Granderson: Verlander’s MVP ‘couldn’t have gone to a better guy’
Curtis Granderson weighed in on the American League MVP award, won by the Tigers’ Justin Verlander, during an appearance this afternoon at PS 19X in the Bronx.
“It’s great,” he said. “You look at a lot of different reasons why the person should be voted in that, and Verlander did anything and everything to help his team win as many ballgames as possible. Being a former teammate of his, a friend of his, I just have to give congratulations to him – not only for that, but for the Cy Young Award. It couldn’t have gone to a better guy.”
Granderson was at the school to help unveil a renovated playground and take part in a Wiffle ball challenge. He hit seven home runs, raising $700 for the school’s nutrition program, but the American Dairy Association more than doubled the number and donated $1,500 in all.
