David Laurila at Baseball Prospectus caught up with Tiger centerfielder Curtis Granderson. It opens with some talk about Granderson’s strikeouts and then it gets into how Granderson favors on base percentage as a measure of his performance. He also seems to not apppreciate his own defense because only gives himself a six out of ten rating. This is from a guy who finished with 18 fielding runs above average (nearly two wins) and who finished third in the majors in zone rating.
Speaking of Granderson, he just doubled to lead things off for the Tigers today against the Yankees.
