Granderson, Tigers agree on 5-year deal

After Curtis Granderson’s breakout season in 2007, the Detroit Tigers have seen fit to lock him up for five years.  Granderson’s contract will earn him $30.25 million over that period.  With a club option, the contract could be worth up to $43.25 million. 

“The Tigers held all the chips and didn’t have to do anything,” Granderson said. “I’m very happy with the way everything happened.”

Granderson hit .302 with 24 homeruns and 74 rbis in 2007 not to mention 23 triples and 26 stolen bases. 

Curtis graduated from the University of Illinois-Chicago (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign’s sister campus) and so far is the the only one from there to make the majors.  One thing I didn’t know till today:  He graduated with two degrees.
