No problem. It should also be said that I am not trying to read too much into it. It is only 4 games into the season for Grenier, just calling it as I see it so far and thought people would be interested.

Well, that's just it isn't it? It's more disappointment than anything that he is playing worse than he played late last year. I was hoping that with being drafted and the motivation of camp that he would come out guns blazing.

A little hustle goes a long way though even despite his other deficiencies in the short term. Then again, "intensity" is not an easily teachable intangible if you don't have it in the first place.

Not all is negative though. Last game he actually threw a hit
