Granderson goes deep again

Curtis Granderson was aiming for the fences again yesterday, this time dedicating a new playground in the Bronx by participating in a home run contest with a big red Whiffle ball bat.

“A lot of pressure, just like playing in the Bronx,” he said.

Of course, he was asked about the MVP vote, with his former teammate Justin Verlander winning the award ahead of Granderson and (my pick) Jose Bautista.

“You look at a lot of different reasons why the person should be voted in that,” Granderson said. “And Verlander did anything and everything to help his team win as many ballgames as possible. ?Being a former teammate of his, a friend of his, I just have to give congratulations to him — not only for that, but for the Cy Young Award. It couldn’t have gone to a better guy.”
