the Yanks took care of Saturday wer 2 officially announce Hiroki Kuroda’s o ...
Well the Yankees just keep on spending that money that they have available. Last night they signed Carlos Beltran to a 3 year $45 million dollar deal! Take that Robinson Cano! If he did not wanna take that money that they were offering him than the Yankees will spend it on people that wanna come to the Bronx and be Yankees. I really do hope that they sign Omar Infante so that he can come in and play 2nd and move Kelly Johnson to play 3rd.
My Christmas wish list for the Orioles, sign SP Ubaldo Imenez, LF Shoo Shin Soo, and 2B Omar Infante. That would fill the holes of a SP, LF and Leadoff in one spot, and 2B. Find a closer from within the organization and these signings wouldn't break the bank. There Dan Duquette, you can send me a check for my consultant fees.
With Cano apparantly in Seattle.Omar Infante was seen with realtors in Greenwich Village
I want to hear some fresh news on Brandon Phillips, Carlos Beltran, Omar Infante, and Howie Kendrick. Oh yeah, and Tanaka.
Yes, the Yankees should sign Omar Infante. Remember Luis Vizcaino? Yes, the Yankees should sign Nate McClouth, remember Darryl Strawberry? Even though McClouth is not in the same class as the Straw Man, but a deadly lefty power bat off the bench is good to have.
OK. I am not a Yankees fan, but in fact a Yankees-hater. But, as for the Yankees, I like the McCann signing for the Yankees- hate it as a Braves fan. Looking beyond McCann, I really think they would be better off letting Robinson Cano go elsewhere and get overpaid by someone else. The Yankees would be better off spending Cano's money on 2 or 3 other players like Omar Infante to play 2B, resigning Granderson or signing Carlos Beltran for the outfield, bringing in a shortstop who could start if and when Jeter is unable to play, and signing Joe Nathan to replace Mariano as the closer. Paying Cano $25M+ a year- now do those contracts really work out well? Look at Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton just to name a few. Those contracts haven't really worked out all that well so far. A-Rod is now giving you what you could get from a $5M player for $25M, and that's if he's actually on the field.
The Yankees should sign Omar Infante and save the ludicrous Robinson Cano contract.
With Ian Kinsler traded and Robby Cano too pricey, Atlanta's second-base options may be only Placido Polanco, Omar Infante, or Mark Ellis.
In other news, see ya later, Omar Infante.
sweet .. I like his idea of 2nd base options as Omar Infante and Kendrys Morales
Remember when the had Omar Infante and Martin Prado? Studs.
Why did the Braves ever trade Omar Infante. We got Dan Uggla for him. He is an overpaid bench warmer.
Erik Johnson & Anibal Sanchez is the mound matchup in CHW/DET 2day. magic number 2 thanks to Omar Infante.
Omar Infante, the guy the Braves traded for Dan Uggla, won the game for Detroit yesterday with last inning heroics. Meanwhile, Uggla struck out once again in the ninth inning of Atlanta's loss to the Cubs.
When the announce that Omar Infante is being reinstated from the DL, Nick Castellanos better join him on the trip north.
Honestly, when Omar Infante comes back from his rehab assignment, can he stuff Nick Castellanos in his luggage?
I would laugh if it is Gaby Sanchez or Omar Infante.
I bet 1 of the 3 unknowns to be suspended by is an ex player: Gaby Sanchez, Josh Johnson, Dan Uggla, Hanley, or Omar Infante

Omar Infante said he feels good. Asked him of he's heading out to play on a rehab assignment. "No. Not yet."
Now Buck Martinez is telling us Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante went to the Dodgers last year.
Tigers: Omar Infante in a lot of pain after Colby Rasmus' slide, no timetable on return.
DTT's David Lally in Toronto just saw Omar Infante in the hotel on crutches.
A number of Tigers were not happy with the slide that knocked second baseman Omar Infante from the game
The Knuckle Ball: Makes Cabrera, the best hitter in the game, look like a fool; while Omar Infante has a field day. Shame that it is a dying pitch, it really adds an exciting dynamic to the game.
And he just hit a grand slam with Omar Infante. I am speechless.
Max gave up 2 runs on a homer to Ortiz in the first and then shut the door on the Sox to get his eleventh win of the season! First Tiger pitcher to do so since well, a very long time. Down 2-0, with bases loaded in the first, Victor Martinez at the plate and then boom! Victor hit his second career grand salami to put the Tigers ahead for good as they beat up the Sox 10-3 at Comerica! Omar Infante hit a two run homer late in the game just to add to the score and at that time he was the only Tiger without a hit in the game. The Tigers put up another multi hit game and usually when that happens they can't get it going the next game. Hopefully that will change as they try for the series win today at 1pm! Go Tigers! Well we got that much needed rain yesterday and boy did it rain! Just got done with some yard work when it started to sprinkle and then boom! Wind, rain, thunder boomers and everything! All that work and with a weak back! When did I get that you ask? About a week back! Nuk Nuk Nuk In dedication to ...
Victor Martinez scored five runs, four off a grand slam home run, Max Scherzer went 11-0 to tie George Mullen as the only Detroit Tigers pitcher to start a season with that record, Omar Infante smacked a two-run home run, and Austin Jackson had three hits and scored a run in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Boston Red Sox at Comerica Park. David Ortiz became the opposing player to hit the most home runs at Comerica Park with his 18th in the loss.

Just found a picture of me and Omar Infante and another of me and Craig Monroe from like 7 or 8 years ago, totallly forgot about those
Andy Dirks leads the Tigers in dWAR with 0.9. Omar Infante is tied for 2nd with 0.5 dWAR. Who is he tied with?
Please forgive me for whining! But I am sick of hearing Rod Allen repeatedly talk about what a great fastball hitter Omar Infante is. You'd think he was Hank Aaron or Willie Mays! He is a .276 lifetime hitter!
SIGNINGS UPDATE: Jhonny Peralta will be appearing with Omar Infante and Victor Martinez on June 22. Also, Avisail Garcia will be appearing with Alex Avila on June 6. Pricing will be on our website later today.

This is the 2013 equivalent of "The Braves are better off with Omar Infante than Chipper Jones".
Detroit 11, Toronto 1: Omar Infante leads with his bat as Tigers trounce Blue Jays
Just one lineup change for the today: Ramon Santiago playing 2B and batting ninth today in place of Omar Infante.
Jose Molina takes a trip to the mound to talk to Hellickson after Omar Infante reaches on an E5. Ryan Roberts playing 3B for today.
Justin Ruggiano just took out Omar Infante at the knees sliding into second. No honor among thieves.
Tensions are starting to erupt once again in another WBC game this time between Venezuela and Puerto Rico. Are you guys hoping that Venezuela loses tonight so Miguel Cabrera, Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez can get out of the tournament and back to Lakeland? -Adam
If the Tigers make the trade proposed by the Boston Globe (the odds of which are 0), here is what my lineup would look like: 1. Austin Jackson 2. Miguel Cabrera 3. Prince Fielder 4. Giancarlo Stanton 5. Victor Martinez 6. Torii Hunter 7. Alex Avila 8. Jhonny Peralta 9. Omar Infante
In Game Andy Dirks singles home Omar Infante, as the Tigers climb to within 1 run. The Tigers have runners on...
Omar Infante > "Rickie Weeks is still one of the worst all around second basemen in the majors."
We're looking for one more person to take over an existing h2h team. $25 league. You get up to 3 keepers from this roster... Buster Posey, Kendrys Morales, Chase Utley, Aramis Ramirez, Manny Machado, Carlos Lee, Austin Jackson, Andre Ethier, Bully Butler, Michael Bourn, Omar Infante, Michael Young, Hunter Pence, Dan Haren, James Shields, Matt Harrison, R.A. Dickey, Alexei Ogando, Mark Buehrle. Not the greatest roster out there, but I (Dixon) am the defending league champ and am probably not keeping more than 1 guy, if that. If interested, let me know. First come, first serve.
Get out your scorecard, listen to Dan Dickerson and Jim Price on the radio, and fill out the Detroit Tigers’ starting lineup this way for Friday’s 1:05 p.m. Grapefruit League opener with the Atlanta Braves at Champion Stadium in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.: 1. Quintin Berry, CF 2. Omar Infante, 2B 3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B 4. Prince Fielder, 1B 5. Victor Martinez, DH 6. Jhonny Peralta, SS 7. Brayan Pena, C 8. Avisail Garcia, RF 9. Nick Castellanos, LF Rick Porcello is the starting pitcher, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland said the Braves approved use of the designated hitter for the game in a National League ballpark. Play ball!
The Marlins traded Dan Uggla for Mike Dunn and Omar Infante so why not Giancarlo for Antonio Bastardo and Freddy Galvis.
it was cool. I've also met Elvis Andrus, Omar Infante, and Jordan Schafer.
Jim Leyland has announced who will start in the Grapefruit League opener Friday against the Braves. In the outfield Nick Castellanos will be starting in left, Quintin Berry in center, and Avisail Garcia in right. In the infield Prince Fielder will be playing first, Omar Infante at second, Jhonny Peralta at shortstop, and Miguel Cabrera at third. Rick Porcello will be on the mound pitching to catcher Brayan Pena. Just three more days!
If you had to choose between the 2 Detroit Tigers teams, the 2006 or 2012/13 roster (well pretty much 2012 just with the addition of V mart and Hunter and Subtraction of Valverde and Young) who would you choose? I choose 2012 because As the 2006 Detroit Tigers played in a tough AL Central winning 95 games and Winning the Wild Card with a team that Now wouldn't get higher than 3rd place, As the 2012 Tigers won the AL Central with 88 Wins and again a World Series visit, I still choose the 2012 Detroit Tigers or well the "New Tigers" Meaning the 2013 Tigers roster I'm Considering, were we Have Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, Omar Infante, Tori Hunter, Victor Martinez, Jhonny Peralta, Quintin Berry, Andy Dirks, Austin Jackson, and star Pitcher Justin Verlander, with Doug Fister, Max Scherzer, Rick Porcello, More names noticeable, than Joel Zumuya, Chris Shelton, Craig Monroe, Curtis Granderson, Just to name a few. still with the all star team these new age Tigers have we will be in the World Series race for . ...
that's like Omar Infante saying he's better than Miguel Cabrera.
More grades, today for Omar Infante, Ramon Santiago, and the other Tigers second basemen.
.true, but now they have Torii Hunter, a healthy Victor Martinez, plus Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante for a FULL year.
The Tigers lineup is almost as good as a lineup made of the best players from all the other teams in the division. (Who ya got? Austin Jackson, Victor Martinez, Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, Torii Hunter, Andy Dirks, Jhonny Peralta, Alex Avila, Omar Infante vs. Alex Gordon, Joe Mauer, Paul Konerko, Billy Butler, Asdrubal Cabrera, Josh Willingham, Mike Moustakas, Jason Kipnis, Alejandro De Aza.)
It's time for you to go Frank Wren. You have punished Atlanta Braves' fans enough with your arrogant and idiotic front office blunders. I believe I can get 1,000 people to agree by the end of the day! Here are the top 5 blunders and reasons he should be fired! I refer to this as The Frank Wren Blunder Bin! 1. Dan Uggla - Since coming to Atlanta, Dan Uggla has batted a .226 with 324 strike outs, in 1123 at bats.That is one strike out every 3 at bats and 1 hit per 4 plate appearances. He has 3 years left on his $62 million dollar contract. So we have paid $24.8 million to him so far, for numbers unacceptable from any minor league player. Also we had to give up All-Star and batting title contender Omar Infante and young gun Mike Dunn. Ouch! 2. Mike Hampton - this is a direct line from wikipedia - Hampton's last year in Atlanta marked the last year of an 8 year, $121 million dollar contract originally signed with the Colorado Rockies. Due to Hampton's mediocre numbers and inability to stay healthy this contra ...
- Melky Cabrera striking out to end bobby Cox's career. - replacing Cox with Fredi Gonzalez - trading Omar Infante for Dan Uggla Not done
Omar Infante (wrist) is ready to join a Venezuelan winter league team.
Reminiscing, Born in EL Slavador. Grew up in Southern California, Worked in the East Coast. Now I live in Mid West. I listen to: Elvis, Pedro Infante, Rancid, Don Omar, Garth Brooks, Snoop Dog, Carrie Underwood, and so on. I live to experience life and what it has to offer. I was brought up Catholic and now I'm a Mormon. My point? Don't ever think you're superior, because that which you don't understand might be what you're missing out on.
Here we go. Trailer for my short film! Let me know what you think! Starring Joe Ayala, Kris Gallardo, Rene Omar Molina, J.r. Molina, and myself. Edited by Andrew Infante, who also did this here teaser.
Can anyone find me an Omar Infante Lego guy? Right now I've got playing Second Base on my lego team...
Omar Infante took batting practice this afternoon at Alfonzo "Chico" Carrasquel, but was ruled out of the team.
Ouch. Broken hand for Omar Infante, by the way. Technically, non-displaced fracture of 5th metacarpal of left hand.
If Carlos boozer can play like this every night people will have to stop hatin on him
Chipper signed something for me!!! And this past year I got Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante and
Omar Infante? I like this game. Allows me to put off writing for a little longer.
I just remembered I went to Opening Day @ the Marlins Stadium, Omar Infante signed my phone cover & I got a picture w him
Which is exactly why I just traded Jose Altuve to Detroit for Omar Infante lol
According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports, the Detroit Tigers have acquired Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez from the Miami Marlins in exchange for Jacob Turner, Rob Brantly and Brian Flynn.
Yet he gave up homers to Chris Young, Erik Kratz, Ramon Hernandez, Lucas Duda, Danny Espinosa, and Omar Infante. What a crazy game.
they got rid of Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buerlhe, Bonafacio..Heath Bell, Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante etc; lol fire sale!
When in the presence of greatness, one must acknowledge the greatness. In that vein: Jeffrey Loria, that's some business you're running down there in Miami. But, the gall, that's what makes you special. Miami owner Jeffrey Loria (center) has gutted the Marlins ... again. (AP)It seems like only yesterday we pondered the notion of the Miami Marlins seizing their hardball destiny, conducting themselves like adults, spending money they'd for years siphoned from fans and fellow franchises, and then putting a serious team on the field. It was amazing. Inspiring even. And then we wondered exactly how long before they blew it up. If you had seven months (Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez, Omar Infante) or 10 months (Heath Bell, Ozzie Guillen), you'd get partial credit. Eleven months? Winner. There is a soaring tolerance to humiliation on Marlins Way. Perhaps that is the true greatness of Loria and his Marlins. Even as they spoke of honesty and loyalty in luring free agents to Miami, they doggedly refused to consider ...
No surprise here, Miami Marlins taking a machete to team payroll. Marlins originally started 2013 with about $84.85 in contract obligations, then shipped out Hanley Ramirez (15M), Heath Bell (7M), Omar Infante (4M) and Edward Mojica (1.625M) during the 2012 season, leaving them with $57.225 in salary obligations for 12 players (five eligible for arbitration). After yesterday's mega-deal with Toronto, they now have just $24.525 in committed salaries for 2013, having shipped out Jose Reyes (10M), Mark Buehrle (12M), Josh Johnson (13.75M), John Buck (6.5M) and Emilio Bonifacio (2.2M - arbitration). That means they trimmed payroll by 57.1 percent yesterday and have cut 71.09 percent in payroll from the original obligation of $84.85 million
Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, Omar Infante, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, and Heath Bell. All former MLB All stars gone in less than one year
What are the Marlins doing? Trading Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to the Blue-Jays? They're a legit contender now if you put this 3 guys with Jose Bautista! Not to mention they traded Hanley Ramirez Anibal Sanchez, and Omar Infante to the Dodgers before the deadline last season and they traded Heath Bell to the Diamondbacks. Guillen was fired after only one year down their. In other word they traded a team of All-Stars!
The Detroit Tigers are going to sign Jeremy Bonderman to a minor league contract for a comeback(oh brother),remember him?He had his ups and downs.One of his downs was his rookie year of 2003 when he won 6 and lost 19! Aaah THE TIGERS OF 2003!WHAT A TEAM!Like the Tigers of 2006,and the Tigers of 2012 they fell short of the mark!In 06 and 12 the Tiges fell short as world champs.In 2003 they fell one game short of having the worst record in all of baseball history!Hey Tigers if your going to suit up either win the series or like in 2003 be the worst of all time--GO ALL THE WAY! Alan Trammell was the manager,and the personal had many familiar names as Bonderman,Brandon Inge,Ramon Santiago,Craig Monroe,Bobby Higginson,Nate Robertson,Fernando Rodney,Steve Avery,and Omar Infante. The team had 43 wins and 119 losses and had to win their last 3 games in a row to avoid the dubious honor of being worse than the 1962 Mets who lost 120 games and have been the butt of jokes for decades. If your going to be good BE THE ...
I really hope the Detroit Tigers pick up Marco Scutaro to cover Omar Infante and pick up Ichiro Suzuki for an all-purpose outfielder.
I called it. Omar Infante broke his fifth metatarsal.
Being swept by the San Francisco Giants was painful for the Tigers.
10/28/12: Omar Infante is hit-by-pitch on the hand in the ninth inning and is forced to exit the game
I thought it could be, because of his reaction...and his reaction..
Omar Infante's hand will heal in time to join the Tigers next season, but what about the free agents?
Just realized that Casilla got the official credit for the win tonight. Does that strike anyone as odd? He comes in after Affeldt's amazing relief. Beans Omar Infante (fractures his hand). Gets one out. Well, that's baseball!
Can't stop feeling bad for Omar Infante =\ Could that pitch have broke his hand? Poor guy..
Hey fox: no report on Omar infante's hand injury?? is it broken??
Omar Infante sustained a fracture in his left hand on Sunday night.
Omar Infante broke his hand when he got drilled by Santiago Casilla. Adding insult to injury, the Giants sweep the Tigers. 4-3 the final tonight. Panda wins MVP.
Update on Omar Infante injury. Fractured hand, non-displaced of the fifth metacarpal. Non-surgical.
Thank you Detroit Tigers for a wonderful season. See ya in the spring of 2013. Get well omar infante!! Suffered a broken hand in the bottom of the 9th
Omar Infante suffered a non-displaced fracture of the 5th metacarpal on his left hand. It is a non-surgical fracture.
Worst World Series appearance I've ever seen. An AL Pennant was more than expected from this team half way through the season, but compared to the pre-season picks, this team was expected to win it all. Lloyd McClendon needs to be fired, this team hit so badly in this series, it was disgusting to watch. Great season for the Tigers, but the way it ended was not this team. I'm going to miss baseball, this is my life. BTW, Omar Infante's hand is a non-displaced fracture. No surgery required.
Omar Infante has a non-displaced fracture of fifth metacarpal on left hand. He's done for the season, which could be over very soon...
Omar Infante HBP in 9th inning. Fractured pinky as a result.
Detroit Tigers' Omar Infante leaves Game 4 in ninth inning after being hit on hand by pitch
3 out, bottom ninth. Omar Infante hit by pitch and hurting. Going to extra innings
wow, even though I'm rooting for the giants to win this, omar infante being hit by that pitch and seeing how bad his hand looks makes anyone feel bad for the tigers
Well Omar Infante your hand is now broken
That ball thrown to Omar Infante hand was a POW WOW WOW lol
Is really surprised they didn't let Omar Infante walk.
Tigers 2B Omar Infante exits Game 4 after being hit on hand by a Santiago Casilla pitch in 9th. Danny Worth enters as pinch-runner.
Wow...something you never want to see...my thoughts with Omar Infante...really sad and unintentional!!!
Omar Infante is drilled in his left hand and is taken out of the ballgame. Danny Worth will come in. That looked & sounded awful. -JD
Omar Infante's face was PRICELESS in slow motion (:
How happy is Omar Infante not to be a Miami Marlin.?
" 2 RUN HOME RUN BY CABRERA ! - . . . AND MY TIGERs up 2 to 1 , but still down 3 games 2 noNE! . . .ITS GOING 2 TAKE A MIRACLE IF THEY WANT 2 BE THA WORLDseries champions this year ! . but it can be done. . . . . .
Finally Cabrarea got a frickin HR to take the Tigers to the Lead 2-1 after 3. And our XBrave Omar Infante is like 1-10 while "The Prince" is like 1-12...come on Tigers,don't make this so frickin booring .
Alex Avila scratched from Game 4 lineup. Omar Infante will hit 8th; Gerald Laird catches and bats 9th.
10/27/12: Sergio Romo strikes out Omar Infante to earn the save and give the Giants a 3-0 Series lead
During the Giants' early two-run burst, Detroit's body language said all you needed to know about this Series. At one point in-between pitches, Cabrera put his hands on his hips at third base, shortstop Jhonny Peralta scuffed the dirt, second baseman Omar Infante turned his back to the infield, Fielder stared down at first. A losing posture, plain and simple. -ESPN
Romo, the Giants closer has the ball for the bottom of the 9th. The first batter he faces is Peralta. He rips a long fly ball into foul territory where Blanco some how manages to catch it. 1 out. Avila bats next and flies out to Pagan in center. The Tigers last chance to keep the game alive is Omar Infante, who steps to the plate. He strikes out.
In hindsight, you know you're in trouble when Delmon Young is your ALCS MVP and Omar Infante is leading the team in hitting in the Series!
I can't stand Jim Leyland's archaic ways sometimes...Omar Infante has the best lifetime stats of any Tigers player vs. Ryan Vogelsong (7 for 11), and where is Infante batting tonight? 9th in the lineup! Because he bats right-handed and Vogelsong throws right-handed.
ughh These are the kind of games the Tigers had been winning since mid-August. I could bear it if it had been game one. I do not fault them for running Prince Fielder or Omar Infante; but lack of hitting… Get back to Detroit and start hitting!
That is the most amazing slider i have ever seen. Omar infante is legit. Still refuse to watch baseball after my rangers got eliminated but caught a glimpse of this pitcher
I am sorry to say but Omar Infante is pretty cute! Think I should become a Tiger fan ?
I want to thank Jim Leyland for leaving a rookie pitcher in for the biggest at-bat of the season, Gene LaMont for stupidly sending a slow runner like Prince Fielder home when there were no outs and, most of all, Omar Infante for allowing a run to score when it was tied 0-0 in the bottom of the seventh inning.
*** you Omar Infante.. Because of you, me and the rest of America will not get free Doritos lokos tacos.
So Omar Infante screwed me out of a Doritos Locos Taco.
I think Omar Infante is Lee Moss' hidden identity, the resemblance is too uncanny. RH
It really chaps my *** when I go to sporting events and see other spectators with their hats on or talking during our National Anthem, so you can imagine how I felt tonight during the National Anthem of the World Series when Omar Infante and Avisail Garcia of the Tigers were smirking and talking. Extremely disrespectful, especially when the guy throwing the opening pitch is a veteran that lost both legs and his left arm during his 2nd tour - and he was introduced right before the singing of the Anthem. Terrible. LET'S GO GIANTS!
I wish we had Omar Infante back. I like him a lot better than Dan "I can't hit" Uggla.
Sorry Vin I found a new boo Omar Infante.O Lawd!
Verlander, whose has never reached base in his career, pops out to 1st. Austin Jackson singles to center. Omar Infante strikes out. And then Gregor Blanco makes an amazing sliding catch in left to end the inning. Defense on!
I've decided I'm going Omar Infante and the Tigers.
Omar infante iz my uncle lol duznt meen that im not rootin 4 Detroit Tigers im still in sf gaints
Omar Infante, the second batter, singles up the center. Zito goes from 3 and 0 to Cabrera to a full count. He walks. Prince Fielder pops out to left on the first pitch. Delman Young grounds to 3rd. Detroit leaves 2 on. Giants coming up. No score.
The Braves were *** for giving away Omar Infante!!!
Lol McCarver using Charlie Manuel's insanity as an example of how great Omar Infante is.
the ex-Cub factor tells us that the the Giants; with two, should lose to the Tigers; zero ( omar infante never actually played a game with the Cubs ). let's hope that's right. what do you think Cub fans???
Oh and also Matt Dominguez, Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, Gaby Sanchez, Anibal Sanchez, Edward Mujica, & Randy Choate have all been traded.
The braves traded Gregor Blanco and Omar Infante away so they could get Dan Uggla. Both infante and blanco are playing in the World Series.
The Detroit Tiger have to much fire power, with Miggy Cabrera,winner of the triple crown, Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander 2011 Cy Young, Prince Fielder 30hr, Omar Infante and the ace in the hole Jhonny Peralta Jim Leyland and the Tigers will beat the Giants the question is, will the Tigers who are hungry (1968 last World Series win) sweep the Giants as they did the Yanks or willit go 4 and 1? Sorry Phil.
Detroit Tigers World Series rotation...Justin Verlander, Doug Fister, Anibal Sanchez, Max Scherzer. Lineup: Austin Jackson 8, Omar Infante 4, Miguel Cabrera 5, Prince Fielder 3, Delmon Young DH, Jhonny Peralta 6, Alex Avila 1, Quintin Berry 7, Brennan Boesch 9. Synopsis: sometimes life just isn't fair. I really don't feel bad for not making it farther than we did because no one stands a chance in *** against that. 2012 World Series belongs to the Tigers. Playing the game is just a formality.
Nine former Erie Seawolves are on the Tigers World Series roster, including Justin Verlander, Andy Dirks, Avisail Garcia, and Omar Infante.
While neither Omar Infante or Anibal Sanchez proved to be the super pick up ala Doug Fister in 2011, the Tigers don't even make the playoffs, let alone win the AL pennant, without the mid-season acquisition of the former Miami duo. Sanchez had some tough luck starts, often receiving little run support, but in some key games he came up huge. Meanwhile, Infante did what he has done since earning his stripes in his early 20s in the majors when he should have been refining his skills in the minors. He played a solid 2B, hit about .260 with the Tigers and showed enough pop -- 12 homers and 60ish RBIs -- to at least be a casual threat with the bat. Plus, with Inge finally being given his walking papers after failing to fill the void at 2B -- along with everyone but me -- Infante, ala Inge, provides a link to the 119 loss Tigers (Infante and Ramon Santiago are the two leftovers from that memorable 2002 team).
Congrats to Jhonny Peralta, Omar Infante & Rick Porcello -- Wilson Athletes World Series-bound with the
We sweep! The guys I feel happiest for are the Tiger vets who have been around for 6, 8, 10 years who have never played in a World Series. The likes of Jhonny Peralta, Omar Infante, Prince Fielder, Jose Valverde and Joaquin Benoit. Of course, Miguel Cabrera won a World Series as a rookie with the Marlins in 2003!
Congrats to Miguel Cabrera, Jhonny Peralta, Alex Avila, Joaquin Benoit, Octavio Dotel, Avisail Garcia, Omar Infante, Anibal Sanchez, Jose Valverde, Ramon Santiago.and the rest of the Detroit Tigers as they move on to the World Series.
Thorn in side/potential MVP Delmon Young singles home Omar Infante and it's quickly 1-0 in 1st.
Tigers survived (another) big scare in 9th. Omar Infante badly jammed his right thumb on Teixeira 1B. X-rays negative.
I die a little bit when I think about Omar Infante, Elvis Andrus, Yunel, and Martin Prado and that none of them play SS/2B for the Braves
So, Joe Girardi wants instant replay? Fine. I totally agree. The postseason is too important to hinge on an umpire's mistake. Omar Infante was ruled safe on this play in the eighth inning of Game 2, but replay revealed he should've been called out. But if we're going to have more replay, I don't just want it instant. I want it retroactive, too. Specifically, retroactive to the 1996 American League Championship Series when umpire Richie Garcia gave the Yankees the Jeffrey Maier home run. And the 1998 World Series when Garcia should have called strike three on Tino Martinez just before he hit a grand slam off Mark Langston. And the 1999 ALCS when Tim Tschida called out Jose Offerman on Chuck Knoblauch's phantom tag. And the 2009 Division Series when Phil Cuzzi ruled Joe Mauer's double down the line was foul. After all those bad calls went their way, the Yankees are now going to whine about the umpires doing them wrong? Please. Go tell your sad, $200 million tale to the Orioles, Padres, Twins and everyone e ...
Note to New York Yankee Fans: Omar Infante was out on that play in the Top of the 8th...Now that that's out the way, I seem to remember an umpire named Richie Garcia missed a blatant call too...In the 1996 ALCS that not only propelled the Yankees to the start of a dynasty by created this bogus notion that somehow Derek Jeter is some human manifestation of God...So excuse me if I have absolutely no sympathy for you or your Fallen Hero Jeter...Karma is a big fat trick (For lack of a better term) so I look forward to some brooms coming out in the Motor City because the fact of the matter is y'all have 27 Championships so an umpire possibly costing you number 28 shouldn't really matter to you at all...Suck It You Yankee ***
10/14/12: Omar Infante is called safe at second by umpire Jeff Nelson after Nick Swisher fires a strike from right to try and get the out
I'd still rather have Omar Infante at 2nd than Dan Uggla.
Omar Infante and Austin Jackson have come to play today 4 runs, 4 hits, 2 RBIs between em.
Meanwhile, in Oakland … Austin Jackson doubles in Omar Infante, advances on bunt, scores on wild pitch. 2-0 in 3rd.
Big hit for Austin Jackson after some heads up base running by Omar Infante! Tigers up 1-0
Ok here is my Detriot Tigers Batting Lineup.1 Austin Jackson 2 Avisail Garcia 3 Miguel Cabrea 4 Prince Fielder (DH) 5 Delmond Young 6 Alex Avila 7 Don Kelly 8 Omar Infante 9 Ramon Santiago.Guess you can tell by all the Post's I'm pumped for this game.lol
A's score 3 runs in bottom of 9th to steal victory 4-3 from Tigers in game 4 of ALDS force 5th and deciding game thursday night OAKLAND, Calif. -- Seth Smith, Coco Crisp and the never-say-die Oakland Athletics forced a Game 5 of their AL division series against the Detroit Tigers with their most memorable comeback yet.Smith hit a game-tying two-run double off closer Jose Valverde in the ninth inning and Coco Crisp capped Oakland's most dramatic comeback yet with a two-out RBI single as the A's staved off elimination for a second straight night with a 4-3 victory in Game 4 Wednesday night.The A's rode 14 walkoff wins in the regular season to an improbable AL West title. Those paled in comparison to No. 15, which set up a win-or-go-home Game 5 against Justin Verlander and the Tigers.Josh Reddick started the rally with a single just under the glove of diving second baseman Omar Infante. Josh Donaldson followed with a double off the wall in left-center and both runners scored on Smith's double. Two outs later ...
After a sac bunt by Austin Jackson moved him into scoring position, Omar Infante scores on Avisail Garcia's single in 8th & it's 3-1 Tigers.
The best part about having Omar Infante on the team is that he's not Ryan Raburn.
Just thought I'd throw this out there.. My prediction for Game 3 of the ALDS, Tigers @ A's.. Prince Fielder is only 1 for 8 with only 1 walk so far this series so he is due & it's coming tonight! I see him hitting at least a 2-run homer tonight.. Delmon Young will likely have a decent night as he bats .444 against Anderson.. Miguel Cabrera will be his usual self & probably touch base 3 or 4 times as he bats .429 against Anderson.. Austin Jackson, I see 2 for 4 & a walk. Omar Infante will probably double between left & center field.. Tigers win by 3 & sweep the A's.. Of course Anibal Sanchez has to have a good outing...
An emotionally calmer and defensively cleaner Omar Infante doesn't hedge for a second when distributing the credit for finding his way out of a hole that could have buried him in Detroit. He points to Jhonny Peralta's cubicle.
The Detroit Tigers have taken a 2-0 lead on the A's! Tons of contributions from former SeaWolves yesterday including Don Kelly (GW-Sac Fly) Avisail Garcia (Gunned down Crisp at the plate) Omar Infante (GW Run).
Austin Jackson, Omar Infante and Miguel Cabrera up to face Grant Balfour in the bottom of the 9th in a 4-4 tie.
Andres Gallaraga, Ryan Klesko, John Smoltz, Javy Lopez, Jeff Francouer, Omar Infante, and Chipper Jones. I have always had one player that made me stay a Braves fan. There is nobody on the team now that I can get excited about. Guess imma have to find me a new team now!
He'll need more teammates to get on base in front of him. Omar Infante & Quintin Berry haven't been doing that of late.
Alex Avila .243 BA, 9 HR, 48 RBI last year: .295 BA, 19 HR, 82 RBI(won a Silver Slugger) Delmon Young .267 18 HR, 74 RBI last year: .274 BA, 8 HR, 32 HR in 40 games with DET Jhonny Peralta .239 BA, 13 HR, 63 RBI last year: .299 BA, 21 HR, 86 RBI Omar Infante .257 BA, 4 HR, 20 RBI Brennan Boesch .240 BA, 12 HR, 54 RBI I don't bash my own players to beef up Cabrera's worth. I bash them because I expected more from them. Avila and Peralta has big years last year and completely fell short of my expectations. I also expected Brennan Boesch to have a breakout year and he eventually got bumped from the OF rotation. I love my team, but at the same time, I have to be realistic too and be honest
