    Is it too early? Please stop and ask this question in 10-12 years.

    Do we really need another one of these threads?

    azzurribaggio, how long have you been following baseball? Why are you trying to make conclusions on a ROOKIE vs an ALL-STAR after the first month of the season?

    It's not too early. Austin Jackson will be a .350 career hitter. Granderson is nothing more than a .230 hitter.

    Think before you post.

    It's too early to tell, but I'd rather have Austin Jackson....just because I'm such a huge fan. I feel like he's going to develop power like Cano did.

    Granderson has had a largely awful first month with the bat while Jackson has looked like Justin Upton.

    Cashman knew he was giving up a light-hitting RH CF with speed in favor of an older, more expensive LH CF with power - things will likely never again look as bad as they do right now. Jackson isn't this good and Granderson isn't this bad.
    SI: Do you have a secret ambition?
    Igawa: That's secret.

    so he will be one of the top three batting average hitters in baseball history...stemming back 150 years????

    wow...you must be clairvoyant. You know he will be a lifetime .350 hitter. Care to make a wager? Not to mention that batting average is not a good indicator of one's value.

    Hey Azz, you might find your answer in the other thread on the same exact topic.

    what? proclaiming that A. Jackson will be a lifetime.350 hitter? I can't imagine why you weren't taken seriously.

    I know right. I mean, he'll probably end up being the best hitter in baseball history. At least it seems that way by what some opinions on this board are.

    Given the posts I've seen around here on the topic, you'll excuse me if I didn't sense the sarcasm.

    Yes, you are excused lol. It's insane that people are talking about AJax like the second coming.

    I mean, I hated to see the guy go too. But holy cow, the overreaction is epic.

    I swear. For some of you, this must be your first season watching baseball. Do you all remember Chris Shelton in 2006? Also of the Tigers, he was the MVP of April who rapidly faded away by the end of the season. This season is LONG.

    Even with this DL situation the trade will work out in our favor.
