I’m mildly surprised there’s no thread about it, but here we go.
The first trade of the Winter Meetings involves my Detroit Tigers. They give up Edwin Jackson and Curtis Granderson. Granderson becomes a Yankee (boo, hiss) and Jackson becomes a Diamondback. Ian Kennedy also goes to the Diamondbacks. In return, the Tigers get from the Diamondbacks Max Scherzer and Daniel Schelereth and from the Yankees, Phil Coke and Austin Jackson. Granderson is a really classy guy and I like him, but he’s a platoon player, for he can’t hit lefties worth a hill of beans. I’m more broken up about Jackson leaving. He had a helluva first half but slid hard in the second half of the season. I think the Tigers were looking to get him out while he had value because of how Armando Galarraga went last year for them (from amazing to very inconsistent this year).
Any rumblings for your teams yet?
