Needless to say I'm not doing any more work today.... Problem is I'm going to miss his MLB debut because I will be at a cottage with no cable tonight. I'm seriously considering staying home.

I have no idea what kind of contract Granderson has, but do you think this would make Granderson expandable in the near future? I'm assuming they are going to move Maybin to LF if he isn't backing up.

Wow, that's quite a leap to make in just a few weeks from A to AA to Detroit. You'd think it would still just be a temporary thing to give them more flexibility with the injuries they've been having.

That article mentions him as a brilliant centerfielder. If he sticks around and has success, does his switch to a corner spot, or do they move Granderson to a corner spot?

Fifteen plus years of sucking should get you some top prospects.

Wow and to think I saw him and Andrew Miller playing down in Florida back in April.

That's a hot topic among Tiger fans. My view is that Granderson has played great centerfield so he shouldn't be moved unless it's clear that the replacement is better defensively, especially in a ballpark like Comerica. But those who've watched Maybin play in the OF say he's very good out there and should be the CFer. He won't lead to Granderson leaving the team. He'll just move to left.
