Joe Posnanski is a knowledgable and likable sports writer for Sports Illustrated and the Kansas City Star. His website is here. He just put up a short (for him) post about the Yankees’ theft of Curtis Granderson from the Detroit Tigers. Here is the link to the article.
I’m posting this article because it contains some fascinating and horrifying facts about the 2009 and 2010 Yankees. If you are a baseball stat head like me, it’s worthwhile reading. There is a morbid, masochistic fascination driving my sharing of this article. Like the way you want to talk about the deer you saw get hit by a truck on the highway, even though it gives you the heebie jeebies to think about.
