    He couldn't see anything but fastballs last year either.

    This year he saw a record number of breaking balls... and it's been worse for the series.

    Gardner must really, really be hurt since he isn't starting over Granderson.

    I think it's more about having 3 at bats since April. It takes a ton of optimism to think he's going to step in and just hit

    Absolutely. But it's probably more likely

    I just want him to get on base.
    At least he can draw a walk or beat out an infield grounder or lay down a bunt.
    Granderson can't do anything. You've seen his stats for the 4 games right?
    If you want to PH for Gardy later in the game (if the situation calls for the long ball) and hope Grandy can strike lightning, then fine.

    I am beginning to think that it borders on delusional but here's hoping that you are right. He's in the line-up so the Yankees desperately need for him do do something positive with the bat.

    My point isn't that I think it's even likely that he's going to do anything. It's that Gardner himself said he's basically in March shape at the end of the year, and he hasn't played really since then. It's a lot to ask him to step into a pivotal playoff game and produce.

    And that's why you dont bench granderson!

    I told you all so.

    Re: 2012 Curtis Granderson Performance Thread

    20/20 hindsight, but since his last AB from yesterday's game you could see him getting better. I'm excited about him for...don't jink it...next series.

    Exactly. Once he started making contact, hitting fly balls near the warning track, I knew it was only a matter of time. A-rod can't hold Granderson's jock. Grandy hit 43 HR's this year, and that is why he plays and Alex sits.

    I thought that Granderson should sit and I'm glad that I was wrong. That run turned out to be big when you consider what happened in the 8th inning as it gave CC/Yankees much needed breathing room.

    That was one of the worst at bats I've ever seen.
