New thread for the new year:

Curtis Granderson, one of my favorite Yankees ever, announced today he is retiring. Would love to get him into the NY front office in some capacity...

Bi-Coastal, for the time being
I was so upset when the Yankees acquired Granderson, what with my liking Granderson and hating the MFY so much. Aside from Rivera, he may have been the first of the more recent wave of Yankees for whom I find it takes a little effort to work up some contempt (Judge, Gleyber, David Robertson, Gregorius, Paxton, McCutcheon, Severino...)

Don't worry, I manage, but I'd rather not have to try.

Back to the topic at hand, Granderson annually donated a ton of bats to New York City public school baseball teams once he hit the Yankees and Mets. Good dude.

I had a perhaps irrational love for Granderson, lol. He was always the coolest guy in the room, and he was on the same team with Ichiro and Jeter.
