His plate approach hasn't really changed...and he's still a .260-.270 hitter...the only thing that's changed is his HR/Fly rate is pretty much twice the rate he's established over the past few seasons..
I understand the short porch, but it was there last season too..and I'm not suggesting Grandy isn't a valuable fantasy commodity...but he's going to start hitting home runs less frequently, and DEPENDING on if you can get a really nice sell-high on him, I would.
Granderson is actually a really interesting case in fantasy perception vs. reality. I think people easily mistake him for a great power/speed asset, but SBs aren't a big part of his game, his AVG/OBP are a liability (even during his current streak), and his position in the lineup hurts his RBI potential. Even if this is a career HR year for Granderson, he can be replaced without a lot of drop-off by less hyped guys such as Jones, Choo, Stubbs, Young, Upton, maybe Branton, maybe Maybin, etc. As such, if a great offer comes your way I think you gotta accept it if you think you can get one of those replacements cheap.
