Disappointing to see the Cubs miss out on Granderson.
Of course, I have no idea how much the Cubs were involved in the trade talks, but with all the moving parts of a seven-player trade, I thought the Cubs had enough talent to be involved.
It’s not devastating news, but obviously Granderson would have been a tremendous fit to roam center field at Wrigley.
On the other hand, Granderson’s arrival in N.Y. likely increases the availability of Melky Cabrera. No reason Hendry shouldn’t give the kid a look, either. He’s a young 24-year-old with upside.
