Road Trip Opinion Piece
Obviously it is a small sample size, but after six games I think Curtis Granderson will be this year's Mark Teixeira. Teixeira was the best move by Cashman from last season. As important as CC and AJ were to the success of 2009, Teixeira's impact on offense and defense made him the best signing of the bunch in my mind. Granderson is hitting, slugging, and making some great plays in center. Today he made the type of catch that, while ruled a hit, hasn't been seen in a center field patrolled by a Yankee in a long time. Both Johnson and Vazquez will prove to be important pieces this year, but I think when all is said and done that Granderson will clearly be the best move Cashman made for 2010 (granted, he's probably already considered the best move from last winter, but who cares, I needed something to write about).
