Inge, Caterpillar to part ways


After making a key error in game 5 of the World Series as well as having multiple pitchers throw wildly past him at third the past couple days, Brandon Inge has decided to part ways with the caterpillar crawling on his chin at season’s end.

"I think I’ve milked this thing long enough, little Sparky (presumably the caterpillar) is pretty tapped out," said Inge during a special interview with Buck and McCarver in the 5th inning while simultaneously trying to concentrate on the pitch being delivered to Albert Pujols. "And plus, I can tell this thing is starting to creep the other guys out — Zumaya nearly crapped his pants last night when he turned to me for the throw. I really can’t blame him for slinging it wide 15 feet."
