Curtis Granderson’s off-the-field work got honored Friday night before the first of a three game set against the Rangers.
Voted on by players, the Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award is given to a player who has displayed excellence both on and off the field. Granderson joins the likes of John Smoltz, Jim Thorne, Albert Puljos who have also received this honor. Getting recognized by your peers who you work with day in and day out, certainly says something and is quite an honor.
Congratulations to Curtis Granderson!
Friday’s 5-1,and today’s 7-3 wins against the Texas Rangers are the fourth series in a row for the Bombers who are hot out of the gate.
The Yankees pitchi ng by CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett dominated a Rangers line-up that includes Josh Hamilton and Michael Young. The Rangers are without their leadoff stocky bat, second baseman Ian Kinsler, who is out with a right ankle sprain.
On a cold and rainy Friday night, CC struck out nine hitters in six innings continuing his dominance off an almost no-hitter in Tampa.
AJ kept the movement going today pitching threw seven innings and not allowing a run to score, and picking up his second win of the season.
Other Yankee milestones took charge today, as Arod hit his first homer of the season making his lifetime total 584 and moving him into eighth of all-time passing Mark McGuire in the record books.
Catcher Jorge Posada had his 1500th hit in pinstripes in the third inning. A milestone, to say the least.
The start of the 2010 season could not be going better for the defending champions.
