      “… If Curtis Granderson keeps this up, the Jason Bay comparisons will stop. They’ll be too generous…”

      Did Bay start his first full season in Flushing with a BAVG below .121 or more than 23 K’s in his first 66 ABs? Austin Jackson is off to a nice start at .309…

      It’s funny. If Cashman doesn’t swap Jackson for Granderson, then he still has Jackson and doesn’t need to spend money on Gardner or Ellsbury. But, then again, when does Cashman worry about having younger, better, players and spending money?

      If the Yankees had Jackson they may not have needed Ellsbury but they’d still have Gardner on the roster.

      The reality of the situation is that Austin Jackson has a lot more singles than Granderson and plays better defense.

      Granderson has far more power and walks a little more. They both strike out at nearly the same rate.

      It’s kinda silly.

      Granderson was younger and better than Johnny Damon.

      And Cashman still has the same number of A.L. pennants won since 2009: 0.

      The Diamondbacks coveted Kennedy – yet somehow Dombrowski ended up with a Cy Young Award winning starting pitcher in Scherzer and Jackson, and John Cashman Jr.’s son, Brian, ended up with only Kurtis Granderson. Dombrowski produced a +15.2 bWAR differential by trading Edwin Jackson and the K-Man for Scherzer and Jackson…

      Cashman (http://nypost.com/2012/02/10/alleged-stalker-not-done-with-cashman/), of course, has one of the worst trade differentials in terms of WAR for G.M.s with at least three years of experience from 2000-13.

      … And the K-Man is now at .116 through with 24 K’s…

      To me, this is a classic example of post hoc ergo propter hoc…

      Play your bullshit games with Evan. No one else is interested.

      Either that, or it’s circular logic… I did mean well.

      Granderson seems to strike out a lot less at 5280 ft. than he does at sea level, for some reason… The Mile High City might have been a better fit for him.
