Yes, that needs a lot of context. And when you are talking about replacing him with Worth or Kelly,
yes, and you need
Inge isn't an all-star and he isn't a premier 3B. He's a good 3B though. He's got some decent power (both gap and HR) in his bat, is a premier fielder, and a very under-rated baserunner. Good for the clubhouse by all accounts as well. Overall, value-wise, I'd put him in the middle of the pack. He certainly offers more value than Don Kelly and Danny Worth.
Third base is supposed to be power position in your lineup.
So is 1B, DH, and the corner outfield spots, but very few teams ever have 4 power hitters, let alone 5 with one in each of those spots. I'd prefer to have Evan Longoria too, but there are only so many of those guys to go around. And, again, if we are talking about him being replaced by Don Kelly or Danny Worth, those guys have even less power, so the power comment doesn't really make sense.
I'm counting down the days until Nick Castellanos is Major League ready.
Really hoping that kid pans out. Would be nice to have a homegrown premier 3B.
