    Not surprised they're moving him to LF once Grandy gets back... Stupid.

    Maybe they're going to extend Gardner here soon at LF value rather than CF value. Maybe Cashman is lying. Maybe they'll just shade Granderson to RF and let Gardner range through a wider space.

    And maybe they really are this dumb.

    What Agent would be fooled by this? Same thing with people thinking other teams can be fooled by this.

    Someone else asked the same question. I'm guessing the teams that thought Torii Hunter was an elite fielder outside of 2-3 years, thought Podsednik, Yuniesky, or Pierre deserved a roster spot. Or that Ibanez or Mark Reynolds are capable of manning a field position.

    The way it looks right now, OUR team is the one being fooled into believing the Granderson is not only a serviceable CFer, but better than arguably the best CFer in the game.

    What do you think is going on? Either Cashman is bluffing or he's making the wrong call.

    That AB was beautiful.

    Props to Gardner, that was a hell of an AB.

    He should have caught that triple though.

    The LF thing has got to be temporary, right? Granderson is likely gone after this year, and Gardner will still be under team control...not sure why it's happening at all (like most of you), but I have to imagine they project him as a CF long-term...

    Sucks how he's going to be shunned to a corner outfield position when Granderson comes back.
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    As long as he is in the OF, it does not suck.

    Gardner should be more aggressive at the plate. Taking the first two pitches for strikes, than swinging at one in the dirt is becoming his trademark. The opposition clearly has his number. He should stop trying to walk or run the the pitch count up and use his skills to get on base.

    His trademark is actually long AB's. He actually has crazy high contact rates. I know, research and facts are a total pain.

    Which means he doesn't swing and miss very often, it's true. Unfortunately, he has crazy high looking-strike rates, too.

    Well, what are the implications of that? His production is what it is- how he gets there is secondary. He also has very high pitches/AB rates- a very good thing

    I know it seems like every AB starts w/ 2 strikes, but with his contact rates he can produce in spite of that

    With two strikes, he is a career .214/.297/.286 hitter. He's actually gotten worse than that with more time in the majors: .199/.278/.262 in 2011, .175/.262/.455 so far this year. So apparently he actually can't produce in spite of that.
