• The Return Of “K”urtis Granderson

    Posted by on April 25th, 2013 · Comments (3)

    It’s pretty safe to assume that Ben Francisco is a goner, from the Yankees roster, when Curtis Granderson comes off the disabled list this year.

    But, who from the Yankees line-up gets the boot when the King of “K” returns?

    Do you move Gardner or Ichiro to the bench?  If not, does Vernon Wells become the right-handed DH and then is a part-time player?

    Overall, Wells is hitting – although not so much in his last two games.  And, Ichiro has been very poor to start the season.  So, does that mean the future Hall of Famer become a bench player?

    This is going to be very interesting to see what the Yankees do when Granderson comes back.

    What move would you make?

      Ben Francisco is a goner! I would agree with that. Playing time would be a little different. Against RH pitching, I would put Gardie in left, Grandy in Center, and Ichio in right. Hafner as DH
      Against LH pitching, Wells in left, Gardner in CF, Boesch in right and Granderson as DH.

      I’d say that Wells would be the odd man out. I think he was traded here with that in mind.

      Ben Francisco is likely gone, I agree. Beyond that, Girardi will do what he always does – he will play the lefty-righty combos and the stats sheet in his little black book.
