You Know It's Slow When...

You have Q&A sessions with players regarding their thoughts on snow and Christmas shopping, among other things: What's your favorite holiday movie?

Granderson: "A Christmas Story." I look forward to seeing that holiday marathon on TV. Are you a last-minute shopper or do you get your gift-buying out of the way early?

Granderson: Usually I tend to get it out of the way early. This year I've been a little behind because I've been running around and still trying to see people. I still haven't gotten hints from everybody. Usually they'll give you an idea what they want. But the big problem I'm running into right now is wrapping. I haven't done it in so long that I have to find someone to help. There used to be a place in the mall that would wrap gifts, but they don't have it anymore.

These are just a couple examples of the Christmas interview with Tigers youngster Curtis Granderson.

It's good to see that the players are human beings just like the rest of us, but man I'm itching for some offseason action of some sort. Some news, please!

Christmas and New Years is out of the way, so I hope there is more to write about now as we count down the days to Spring Training. If history is any indication of the present, though, we will not have anything to talk about until the day following the Super Bowl when the Tigers sign an often injured free agent for something looked at as way above market value.

Stay tuned.
