I just had to post this video. As most of you know, Curtis Granderson is my favorite player. And while I think the trade that sent him to the Yankees has worked out well for the Tigers, he’s still my man. It is sort of the same thing as growing up a Tiger fan but have Reggie Jackson as my favorite player.
The video below is of Curtis Granderson robbing Grady Sizemore of a home run in Cleveland with Justin Verlander on the mound. I’m pretty sure this was in 2009 but I could be mistaken.
Curtis is still recovering from surgery on his pinky. Hopefully, for the Yankees, he’ll return after the All Star break.
Just a little note. The first time I remember watching baseball was during the 1977 World Series. My Mom was a baseball fanatic. My Dad was working nights and my brothers and sister were already in bed. My Mom let me stay up with her and watch. It was game six, October 18th, 1977. I watched Reggie hit three home runs on three consecutive pitches from three different pitchers. After that, I was hooked and Reggie was my man.
Anyway, I can’t sleep and I have a cold so felt like sharing this.

I think you have to much free time….why don’t you teach yourself a useful skill? Learn to count cards play blackjack………trade options..create and market a non collateralized debt obligation…….something. Get well you have a home stand to handicap.
Who can ever forget the chants of “Reggie, Reggie, Reggie” as he stepped to the plate prior to the third homer.. I was actually rooting for the dodgers, as in anyone but NY mode, but that moment gave me goose bumps.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see the Tigers make a trade at the deadline to get Granderson, and put him in LF. That would fill that hole, even though Tui has been a bright spot. But it’s obvious JL doesn’t favor him.
Sark, I agree! I’d love to get Granderson back and I’m not sure what JL’s deal is with Tui. Why bring in Dirks for him last night? It reminds me of 08 and 09 when he constantly put Rayburn and Thomas in for defensive replacements and Thomas looked worse than Albert “Joey” Bell in the outfield. He reminds me of Sparky in that he has favorites that he gives more opportunities to than they deserve.
