Its nice to see you too acs.
Anyway, you are right, the Tigers have a lot of contact and high OBP guys in Polly, Renteria, and Guillen. Pretty much exactly what I would want when I think of the optimal way to build an offense. Surround big time sluggers with guys who get on base - sounds great to me. You see a negative that Polly is just a singles hitter, while I see that as a positive, and the same goes for renteria.
You are mistaken about Guillen, although that argument would have made sense a few years ago.
Granderson is a stud, you are right - and you know what - most people around him think he's only going to get better. If you slept on him last season, thats fine, dont make the same mistake again this yr. Looking at his numbers and saying he wont repeat is a mistake - watch him play, watch him interview, listen to those around him - he is absolutely no fluke.
As far as sounding desperate, arent you a Yankme fan? Seems to me that all Yankme fans should feel a little more desperate right about now.
