Curtis Granderson

  1. The MLBPA elects its player reps

    Curtis Granderson Reuters

    When I had a real job my boss used to call me the “shop steward.” But that was because (a) I was lazy; and (b) he hated unions and thought that laziness was the primary trait of unions. It was a great office. In reality, union representatives do things, all while still having to focus…

  2. Russell Martin wants $9-10 million a year over four years

    Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York has a source telling him what Russell Martin‘s contract demands are: I’m told Martin is looking for four years and $9-10M per. Doubt Yanks will do that. — Andrew Marchand (@AndrewMarchand) November 27, 2012   $10 million is what Curtis Granderson and Hiroki Kuroda made this past season. With…

  3. Tigers broadcasters also have no use for WAR

    Nov 19, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    Drew Smyly

    The Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association has been handing out a Tigers Rookie of the Year award since 1969, counting Mark Fidrych, Lou Whitaker, Curtis Granderson and Justin Verlander among the previous winners. On Monday, they announced the 2012 award, giving it to outfielder Quintin Berry over left-hander Drew Smyly. Berry hit .258/.330/.354 with two homers,…

  4. Yankees considering using Curtis Granderson in corner outfield spot, Brett Gardner in center field

    AP Granderson Gardner

    It’s surprising this hasn’t been a bigger controversy at some point over the past three years, but the Yankees are finally considering making a change in center field. Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com hears that the Yankees are mulling over moving Curtis Granderson to a corner outfield spot and using Brett Gardner in center field. While…

  5. Yankees exercise options on Curtis Granderson, Robinson Cano, David Aardsma

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    curtis granderson getty

    In a pair of no-brainer moves the Yankees have exercised their 2013 options on Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano. Granderson and Cano will each make $15 million, and they’ll both be eligible for free agency next winter. Despite a pair of ugly postseason performances obviously Granderson and Cano on one-year commitments are easy calls. Mark…

  6. Ichiro Suzuki “strongly wants to stay with the Yankees”

    Oct 25, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Ichiro

    Joel Sherman of the New York Post spoke to an unnamed “person close to” Ichiro Suzuki who says the impending free agent “strongly wants to stay with the Yankees.” According to Sherman’s source Suzuki “enjoyed playing in a professional, winning atmosphere with so many contemporaries near his age range” and a one-year contract “in the…

  7. Heyman: Yankees have no interest in retaining Nick Swisher

    Oct 19, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Nick Swisher

    According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Yankees will make free-agent-to-be Nick Swisher a qualifying offer this winter, but they have “no interest” in re-signing him to a multiyear deal. The qualifying offer, which would be worth about $13.5 million for 2013, would secure the Yankees a draft pick if Swisher leaves as a free…

  8. This just isn’t the time for Yankees to trade Alex Rodriguez

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    As far as I can tell, Alex Rodriguez committed two crimes this month. He played pretty horribly in the playoffs, which hardly put him among the minority of Yankees hitters, and he embarrassed his team by reportedly trying to get a woman’s digits from the dugout. In the case of the latter, absolutely no one…

  9. Ranking the blame as Yankees get swept

    Oct 18, 2012, 7:47 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    It takes more than a couple of goats for a team to get swept in a seven-game series. Let’s run down the five people most responsible for the Yankee meltdown. Derek Jeter‘s ankle not being a person, we’ll leave it out of this. 5. Eric Chavez – Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily, yet Chavez was worse.…

  12. Looking ahead to tonight’s playoff action

    Oct 17, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lohse delivers a pitch to a Washington Nationals batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louis

    Sad jams:  this could be the last time we have multiple baseball games on one day this year. What’s on tap: Giants vs. Cardinals, 4PM Eastern: Fox:  The series is tied 1-1, but in some ways it feels like the Cardinals are behind. Probably because their starting pitching is in need of some stability. Indeed,…

  14. Verlander vs. The Yankees: it hardly seems fair

    Oct 16, 2012, 6:39 AM EDT

    justin verlander getty

    The Tigers are up 2-0 in the ALCS. They are back home in Detroit. The Yankees offense is sending scribes to the thesaurus to find new words to describe their anemic offense ( feeble, infirm, pallid, sickly, wan, impotent, debilitated, decrepit, enervated, faint, flaccid, forceless, frail, impuissant).  And, oh yeah, Justin Verlander is on the mound…

  15. Chris Carpenter evens things up against Giants with RBI double

    Oct 15, 2012, 8:53 PM EDT

    Getty Chris Carpenter

    Ryan Vogelsong retired David Freese and Daniel Descalso to begin the top of the second inning, but he paid dearly for issuing a two-out walk to Pete Kozma. Chris Carpenter — yes, Chris Carpenter — followed by doubling into the left-center field gap to score Kozma and tie the game at 1-1. Carpenter went 2-for-3…

  16. Brett Gardner could get a shot in the starting lineup

    Oct 15, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    Brett Gardner Getty

    Yankees manager Joe Girardi has been resistant to use Brett Gardner in the starting lineup because he only has four at-bats in the majors (including one on Saturday) since his elbow injury in mid-April, but the team’s continued struggles on offense have them reconsidering matters. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was on the “The Michael…

  17. Phil Coke shows that anybody can pitch the ninth

    Oct 14, 2012, 8:08 PM EDT

    Phil Coke

    Did you ever notice that when baseball broadcasters start talking about the ninth-inning mentality and about all the setup men who couldn’t handle the closer’s role, they never go on to name names? Moments after John Smoltz went on his little spiel about how not everyone can pitch the ninth Sunday, Phil Coke finished shutting down the…

  19. It’s just not the postseason without Derek Jeter

    Oct 14, 2012, 1:49 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    The Yankees were already going it without Mariano Rivera this month, a strange sight to everyone who has followed baseball since the mid-1990s. But then Rivera was only out there for one or two innings per night. Derek Jeter was the immovable object. The Yankees have played in 158 postseason games since 1996, and Jeter…

    The Tigers have suddenly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this ALCS Game 1 Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

    After he was benched in favor of Eric Chavez for the decisive Game 5 of the ALDS against the Orioles yesterday, Alex Rodriguez is back in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the ALCS tonight against Doug Fister and the Tigers. Rodriguez will play third base and bat sixth in his return. It certainly…

    Just as Justin Verlander pitched the Tigers past the A’s, CC Sabathia proved to be the dominant presence as the Yankees beat the Orioles 3-1 in Friday’s decisive Game 5 and advanced to the ALCS. Sabathia, coming off a win in Game 1 in which he nearly went the distance, did go nine this time…

    Washington Nationals' Jayson Werth rounds the bases after hitting a game-winning walk-off solo home run against the St. Louis Cardinals during Game 4 of their MLB NLDS baseball series in Washington

    Four best of five playoff series, four Game 5s. Life is good. We do it again two more times tonight, with the following action on tap: Orioles at Yankees, 5:07 PM ET, TBS:  It has been an offense-free zone for both teams, but it’s not surprising given the big names and big contracts that the Yankees…
