Curtis Granderson has a strained oblique

Mar 22, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT


I sort of root for Curtis Granderson. I watched him play a lot when he was with the Tigers and rather like him. While his last couple of years — and the fact that he turned 30 last week — don’t give me hope that he’ll ever fulfill that All-Star promise he had when he first came up, I have hoped that he’d return to 2007 form at some point just because, well, just because.

Unfortunately his 2011 season is not started out well: he has a strained oblique muscle and may have to begin the season on the DL.

Lots of strained obliques this spring. Strained obliques are the new black, I guess.

    I hate to see this happen to Grandy, hope it won’t thwart his momentum and he will be back soon. I guess we got Andruw Jones for a purpose.

    What is up with oblique injuries this spring? I count at least four already.

    “Strained obliques are the new black, I guess.”

    Is that to say that Strained Obliques are athletic and graceful, as opposed to scrappy or gritty?

      Well he said “new black” so I’m sure he meant it the other way around. So since this is Granderson we’re talking about; I think in the new paradigm he’ll be known as Mr. Scrappy McGrit himself.
      Now I’m off to change my log in handle to”NewBlack”…

    he has had a rough offseason:

      Well hell, and I thought I was having trouble sleeping before. Now this raises the interesting philosophical question that will render me even further sleepless; what would my theme song be?….maybe the Basement Jaxx “Where’s your Head At”?
