Bill Madden, Daily News:
Only five batters into the second exhibition game of the spring and suddenly all the fear and trepidation of this forthcoming Yankee season was realized: Bronx Bombers to Bronx Bummers.
As Curtis Granderson trotted down to first base in the first inning of Sunday's Steinbrenner Field opener against the Blue Jays, rubbing his right forearm that had just been hit by a J.A. Happ fastball, the Yankee high command, already holding its breath over a breakdown by any of the many over-38 geezers they're counting on to play critical roles for them this year, braced for the worst.
A short while later the brass got it: The forearm was broken, Granderson will be out a minimum of 10 weeks ...
You're now looking at a team that could be hard-pressed to hit 150 homers and, as an ominous point of reference, the last time the Yankees hit under 150 in an uninterrupted full season was during the doldrums years, 1988-91.
