    Would someone like to explain to me why in the name of god Granderson keeps leading off? It's insane.

      It's just a matter of time before they put him in the bullpen for his uncanny ability to kill rallies.

        Yep. Plus what the heck is Joba coming in after Robertson? I'm dumbfounded.

        • John

          Sorry, he came in after Rapada. That still should have been DRob in that situation though.

          I think my anger out how this game went blurred my vision.

      Yeah because he's good

        I think he's good but not ideal in the leadoff spot. I agree with a lot of other people who would like to see Swisher moved up to the 2 hole, push Jeter back to leadoff, then drop Granderson to maybe 5 where his power number would be more suitable. Granderson surprisingly has one of the better OBP's on the team, but it seems like Swisher has always done well in the 2 hole, almost like he takes pride in it. I don't have any statistics to back that up whatsoever, it's just that as a fan I have a better feeling when he's there. But like I said I'm not blowing anyone's mind with anything that hasn't already been said/argued before.

    I feel ya. A lot of things usually contribute to losses but it's hard not to focus on the things that drive you nuts on a consistent basis.
