About a year ago, Curtis Granderson and Yankees hitting coach made some adjustments to his swing, basically making his swing more compact, allowing him to unleash a quicker bat with more power. Since then, the Yankees' center fielder has been arguably the best player in the American League, improving all facets of his game.
For nearly the entire 2011 season, talks of Granderson winning the American League MVP have been murmuring. He has not let up his torrid pace since entering September, forcing voters to seriously consider him for the award. There are factors they must take into account that lead to any MVP award, but in Granderson's case, the number of reasons he can or can't win make this a very complicating achievement.
