More Yankee Fantasyland Nonsense

Meet the next great Yankee outfielder.

The Yankees are on the verge of acquiring Curtis Granderson for a bunch of crap.  Besides being a better commentator than most of the guys on Baseball Tonight, Curtis Granderson is really fast and really good at hitting home runs off of right-handed pitchers to right field.  In short, he’ll be amazing in Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees have, once again, video-game-afied their batting order.  How many Yankee fans playing MLB 2009 altered rosters to “trade” for Granderson?  How many fantasy baseball teams will be less potent than the Yankees batting order? It’s much easier to hate the Yankees when they just sign everybody’s best players.  It’s not fair when they start trading for them, too, and really good guys at that.

Damn this.

  1. Just to add a note on this heist: according to Joe Posnanski, Granderson will be the 11th-highest paid player on the Yankees next season. And if they resign Johnny Damon, as it seems likely they will, Granderson may bat as high as 5th or as low as 7th in their lineup. SEVENTH!
