    And, he’s batting .216 over this period.

    Isn’t it time to bench him?

    And, if you think this is a fluke, guess again.

    From August 1, 2009 through September 4, 2012, Granderson has come to the plate 2,049 times and struck out 500 times.  And, over that period, he’s batted .246 (in 485 games).

    The dude has serious holes in his swing.  That’s why the Tigers traded him.  Why Brian Cashman ignored this, I dunno?

      Shit is getting straight ugly!!!

      I’m so happy to be seeing my Giants tonight, hopefully they can do something that’ll make me happier than the Yanks.

      In the last two weeks, my privates hurt a lot at the end of each Yankee game.

      Remember the knock on A-Jax were those holes in his swing.

      I wonder if Cashman even knows how good Austin Jackson, Ian Kennedy, Tyler Clippard, et al, are now…

      I would like to see him benched if only to get him some rest.

      Yeah, it’s like Granderson will never be 2nd in the MVP voting in a season.

      Oh, wait….

      When Gardner went down the Yankees really lost any true center fielder to take his place over the course of the season. Maybe he’s playin’ in pain. Right now he’s playing like Rob Deere, or is that John?

      @ Steve L.:
      Steve, Kennedy is having a Phil Hughes/Javy Vazquez year, Clippard pitched 10 innings for the Yanks, the following year 37, then something happened-he figure “it” out or something. And for all the talk about A-Jax, this is the first year that New York fans wouldn’t have demanded his trade or demotion.Since I’m really in it for the Yanks, I’ll go awhile and just pay cursory attention to the NL, and only the Al teams that are a threat. It’s easy blame Cashman. But the upshot of the Granderson deal was that the Yankees got a CF who has hit the most HR’s since the start of last season, draws a lot of walks,plays a passable defense, and who’s an excellent baserunner. Boone Logan, and the once near-great Vazquez. They gave up a Kennedy who’s had one nice season, w/ no pressure, a CF in Jackson who might become an elite player, and a high ceiling minor league pitcher who’s been on the DL for two years. If you had the gift of foresight, would you have made the deal? We really won’t know for another 5 years, and maybe not even then. So maybe Cashman should have a few more steps built, before he has to walk to the gallows…..

      @ KPOcala:Oh, almost forgot: Omar Moreno, Claudell Washington, Jerry Mumphrey,Roberto Kelly…..remember CF is not an easy spot to fill with a complete player. Or as the song once said, “just be thankful for what you got”…..
