That’s just the book on him

My suggestion is to fire Hurdle, hire someone who has the nuts to cut Inge, then re-hire Hurdle.

Bumped Pedro to the 4th hole and pence/rios behind. Followed by who ever is hotter at the plate of Martin or walker

Pedro is getting pitched around and needs a threat behind him. He is trying to hit anything close to the strike zone. After Pedro, who else is there to score a run or two with his power? No one! Pitchers know the is and give him pitches way out or up and in. Watch the pitch tracker on MLB app when Pedro is up. A guy who has good gap power, obs, and can hit around .280/.300 range, may give Pedro better pitch selections to hit.

Make Inge the Pirate Parrot, it sounds as if he would make a great mascot.

He got the invite from Pirates, got a pass and still made team. Once on team he has been one of poorest performers in majors. If he is at stage that he should have to perform in majors to keep a job. For some reason the Bucs have kept him.
