I do not normally make bold predictions. It is usually best to leave that up to the Nostradamus’s of the world.
Yet every now and then I get the mosquito itch to pick up the old magic eight ball and shake it. (Hey, please do not judge, for I am only human. After all, the magic eight ball is one addicting fortune-telling contraption)
Recently, I begged the question, while shaking the ball like a fresh container of orange juice: Could New York Yankees center field extraordinaire Curtis Granderson sneak up into the AL MVP race this season?
Suddenly, the bluish ink and bubbles cleared.
As I see it, yes the ball replied.
To this response, I could only shake my head.
“How?” I asked, only to realize this ball was not equipped to answer this question. “How in the world could a ballplayer currently hitting .249 possibly climb the ladder in the AL MVP race?”
Alas, I brainstormed, and developed a slideshow that highlights four ways Granderson can achieve this feat.
