Pic of the Week

Curtis Granderson and umpire Mike Muchlinski
are in agreement on the call on his double Tuesday.

Curtis Granderson, known in these parts as the greatest of the Mankao Mashers, is having a decent bounceback season with the Toronto Blue Jays.

He's become a platoon player at age 37 -- just 20 plate appearances against lefties coming into Friday's play -- and having his at-bats focused on right-handing pitching has resulted in a sharply improved on-base percentage.

This is the Grandy Man's 15th major league season and his fifth team. I was, frankly, a bit surprised he got an offer during the winter. He's lived up to it, probably in part because he's not getting overexposed.
