Evil Empire Loses Granderson For Ten Weeks

After losing over 100 HRs to free agency in the off-season, the Yankees have also lost some part of a potential for 40+ HRs with Curtis Granderson's broken forearm. The center fielder will miss at least 10 weeks before he is major league ready. The Evil Ones are scrambling to find a replacement for Granderson—which is all the more complicated since they had been planning to move him to left field, with Brett Gardner moving to center. That's obviously on hold as well. It's never good for anyone in MLB to get hurt like this (on a pitch in his first Spring at-bat) and it's particularly troubling when it's one of the best people in all of baseball. There are only three Evil Ones we have any respect for as ballplayers and people—Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Granderson.
