Granderson being eased in

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 29, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Joe Girardi said Curtis Granderson felt no soreness in his groin, but the Yankees manager wants to ease him back onto everyday duty.

Granderson never played a full nine innings during his rehab assignment, and today the Yankees have a day game after a night game, so Granderson is getting the day off.

Girardi said he might give Granderson one more day off during the upcoming Toronto road trip.

“He’ll be full go after that,” Girardi said.

    Not a surprise that Granderson is out for today’s game. Its gonna make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside once we get a full line-up out there (sans Posada, for now).

    Typical-I wasn’t around to see last night’s game, but was looking forward to seeing Granderson play today. I have the worst luck. LOL

    It was great to see Grandy back last night, contributing with the glove and the bat. But I understand taking it slow with him. Hopefully the day off will have helped Arod and he will be ready to rumble today.

    Granderson seems to always have a genuine smile on his face.

    He’s like the anti-Milton Bradley. He’s good for the game.

    Pedroia- “I work more than anybody in baseball. That’s a fact, too,”

    Good thing Trot Nixon is retired so no offense could be taken.

    I’m at the stadium hoping to see a good game today. Go Yankees!

    Kenny Williams is not going to trade Thornton….Jenks and Putz will be made available and Thornton is being made the closer….

    In order to pry Thornton away from him you’d have to severely overpay for him to do what be the 7th inning guy?

    Joba is the 8th inning guy on this team and I doubt that Ca$h goes into the trade market for a relief pitcher as the trade/FA market has never worked out well for him the past when he brought back bullpen arms. They have had much more success recently solving those problems from within the organization and I suspect will continue that route before looking outside.

    look to guys like Romulo,Melancon,Ring,Nova or Alby if they feel they are an arm short in the ‘pen.

    Everybody loves Thornton including the Sox…

    Ledger_Yankees Looks like Posada’s taking swings in the indoor cages. Hitting off a tee.

    Just looked at Vlady stats. .342 12hr so far this year.

    Nice start for a player that quite a few posters on this blog said was done (this off season).

    “I work more than anybody in baseball. That’s a fact, too”- pedroia

    works his mouth more, that is and that’s a fact too.

    randy l -

    Dontcha just hate when people say stuff like that – in such broad terms? Now, if he had said, “I work as hard as anybody in baseball,” that woulda been something that I could take seriously. No way he knows exactly how hard everybody else in baseball works. And didn’t ARod catch a lot of flack for saying pretty much the same thing a couple of years ago?????

    Vlad always raked in Arlington. Look at his away stats.

    Alex did a segment on the kids show on YES that made me think of something I believe you were theorizing during the off season.

    He talked about training your body for speed. Said doing all your workouts fast- swinging a bat, fielding, running stairs, doing shuttle drills, etc….. If you want your body to react fast, you need to train it fast.

  15. CR9 May 29th, 2010 at 12:02 pm

    I believe Pedroia when he says that. And Im sure he meant “as much as anybody!”

    As for “if Pedroia’s having pains, they must be ‘little’ pains.” LMAO!!!!!! I spit sweet tea all over because of that one!!!

  16. randy l. May 29th, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    doreen-

    exactly. how does he know how hard everyone works.

    plus he’s an infielder. he’d cry if he were a catcher :)

    he has no idea how easy it is paying second vs. catching.

    second base is like a vacation.

    Exactly Tarheelyank – just goes to show that the posters on these blogs are filled with opinions but that is what they are opinions. That is why I take it with a grain of salt when posters on this blog or any other blog offer their opinion – kind of like the 5th starter debate in ST, etc. One poster on this blog does not really know anything more than the other poster – it is just one poster’s opinion vs. another.

    pat-

    speed training is a neuroscience thing that they are just learning about. but alex is right. you have to train fast to go fast.

    but ironically super slow motion training is good for learning a new motor skill.

    say if teixeira wanted to get on his front leg more it would feel so strange that if he did it fast he wouldn’t really get it down. he’d have to go through really slow reps at first to teach his body the new moves.

    once they’re learned, then fast training comes in like alex says.

    you know ur bad when Shelley Duncan is batting fifth!
    i like him tho, but wow.

    He’ll probalby hit one out today.
    if the yanks are winning when he does, he’ll get a huge pop.

    Thankfully there were others here who understood the point and didn’t dismiss it out of hand.

  22. trisha - #28 on its way!!! May 31st, 2010 at 12:40 am

    I suggest possibilites. Just like I suggested yesterday that it was a possibility that CC could have lost focus after seeing a pitcher get hit in the head. Without getting in CC’s head, there’s not a person here who could know for sure whether that played into it. Yet J-face in particular used that opportunity to make fun of my baseball knowledge (actually positing that I had none).

  23. trisha - #28 on its way!!! May 31st, 2010 at 12:41 am

    assumptions

  24. trisha - #28 on its way!!! May 31st, 2010 at 12:42 am

    CR9 – people who think outside of the box create unending dissonance for people who don’t. Because inside-the-box are limited in what they can imagine, they think that outside-the-box people are off their rockers. Inside-the-box people have their own proscribed boundaries to thinking and if you challenge their asumptions they get extremely upset.

  25. trisha - #28 on its way!!! May 31st, 2010 at 12:44 am

    Obviously I like to challenge asumptions and think about all possibilities. I remember having discussions with the same guy who told me I was crazy when I said that Robby Cano had the skills to be a premier defensive infielder and he insisted that he had average baseball instincts and would always be an average defensive infielder. I recognized that about Robby right away. The guy was a total inside the box person.

  26. trisha - #28 on its way!!! May 31st, 2010 at 12:46 am

    Another discussion we had dealt with the asumption (his asumption/a baseball maxim according to him) that outfielders had to be power hitters and that infielders were generally not. It made no sense to me whatsoever that it HAD to be the case and so I challenged that and wanted to know the reasons behind the theory.
