I’m Sick And Tired Of Major League Baseball Taking Advantage Of Mentally Retarded People For Their Own Amusement

Brandon Inge

I don’t know, maybe it’s just an American League Central bit. You may recall last week when I pointed out how the Minnesota Twins were using differently-abled Matt Tolbert as their third baseman.

Now we see that the Detroit Tigers have have hopped on the tardwagon. If anyone even tries to argue that the fellow pictured in the above photo isn’t special, we are going to have some words, my good man.

And what’s this guy’s name? Brandon? Jesus Christ, it’s bad enough the guy had to go through his whole life feeling different and the parents had to name him Brandon? Not cool. He sure looks happy, though. I can’t say for sure, but it looks like he’s got a forehead like a drive-in movie theater under that helmet. But he’s a good shit, so I hope his teammates don’t bust his chops too much.

You know, maybe it’s not such a bad thing after all. He’s got plenty of room out on the field to play. And dig.
