• Curtis Granderson - 195 pounds of thunder

    Curtis Granderson hit 41 home runs last season. The number was somewhat astounding. Certainly, Granderson had shown some power numbers in the past with the Tigers, but nothing like 41 homers. And the skeptic may say that no player has benefited more from playing in the new Yankee Stadium than Granderson. But twenty of those homers came on the road last season. And guess what? He is on the same torrid home run rate this season with 17. Recent national broadcasts have mentioned that most of those homers have occurred at home. Something like his first seven were hit in Yankee Stadium. But that trend is reversing and now six of his seventeen have been hit on the road.
