DKnoblerTigers have tried hard to interest Phillies in Inge, so far unsuccessfully..

I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say Brandon Inge doesn't have much trade value. When a team is aggressively trying to convince another team to trade for their player, that's not a good sign.

Detroit gave Inge a shot to play second base this spring, but that endeavor appears to have failed. Which is kind of disappointing, because an infield of Prince Fielder-Inge-Jhonny Peralta-Miguel Cabrera would've been the best thing to happen to American League offenses since the designated hitter.

In other trades-not-happening news, it looked like Cleveland was going to acquire Bobby Abreu from the Angels Thursday night, but that deal now looks dead. That may not be the worst thing for Cleveland -- as Buster Olney pointed out, Abreu tailed off after the All-Star break last year (.215.282.366) and is 4-46 this spring.
