It's true. Brandon Inge is playing for the Tigers main Minor League team the Toledo MudHens. Instead of retiring, or being traded, the Tigs sent him down to the farm to try and correct his .177 batting average. So they can trade him or ask him to retire.

John Kerfoot, a film instructor at Toledo University made a spoof of the Pure Michigan ads, about Brandon and the Tigers. It has made it on mlive.com and is pretty funny, like most spoof "Pure Michigan" ads...NSFW, and if you are easily offended, I wouldn't watch it either...for those of us that can take it, here you go!
