    He'll need it. Because as he's struggling to get through the 5th inning with a lead, the Tigers' weak-azz bullpen (the very reason this team did not win 95 or more games last season) will make things interesting no doubt.

    Granderson is my favorite Tiger :)

    What a player, and what a guy! You can't ask for a better player.

    That's only $300,000 per triple!

    Actually, it really is a good deal. I just wanted to see how that sounded.

    I like the fact that he joined Willie Mays and Frank "Wildfire" Schulte as the only players in major league history with 20 steals, 20 homers, 20 triples and 20 doubles. Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins became a part of the 20-20-20-20 club later in the season.

    I also like the fact that Granderson is a nice guy. I met him walking to a Lions pre-game last year. He signed autographs for my son and I. He hung around and talked to us like we were his friends. If he stays that humble and keeps putting up great numbers, this signing was definitely a steal.

    I like Grandy, too, but the guy strikes out a lol. Although he did reduce them by a lot last season (from 174 to 141). I'd put an incentive in there giving him more $$$ if he gets his strikeout numbers into double digits.

    Not sure he should be hitting leadoff.

    Grady Sizemore who most people compare Grandy with got $23.4 million for 6 years in 2004.

    Grady Sizemore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    $30 million is a fair price though hopefully before Grandy's contract is up he will get an extension at higher dollars.

    I think he can become a 30 - 30 guy. He needs to learn how to hit left handed pitchers before he can take it to the next level.

    He hit only .160 against lefties last year, which won't get it done.

    Lots of runs, but whether they get to the WS and win it will depend on their starting pitching which at this point is a big question mark. Lots of potential but we shall have to wait and see.
