There have been, and will continue to be, plenty of articles written on Curtis Granderson‘s injury and, consequently, who should replace him. YGY’s own Jimmy Kraft looked at some internal options earlier today, and there are surely external options to consider as well.
Whether internal or external, the spot needs to be filled. So who is going to fill it?
I’ve heard fans, reporters, and analysts suggest names like Alfonso Soriano, Eduardo Nunez, Matt Diaz, Bobby Abreu, and much more. None of these options are ideal, and they all have their pros and cons. Here are some ideas about how to fix the situation from Yankees fans on Twitter:
@newyorkyankee18What Yankees should do now is to use Nunez in left field. Diaz and Rivera are through. Nix or Adams would be utility IFs.

We all have our own opinion on the matter – what’s yours? Should the Yankees sign a free agent like Johnny Damon or Bobby Abreu? Should they go with a prospect like Melky Mesa or Zoilo Almonte? Should they trade for someone like Alfonso Soriano? Leave your thoughts below or send us a tweet @YanksGoYardFS!
