The Cubs need a centerfielder; Curtis Granderson is the best player available.
I’m all in favor of a trade. Granderson is a smart player, an energy guy and a terrific teammate.
I couldn’t care less that he’s a hometown kid from Lynwood, either. Doesn’t even factor into my thinking.
More importantly, it’s about the talented package of players Jim Hendry will have to assemble to get the budding 28-year-old star from Detroit.
I’d sign off on any trade package including the likes of Jake Fox, Jeff Samardzija, Tyler Colvin, Jeff Baker, Sam Fuld, Andres Blanco, Micah Hoffpauir, Aaron Heilman or Sean Marshall.
