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. "I’ve got work 2do,”Cashman added."I need a starter,bullpen,2ndbase.We’ve still got work.” Cashman & his brain trust r heading to the right place 2shop-baseball’s winter meetings begin Monday in Orlando.Though Friday saw Robinson Cano go 2Seattle & the Yanks add Hiroki Kuroda & Carlos Beltran,that whirlwind doesn’t preclude more action.Figure on hearing a lot about Omar Infante,a possible solution at second,& starting pitching over the next week. 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

Just put Cabrera on the DL and pray the pitching holds up. Also, Omar infante is dead right?

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.

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!

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

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 ...

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.

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

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
A few post-celebration Tiger thoughts: 1. Jim Leyland pisses me off sometimes. But when he's talking about his players and his appreciation of Tiger fans, he gets genuinely misty-eyed and his sincerity wins me over completely. All the mumbling and Marlboros can't hide how much he loves his team, his job, and the fans. 2. In watching the final week of the season, I was already thinking about next year. Victor Martinez replaces Delmon Young, Andy Dirks and Omar Infante play a full season, Verlander-Scherzer-Fister-Smyly are a formidable rotation, Berry and Garcia add speed and defense off the bench...next year will be what fans expected this year. 3. I felt kind of sorry for Miquel Cabrera, who it seemed stayed away from the team as they celebrated by spraying champagne all over. I hope he had some non-alcoholic beverages to spray around. 4. Cabrera is awesome. 5. This team is built for the postseason and they will go as far as their bullpen takes them.
have you ever heard of Martin Prado, Omar Infante, Johan Santana, Felix Hernandez, or Miguel Cabrera? c:
It was hard to trade Jacob Turner but Omar Infante has solidified second base
Twins Beat Tigers 4-2 MINNEAPOLIS -- Ryan Doumit had four RBIs for Minnesota, including the go-ahead two-run double in the eighth inning to help the Twins beat Detroit 4-2 on Friday and keep the Tigers from moving any closer to the AL Central title.The Tigers entered the night with a two-game lead on the Chicago White Sox, who hosted Tampa Bay.Rookie Drew Smyly struck out five over 5 1/3 scoreless innings, but Brayan Villarreal (3-5) walked three to load the bases in the eighth before Doumit's one-out hit put the Twins in front. Omar Infante's two-run homer after an error spoiled Scott Diamond's shutout in the eighth, tying the game at 2, and Glen Perkins picked up his 16th save with a perfect ninth inning.
Tigers tie up game the same way they fell behind. Infield error puts runner on for 2-run HR, this one from Omar Infante. 2-2 in 8th.
Omar Infante just saved me from unleashing a string of obscenities at Phil Coke.
Mario Impemba says Omar Infante's 260/298/346 BA/OBP/SLG is "pretty good offensively". May as well give him the gold glove too
Denard Robinson could learn a thing or two about throwing the ball away from Omar Infante
We've met Zack Hample before, and we haven't exactly been kind to him. That's because Hample is a ballhawk—a member of that fraternity of obsessive dudes who hang around ballparks and trample babies whenever Omar Infante flips a baseball into the stands.
Omar Infante with a throwing error on a DP attempt. In other news, the sun came up today.
Miguel Cabrera's 41st HR helps Tigers by A's, 6-2 DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera homered, Omar Infante drove in three runs and Justin Verlander pitched six scoreless innings to help the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland Athletics 6-2 on Wednesday night. Verlander (15-8) allowed five hits and three walks while striking out five.The Tigers have won two straight over the A's -- and 28 of their last 36 games at home -- in their chase to catch the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox.Oakland, clinging to an AL wild-card spot, has dropped three straight and might have had a costly loss on the mound because Brett Anderson (4-2) left the game after two-plus innings with a strained right oblique.
And now, on to baseball. I'm bummed that the Tigers lost yesterday. But in that game was everything that makes baseball great. The turning point in the game came when the Tigers had a one-run lead and the White Sox had the bases loaded and one out. Al Albuquerque needed a double-play grounder, and he got one. But Alex Rios, who was on first base, does what good baseball players do. He slides into second HARD, disrupting Omar Infante's throw, which skips past Prince Fielder and instead of the inning being over, two runners score and the Sox win by one run. OK, I HATE the result. But THAT'S how baseball should be played. We all love Miguel Cabrera hitting a three-run homer. We all love Justin Verlander throwing 100 mph. But doing those little things--hitting the cut-off man, getting a bunt down, sliding hard into second to break up a double-play--THAT'S baseball, and you don't have to be seven feet tall or be able to bench press 500 lbs. to do it. You just have to play the game the right way. LOVE IT. If th ...
9/17/12: Alex Rios slides to force a throwing error from Omar Infante, allowing two runs to score to give the White Sox their first lead
White Sox top Tigers 5-4 in matinee makeup, Central lead now at 3 over Tigers CHICAGO -- Omar Infante's throwing error on a potential double play helped Chicago scored two runs in the fifth inning Monday and the White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 5-4 in a pivotal makeup game.Chicago increased its lead in the AL Central to three games.Nate Jones (8-0) pitched 2 2/3 innings of one-hit relief and the White Sox won their fourth straight.The game had been postponed by rain last Thursday and Monday's makeup was the final meeting of the season between the two front runners in the division.Addison Reed, the last of three relievers in the ninth, got the final out for his 27th save in 31 chances.Trailing 4-3, the White Sox loaded the bases for a third straight inning in the fifth, driving out Detroit starter Doug Fister (9-9).When Dayan Viciedo hit a one-out grounder to short, the Tigers tried to turn the inning-ending double play, but Alex Rios slid hard into second baseman Infante and forced an errant throw that g ...
I think the White Sox are going to win the division. That team gave us every chance to take it from them, but we are dropping the ball like usual this year. The Tigers should not go out of their way to bring back Jim Leyland next year. Let Rayburn and Delmon Young leave, keep Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante, put Victor Martinez at full time DH, POSSIBLY listen to offers for Brennan Boesch and determining whether Benoit or Valverde will be our closer will depend on a few things. Next year will be a better year for us
scores. Paul Konerko scores. Alex Rios out at 2nd. Dayan Viciedo advances to 2nd, on a throwing error by second baseman Omar Infante.
Doug Fister & homers help Tigers reduce White Sox's Central lead to 2,as they beat the Sox 5-3 CHICAGO -- Doug Fister pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Austin Jackson hit a tying two-run homer and Miguel Cabrera delivered a go-ahead solo shot Tuesday night to lead the Detroit Tigers past the White Sox 5-3, reducing Chicago's AL Central lead to two games.The division's top two teams have now split the first two of a four-game series, their last head-to-head matchup this season. The Tigers ended a four-game losing streak and have beaten the White Sox eight times in the last nine meetings.Jackson's 14th homer followed a single by Omar Infante in the top of the fifth off Jake Peavy. One batter later, Cabrera hit his 36th of the season to put the Tigers up 3-2. The only two hits Fister (9-8) gave up were solo homers to Dewayne Wise in the first and Gordon Beckham in the third that gave the White Sox a 2-0 lead.
Congrats to Omar Infante for ruining Rick Porcello's shot at a win tonight. Detroit Tigers D is an embarrassment.
Ryan Raburn and Omar Infante are truly on the s*** list now! Another 3-2 loss is all but assured
so, we have Quintin Berry, Andy Dirks, Brennan Boesch, Ramon Santiago, and Omar Infante. Instead we're gonna bat raburn 2nd. good move jimmy
"The biggest change to tonight's lineup is Ramon Santiago, who's filling in for Omar Infante at second base and batting ninth. Santiago is 6-for-44 (.136) since the All-Star break with no RBIs and no extra-base hits. He is 1-for-3 off tonight's Angels starter, right-hander Ervin Santana." What part of that justifies Omar Infante sitting the bench in lieu of Santiago in the midst of a pennant chase?
Omar Infante currently has a .272 OBP. Yea, he sure is the savior. Even Delmon Young laughs at that OBP.
oh forgot the defense is an embarrassment and we didn’t have a second baseman better than Ryan Raburn til reacquiring Omar Infante
Didnt see the Tigers game tonight but really did I need to, just knowing they were shut out by as God awful of a pitcher as BRUCE CHEN in a game with the ChiSox winning that the Tigs absolutely needed to win is enough for me to do this: At 1:43am EST on Aug. 30th i'm officially conducting my own little personal funeral on the 2012 Tigers season. Congratulations to the Chicago White Sox on winning the 2012 Central Division title. You absolutely deserve it more as you play with more heart than the Tigers and play above your talent level instead of below your talent level. And forget playing the oh well we play em 3 this weekend so we have a chance to make up ground card. Not gonna happen, Tigs will be lucky to win 1 of 3. Thanks to Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder, Max Scherzer, and Austin Jackson for great seasons and to Omar Infante, Andy Dirks and Bryan Villereal for at least showing potential for the future. And Fister, VMart, and Alberquerke get incompletes because of injuries. Everyone ...
Omar Infante is playing with the ghost of Chuck Knoblauch inside of him
Anibal Sanchez, Tiger 'pen combine on 7-hitter to stop Jays DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez pitched effectively into the seventh inning, and the Detroit Tigers held on to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Wednesday night.Sanchez (2-3), acquired from Miami in a five-player deal last month, allowed one earned run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked two, leaving with the tying run on third base.Detroit's bullpen closed the game out. Jose Valverde pitched the ninth for his 25th save in 29 chances and 100th save as a Tiger.Aaron Laffey (3-5) allowed two earned runs and five hits in six-plus innings. He walked three and struck out two.The Blue Jays have been held to three or fewer runs for six straight games.Sanchez and Omar Infante both came over from the Marlins in the same trade, and each played an important role Wednesday. Infante's triple in the fourth was Detroit's first hit of the game, and he came home on a wild pitch to make it 1-0.Sanchez settled in nicely in what may have been his ...
