For someone who was striking out an awful lot in Toledo, Grandy sure made some nice contact tonight. Maybe he's one of those hitters who do better with major league pitching. Something to do with more pitches being strikes = not missing so many pitches.
I was also surprised that Curits is as fast as he looked. All I've heard was how he had decent speed, but nothing to write home about. But he covered some centerfield ground pretty nicely tonight, and looked quick down the firstbase line.
Reall saw the upside of the newer Tigers tonight. Monroe rocked, Granderson looked like a pro, and Shelton/Maggs continues to hit. Each of them have 14 game hitting streaks. Could be a real nice three-four combo for years. This line-up is comming together nicely.
