Curtis Granderson may not stay a New York Yankee for much longer. It has been speculated that he will turn down the Yanks’ qualifying offer of $14.1 million, which has to be accepted (or denied) by next Monday.
In an interview with ESPN,
“Well, it’s definitely something you’ve got to think about and I appreciate the Yankees extending that offer to me,” Granderson said. “You definitely got to continue to weigh all your options to see what’s the best fit for you. Is it doing something like you said, the qualifying offer and going back out there again, or seeing what else is out there? You know, there are 29 other ballclubs out there and we’re now at a point where every team has the chance to be a contender here in the near future. The days of ‘I don’t want to play for those teams’ are kind of over with now, which is a great thing for baseball and fans in general. Because everybody’s got an opportunity to step up, surprise you, get things going, their minor league systems are great, and have a chance to win.”
It will be interesting to see what the outfielder will do, as he has under a week to make his decision of whether or not to stay with the Yankees. But it seems as though things are not looking good for the Bronx Bombers.
I’ve enjoyed my time with New York and we’ve got to see what’s going to happen there first but I’m open for everything. Let’s just see how it is all going to end up happening and see what happens with the Yankees first.
What do you think the Grandy-man will do? Leave a comment below.
