Vice Versa starring Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage back in 1988 when I was a teenager. I just thought about it today and it was comforting. It was a silly movie about a father and son who switch places and then understand each others roles in life. That's Brett Gardner and Curtis Granderson... kind of.
Pete Caldera's piece titled Yankees Brett Gardner and Curtis Granderson will flip positions for camp, he writes:
"Yankees brass finally has determined that a switch is in order, with Gardner the better choice in center. That means sliding Granderson over to left field – a position he hasn’t started a major league game at since 2005.
But the change won’t become official until manager Joe Girardi sees how the new alignment plays out in exhibition games.
'I think it has a chance to help us a little bit, but I’m not really sure,' Girardi said Thursday. 'I’m not saying today that this is what it’s going to be opening day.' Granderson bears the greatest impact of this decision, and his preference is plain.
'I’d love to play center, that’s where I’ve been playing,' Granderson said. 'At the same time, I want to play in general. So, no matter where it happens to be, that’s where I want to be at.'" Caldera's full piece is HERE.
We'll let you know what else happens with all of this. Keep checking back here at BYB.
