Seeing him turn into this type of player, much of the animosity I had for him is now gone. Now I only hate him because he's a goddamn Yankee.
Of course, batting left handed in Yankees Stadium, with that short porch in right field, has really helped Granderson's HR totals since he was traded to the Yankees.
