The Tigers can't let this "Curtis Granderson can't play" thing go

Steve Kornacki at reports the following from TigerFest yesterday:

Dombrowski didn't hedge on his decisions Saturday during TigerFest at Comerica Park. During an hour-long Q & A session with announcers Dan Dickerson and Mike Stone and fans, he was asked who would replace Granderson in the leadoff position.

"You know," Dombrowski began, "we didn't really have a leadoff hitter last year."

The fans grew restless. A few said in hushed tones, "Wow."

He picked on the negative reaction, adding, "I'm not taking anything away from Curtis Granderson." He quickly complimented Granderson's many abilities, most notably his power.

Thank you, Steve.

I know this.

The Yankees are snickering.
