Grand Cards: Still Room...

Still Room...

Ever wonder why I've decided to devote an entire collection and blog to Curtis Granderson? I thought I explained it well here, but if you can go the mainstream media route if you're not sold. The Detroit Free Press put together a killer article this morning that explains just what Curtis Granderson means to baseball. All I can say is get on the bandwagon now, before it runs out of room. Don't say you weren't warned.

An excerpt for those disinclined to click:
In what might be the best example of that, when Granderson signed a $30.25-million contract extension with the Tigers last February, he also changed future endorsement contracts with Nike, Rawlings and Louisville Slugger.

Starting with this season, he no longer will get a retainer from the companies. Instead, he asks that they donate equipment to inner-city youth baseball teams across the state.

Definitely worth a read.
