Yankees activate Curtis Granderson, and down Melky Mesa


As expected, the Yankees have activated Curtis Granderson off the 60-day DL in time for tonight’s game. He is in the lineup, batting fifth and playing left field. Melky Mesa was sent to Triple-A Scranton to clear a spot on the 25-man roster, and Thomas Neal was designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

    Well, closest thing to a major league lineup we will have.

    Welcome back, King Curtis.

    Time to prove the non-believers wrong.

    • Pat D

      One of the more underrated grapplers in a largely forgotten era of sports entertainment.

  • Dalek Jeter

    We have like…6 major leaguers in the line up tonight, huh?

    • vicki

      and cc! it’s crazy but we’re less exposed without the DH.

  • Al

    A-ROD home run in Trenton
    Up your ass Bud

    • Betty Lizard

      I swear to God Satan, I will sell my soul to have Alex back in the lineup for the rest of the season.

      • Carlos Danger

        I second this.

      After his last AB he gave his gloves and bat to a kid in the stands.

      He’s such an asshole…

      • vicki

        well done, you.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        I’d check to see what’s in those gloves.

  • Now Batting

    I hope he’s wearing body armor.

    Does this mean I no longer have to see Neal’s asinine tweets in the sidebar here anymore?

    • forensic

      Do you mean the sidebar on Lohud? There are no tweets in the sidebar here (at least not that show up for me).

      But other than that, I know what you mean. Like that one he puts up EVERY single morning. That’s part of why I’m not on twitter.

    Here’s hoping for Neal to revive his stock.
