It isn't easy being green: Inge talks A's, mullets, smack with former teammates and hitting the Metrodome roof

Brandon Inge, the former-Tiger-turned-Oakland-Athletic, was on MLB Network talking about his new gig with the A's, and how much he's enjoying being back at home at third base. While the co-hosts of "The Rundown," Matt Yallof and Sean Casey (Inge's former teammate in Detroit) were in-studio, Inge was being interviewed on camera from the dugout at Fenway Park. (Thank goodness the camera can really zoom in.)

A few quotes from Inge —

On hitting second: "I did ask if we were trying."
On the upcoming series (May 10-13) against the Tigers in Oakland:
"I'm gonna wanna beat 'em. That's for one, for sure. I've already been messing with a couple of the guys. I've been sending (Alex) Avila texts and stuff, just telling him, 'Wait until you come over to Oakland.' So, it's going to be fun to play against those guys."
Here's the video of the interview, if you'd like to watch:

And, yes, Yallof gave another vote to the "It looks weird seeing Inge in green" sentiment.
