I hated trading Curtis Granderson, but seeing the development of Austin Jackson has made it more palatable.

Plus we got Max Scherzer, Daniel Schlereth, and Phil Coke in that trade.

Austin Jackson is only 25 years old, while Curtis Granderson is already 31 years old.

Granderson has developed into a heck of a power hitter, but Austin Jackson is developing into a more well rounded player, who will hit for a lot higher average than Granderson and still has a lot of upside to his overall game.

That said, I'll always root for Curtis Granderson, as he is a good guy and was one of my favorite Tigers.
