Now that Curtis Granderson is a New York Yankee, there is a lot of
ground to cover in center field at Comerica Park – and no one to cover
it. As the Winter Meetings drew to a close, I jumped for joy after
hearing that the Detroit Tigers had an interest in acquiring former Los
Angeles Dodger’s outfielder, Juan Pierre.
Unfortunately, it was the Chicago White Sox that made the deal for
Pierre. It is a good acquisition for them. A left-handed hitter,
Pierre, 32, will easily replace lead-off hitter Scott Podsednik, who is
a free agent.
Is a Detroit Tiger’s uniform in Podsednik’s future? It is a possibility. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, Curtis Granderson posted a new picture on his
Facebook page today. One young fan commented, “Why did you leave? My
room was covered with Curtis Granderson stuff!”
It is going to take some time getting used to this look. Personally, I must say, he looks better wearing the Old English D.
