I kid, I kid, but we have a great review on Curtis and you're gonna love to hear this.'s Andrew Kappes (HERE) has a piece on Curtis Granderson and his huge step back to the Bronx!

Feel good about Curtis Granderson right now.  Last night, Granderson "homered in the eighth inning of his second rehab game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Granderson went 1-for-5, but fans at PNC Field will remember his final swing of the night.

Granderson started the game in left field and batted second for the RailRiders.

'I was able to get a good swing on it and finally hit the ball out of the infield for the first time,' Granderson said of his homer, which broke a tied game and lifted the RailRiders to a 5-3 win. 'I knew it was hit decent, but I didn't think it was going out.'

He began his second rehab game with a hard grounder to second, but it resulted in a double play. He followed that up with a routine grounder to second in his second at-bat. He struck out in the fourth, and while Granderson hit a ball hard up the middle in the sixth, pitcher Luis Ayala knocked it down and threw him out at first."

The big question is soon coming... what happens when Curtis Granderson comes back? Are they just going to rotate, Vernon Wells, Ichiro Suzuki and Brett Gardner.  Are we going to use Vernon Wells as a right handed DH? Do we sit Ichiro Suzuki?

Questions are coming as our wounded get healthy, but I can tell you this... I'm psyched for Curtis!
