What is Curtis Granderson's home run call going to be?

Now that the Yanks have a new center fielder in Curtis Granderson, all we have to do is figure out what home run call John Sterling will use for him.

First off, you know some play on words regarding a "Grand" slam is inevitable with Sterling. And some out-there call we haven't expected will also come up. I was listening to Curtis Mayfield's great 70s song "Pusherman" at the gym the other day, and it occurred to me that Sterling will have some line using Mayfield's name with some great defensive play.

So, what other calls will Sterling make? Any thoughts?

Incidentally, check out my Faster Times article from last week on the trade. And the more I read about Granderson, the more I like him. I also hope he continues his blogging for Yahoo Sports Big League Stew site.

In other news, I wrote on the 29th anniversary of John Lennon's death at my personal blog, Swan Squawking. Check it out here.

What do you think John Sterling's home run call for Curtis Granderson will be? Tell us about it!

"Now, Santana deals 2 and 1. IT'S HIT IN THE AIR TO RIGHT. Take balls high...it is far...IT IS GONE! Curtis Granderson has hit a two run home run to put the Yankees up 2-0! IT'S GRANDIOSO!"

Sorry about the mistake on the first one - I need to proofread better - The GRANDIOSO is the Italian in me (although the word is the same in Spanish). And I didn't think you would mind the HR being hit off Johan Santana in a Subway Series game........

John Sterling: "The pitch, it's swung on, and there it goes! Deep to right! That ball is high, it is far, it is gone! A home run for Curtis Granderson! The GRANDdaddy! Hit into the GRANDstand! And the Yankees take a 2-0 lead! Boy, what a shot by Curtis Granderson!"

Can't stand Sterling (he's all about himself as opposed to the game he's supposedly watching) but he'll probably come up with something like, "Take a Curtis Call, Curtis!" and then feel very proud of himself and force people to listen to it for the next 3 years.
