With the three way trade between the Yankees, Tigers and Diamondbacks confirmed and Curtis Granderson in pinstripes, the new Yankee center fielder and Brian Cashman both talked to the media today and Chad Jennings has the report.

Granderson's saying the right things: if Girardi wants number 28, it's his, he says. Cashman had a few strategic notes, as well. He said that Granderson is the center fielder and he doesn't see there being a situation where he would play left field. At this moment, Cash has him penciled in as the second hitter against righty starters and somewhere in the back of the lineup against lefties. But, if Damon was to return, he'd probably be back in the second spot with Granderson moving to a position where he'd get more opportunities to drive in runs.
