CC Sabathia, on new teammate Curtis Granderson:
Hopefully he’ll hit like 50 homers in our stadium. He was always a tough out for me.
If you’re curious, for his career Granderson is 3-for-19 (.158) with seven strikeouts and zero walks against Sabathia. In fact, 115 different batters have had at least 20 career plate appearances against Sabathia and Granderson has the third-worst OPS, ahead of only Bengie Molina and Angel “Tough Out” Berroa.
You don’t see this every day …
Twins second baseman Brian Dozier hit a blast to dead-center field in the first inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Tigers and it neither cleared the fence, nor banged off the fence, nor dropped in front of it.
Instead, the ball found a comfortable home inside the wall …
This isn’t the first wall-sticker for Dozier. He put a ball in the bullpen fence in Washington during an exhibition game against the Nationals back in 2016.
