Despite missing 101 games in 2013 because he kept breaking bones, Granderson, who turns 33 in March, can market himself as the best power-hitting, left-handed hitting outfielder in the 2013 free agent class.

To those who say Granderson is a Yankee Stadium creation, Brown quickly counters that nearly 40 percent (37) of those 84 long balls were hit on the road.
“He’s probably the best guy in all of baseball, as a human being,” Brown said. “Plus, he can run.”
