He was an easy out. So were Cano, Swisher, Chavez, and A-Rod. Every year there's going to be someone who slumps in the playoffs. Prior to this season Granderson was a .267 hitter with a .898 OBP in the playoffs.

There's nothing inherent about Granderson that precludes him from succeeding in the playoffs.
ARod isn't going anywhere. Texeira, while he walks at a good clip, is a home-run hitter primarily at this point and it doesn't look like it is going to change. Cano is a good hitter when he wants to be.

Granderson is more in the mold of Texeira than Cano. IMO you can't succeed with (3) hitters (Texeira, Arod, Granderson) who are swing for the fences type of hitters in the middle of your line-up. One should go. Tex and ARod are practically immovable.
