Curtis Granderson goes crazy as the Yankees extend their lead

7 Comments

I gave the Yankees-Rays game short shrift in the recaps this morning because (a) I was preoccupied with the Steinbrenner monument; and (b) it wasn’t exactly a drama-filled game.

But one guy definitely deserves more props, and that’s Curtis Granderson. He hit two homers,
walked twice, drove in five and stole a base. Granderson has four homers and 11 RBI in his last five games, and has a seven-game hitting streak.

On the season — one which many have thought to be disappointing — Granderson is at .249/.326/.464.  In 2009 he hit a damn nigh identical .249/.327/.453.  So, while some projected him to go crazy with that short rightfield porch in Yankee Stadium,  Granderson basically is who we thought he was.
