Breaking News: Granderson grants another interview

By

Boy, Curtis Granderson sure gets in a lot of face time with the press, huh? I guess that’s better than the alternative. Anyway, C-Grizzie sat down for a chat with New York Magazine to talk about a whole bunch of stuff. It’s some nice light reading on a gorgeous Saturday morning, so check it out.

  1. Bo says:

    it is probably one of the reasons they targeted him. His personality.

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster) says:

      I think that was far more likely a fortunate by-product.

      The Yankees do have that rare combination of tremendous talent and perceived niceness.

  2. Stones says:

    It’s nice to see a player actually living in the city for once. I know Jeter lives in that fancy Trump building, but most of the rest live in the suburbs.

      not everyone actually likes being in NYC on a regular basis. It’s hard to deny that if you have money it’s a terrific place to visit – great restaurants, great museums, etc – but the atmosphere can be very stifling on a day-to-day basis. It’s a very fashion-conscious, money-spending culture that not everyone enjoys partaking in. Just sayin. I love the yankees, but to be honest, that’s about the only thing i love about NY.

    • andrew says:

      You say that like it should be a requirement to live in the city. much of the suburbs are actually closer to the Stadium, not to mention a more relaxing, low-key place to live.

      • Mike Axisa says:

        There’s a time and place to live in the city. Guys in their 20′s are more likely to do it, but someone with a family isn’t, especially if you have zillions in the bank.

  3. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    I find it funny that anyone can call a day in the mid 30′s as a great day. Now, here in Florida, it’s 75 with a sunny sky. That’s beautiful. We had 10 straight days where the thermometor never got above 50, that sucked.

  4. Richard Deegan says:

    What’s wrong with the burbs? Is Joisey good enough only for Phil and Cora?
    And just picture the face of a substitute letter carrier delivering mail to Mr. Edward Ford, and there’s a big Caddie convertible with Texas plates “MM 7″ in the driveway. Can’t happen in Manhattan.

  5. steve s says:

    Nice to see Sheffield got to him already. He’ll need to get deprogrammed now. Better yet Yanks should make him watch the post-season DVD’s and take it from there.

  6. Drew--Donate if you can says:

    Curtis Granderson, your new center-fielder, seems to possess all the attributes we require of our Yankees: He’s smart, funny, likable, and has exactly the kind of swing that pokes baseballs over a short right-field porch.

    I don’t know about you guys but.. smart, funny and likable are not attributes I require my Yankees to have. The swing part was accurate though.

  7. Accent Shallow says:

    So I won’t be bumped from a table at Lombardi’s for him? I’m ok with that.
