Derek Jeter's Diary: Hughes Blues - The Triangle Blog - Grantland

I couldn't stop laughing while reading the fake Derek Jeter Diary. Well done Mark Lisanti. 

"Also, I see that Detroit released Brandon Inge. It's always sad when a guy gets shown the door like that, but it's a little weird how crazy everyone's going about it. He's batting like .100, and he didn't have a position since Miggy Cabrera got moved to third. You'd think that with all these Moneyball types analyzing baseball someone might suggest Cabrera could try playing third with Inge on his shoulders; I don't know a lot about the advanced metrics, but you'd have to believe it wouldn't affect his range too much, and they'd get to a lot of high line drives. Think about it. It's not too late to get him back."
