Granderson scratched

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 22, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Curtis Granderson has been scratched from today’s lineup with a strained right oblique. No clue how serious it is, and haven’t heard yet who’s taking his spot in the lineup.

    Ugh, terrible news – oblique injuries are never good. What sucks is that he was having such a great spring……

  2. ac1 March 22nd, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    man granderson was mashing this spring. i hope this doesnt make him unwittingly change his swing…

  3. teddy9000 March 22nd, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    how he hurt his oblique. not good news, but oh well

  4. Erin March 22nd, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Hopefully it’s not too serious for the Grandyman.

  5. Fran the original March 22nd, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Hope this doesn’t set him back too much. Remember last season when he was hurt early on.

    I’m glad I didn’t read that LA Times article…….the writer sounds like a nasty person. Thames is a good guy who did a great job for us last year……If he’s bad in the OF (and he is), then teams shouldn’t play him there; they should let him do what he does best. What kind of a thing is that to say to someone?

  7. yankeefeminista March 22nd, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    Well, let’s hope it isn’t serious. Just might be precautionary. I thought Mesa was taking Grandy’s place, Chad.

  8. Benny Blanco March 22nd, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Come on with the damn Injuries already.

  9. yankeefeminista March 22nd, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    I didn’t read the article either, but the writer sounds like a mental midget.

    Who “scratched” Curtis ?

    Was it an irrate, female Boston fan ?

    I hope he’ll be OK ?

    :)

    MTU, Carl, I responded in previous thread. Got to fly. Good one, all.

  12. Warning Track Power March 22nd, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    So many players injure the oblique. Can someone explain how this happens?
    Is there a doctor in the house?

    Oblique this
    Oblique that

  13. MTU March 22nd, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    Let’s just see what the tests show.

    Chamberlain is back. He had a similar injury.

    Might be nothin’

    :)

    JAP-

    Have a good day.

    Watch out for all the neutrinos out there.

    ;)

  15. CountryClub March 22nd, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    The yanks have been pretty lucky injury wise this spring. Hopefully this is nothing more than missing a few days (like Joba).

  16. upstate kate March 22nd, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    WTP
    I was just thinking the same thing, there do seem to be many oblique injuries reported.

    Betsy/Yankeefem
    you were smart not to read that article. Lesson learned, I wont read anything by him again!

  17. ac1 March 22nd, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    not as concerned about granderson missing time as i am about how this will impact his swing… he missed a month last year and it took him half the year to get back on track.

    this may not be as serious, but it can mess with that swing he has going on now.

  18. stuckey99 March 22nd, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    6-7 years ago (and before that). We would have read in the daily news that “Jeter tweaked a muscle”.

    Now the 24-7 news cycle means we get very specific information and the specificity scares people.

    “strained oblique” sounds more ominous that “pulled muscle”.

    Players get pulled muscles all the time. No big deal.

  19. Patrick March 22nd, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Oblique strain is just a muscle strain/pull/tear, it can happen for the same reasons you pull any other muscle

  20. blake March 22nd, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    I pulled a calf muscle yesterday and I still have to work :(

  21. Erin March 22nd, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    BloggingBombers Obliques are to the Yankees in 2011 what hamstrings were in 2007. Where’s Marty Miller when you need him?

  22. Benny Blanco March 22nd, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    Ac1, I was thinking the same thing. I dont want this latest injury to impair the progress that he’s made thus far.

    ————————

    a pull sounds worse than a strain to me.

    no reason for folks to get too worked up here……injuries get blown out of proportion on slow news days.

  24. Patrick March 22nd, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    The reason why an oblique strain is worse than straining another muscle is there really isn’t any treatment for it except for rest. You can’t exactly immobilize your abdomen…

  25. Warning Track Power March 22nd, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    Erin-Why go there? Do not remind us of the string of hamstrings injuries the team suffered in 2007.
    A nightmare all over again.
    There goes my morning!!

    Like sleeping. I was almost positive i tore my ACL in the night last night. turned out it was nothing.

    WTP-I had to laugh when I saw that he had posted that, because I was trying to think what year it was that everybody seemed to have hamstring issues. I was thinking it was 2008.

  29. MTU March 22nd, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    It’s one thing to injure the oblique and and another entirely to injure the obtuse.

    That could be serious.

    Don’t want to be too straightforward.

    No fun in that.

    Enjoy the game folks.

    :)

    Blake,

    You mean your office doesn’t have a DL?!

  31. stuckey99 March 22nd, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    “I pulled a calf muscle yesterday and I still have to work :(

    Did your fanbase worry about you on the Blake blog?

  32. blake March 22nd, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Fran,

    Not for me….Im always day to day ;)

  33. Chad Jennings March 22nd, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    Mesa taking over in center field, leading off.

    I feel your pain. I got a bad sunburn on my arms and my legs hurt from running around the other night.
