Why would Granderson and Texeira not be able to "turn it around"? A-Rod, I can understand.

What exactly do you mean by putting pressure on the other team? I would have a hard time with any definition that says the offense that was second in runs and OBP in the major league isn't putting pressure on the other team.

Now that's not fair, Granderson struck out in 1/3 of his at-bats so he couldn't have hit into the shift that much...
