Granderson To Yankees Picking Up A Little Steam

According to the most current updates over at MLBTradeRumors, the deal to bring Curtis Granderson to the Yankees is picking up a little steam. Both Jon Heyman and Mark Feinsand seem to agree. It sounds like the Tigers are willing to come down a little on the price, meaning, as Feinsand writes, the Yanks could probably "downgrade" one of the pitchers, likely Dunn. Buster Olney "confirms" the talks are continuing and "sources" say the odds of something happening are in the 20-30% range. Head spinning yet? No? There's also mention on ESPN's site is that the Yankees could get both Curtis Granderson and Edwin Jackson. I don't see that happening so I'm not even going there.

Jon Heyman has a new tweet since I started writing this post. The Yanks would get Granderson and would give up Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson, and Phil Coke. No more Mike Dunn. No more prospects to the Yankees. At least that's how I'm reading it. I wrote earlier today I thought the Yanks were giving up too much and could get more. I could get behind the deal as it was this morning. I could get behind it as Heyman has it. Time will tell what's going to happen. Gut feeling says it'll get done and it'll get done soon.

Ah, the Winter Meetings. You gotta love it.

Peace, love and Pinstripes,
