Blues blog of choice:
If the Tigers are affecting my hockey blogging and it's December, it's either really good or really bad. Yesterday, they made me dead to the world by trading Curtis Granderson.
I'm a stat geek, but Curtis is one of -- if not the only -- player in which I throw that stuff out the window. And even that sentence would be misleading since he's a crazy talented player, but apparently his splits against lefties were too much for Dave Dombrowski to sleep at night. In an era of a sport where sleaze bags and 'roided up antiheroes are revealed on a weekly basis, the Tigers just got rid of the opposite of that. He's the epitome of a role model, character and anything else that opposes the Clemenses and Cansecos of the baseball world. It's a disgusting decision to me. Although I guess I really shouldn't be that surprised.
