Curtis: You got company
They called Curtis Granderson’s game-saving bringing-it-back theft of Grady Sizemore’s ninth-inning “homer” on Friday night a “once in a lifetime catch.”
Oops. They must’ve meant “once every three days catch.” Torii Hunter’s robbery of Miguel Oliva today was carbon-copy. The only thing that made it seem less athletic was Torii getting to the wall earlier and being in position for his leap.
Otherwise, same deal: Ninth inning, one-run game, one broken heart.
