Granderson, The Straw That Stirs The Drink

Now that Curtis Granderson is back, so are the Tigers. i wrote a few weeks back when the Tigers were struggling, that with all the injuries we have (Zumaya, Rodney, Sheff,) the most missed is Granderson. The Tigers have been on fire since the real (and maybe best in the league) leadoff hitter has returned.

The Tigers go for the sweep today against the Bronx bombers, with Nate Robertson taking the hill. Yesterday Jeremy Bonderman looked like the Bondo we’ve gotten used to seeing, with 7+ great innings of work

Another nice thing to see was Marcus Thames. Once again coming thru with a Homerun. Thames doesn’t get to much playing time, but always seems to come thru. he’s a great player to have off the bench.

 

Bonderman looked like the Bondo from 2006.

 

With Granderson back, the team is jumppin!
