The New "Super Joe"

The Indians called up Joe Inglett (right) to The Show recently. The 28-year-old rookie is hitting over .300 in the Majors and will battle Hector Luna for the starting second base position in 2007. (For more information on Luna, see my Transaction Wire Extravaganza, hopefully coming in the next few days.) I don't know if Inglett will be able to keep up this performance over a full season, but I have my fingers crossed.

How could I not love this 5-10, 180 lb, high sock and single digit wearer who's the best sacrifice bunter on the team and a speedy hustler who is primarily a second baseman but can play a total of six positions? Sure, I'll call the Gammonsesque mancrush now.
