Granderson perplexed by scheduling difficulties
Yankees player representative Curtis Granderson just released the following statement:
“Given the advance notice and the fact that other teams have adjusted their schedules ahead of time, we are perplexed at the current options we are being presented with in regards to making up any games postponed due to Hurricane Irene.
“The proposition to take away our only full off day in the final month of the season is not an option, even though the Orioles’ front office and the Commissioner’s office think this is an adequate solution. It’s a shame that the decision has now come down to possibly having to play four games in two days or having to come back to Baltimore for another makeup game.”
