Granderson still a thorn in our side
Scherzer not being consistent is really what has made this trade less than favorable ever since DD took the call on his vonage phone. If he wasn't such a con flip every time he went out on the mound to give up 8 ER, or strike out 10 it may still be considered a decent trade. AJax has had an up and down time of it too. No question he is a great CFer, and maybe on par, or better than Granderson in the long run there, but he certainly shares Granderson's other favorite past-time of striking out too. Unfortunately, Grandy hits about 35 more HRs every year than AJax. Then we have Phil Coke. A middle relief pitcher. This is our best and most consistent piece in that trade. A middle relief pitcher. Granderson on the other hand hit a grand slam against us last night and has probably robbed us of about 5 runs sine he got traded with amazing plays in the field when we lay NY.
