Pregame Notes: Let the experiment ever be in your favor!

Let the experiment ever be in your favor…

Yeah, I quoted “The Hunger Games”, sort of. I went there. But in the way the Yankees are having their own kind of “Hunger Games” or as I like to call it “The Center Field Games”. The Center Field Games, a series of experiments in order to test the flexibility and defense of two of the Yankees players: Brett Gardner and Curtis Granderson. The winner gets to be the center fielder  on Opening Day and possibly for the 2013 season. The other player gets to play the coveted left field position, further enhancing their value in the outfield.

The issue? Both Gardner and Granderson both see themselves as center fielders. Gardner came up in the minor leagues as a center fielder while Granderson played almost his entire career as a center fielder. Granderson doesn’t have as much experience as a left fielder as Gardner. Gardner admits that left field is the harder position to play although he makes it look incredibly easy on television.

So welcome one and all to the first (and hopefully last) “Center Field Games.” And may the odds ever be in their favor.
