Joel Sherman of the Post has been writing about the availability of Curtis Granderson and his being a perfect fit for the Yankees. I can't speak to Granderson as a player since I can't honestly say I pay too much attention to anyone on the Tigers, but I do like his work as an analyst for ESPN during the postseason. Even if he was a bust on the field, I'm sure he'd entertain the other players on the bench with his in-game analysis.
The point is, because Detroit is having a fire sale, a phrase taken from the days when down on their luck business owners would set fire to their store and try to sell as much as they could before it was all consumed in a hellish inferno, the Yankees might be able to get Granderson without giving up way too much (cf. Halladay trade). This would put them in a position of strength in negotiating with Damon and Matsui, in the view of Sherman. Granted, it would cost us Austin Jackson. Would it be worth it to get a 29 year old outfielder with lefty power?
