Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored during the Mets' 4-3 win over the Braves on Monday
After what has been a season of disappointment, Granderson has finally woken up recently going 9-for-26 (.346) over his last seven games with three home runs, six RBI and six runs scored. He's still only hitting .234 on the year, so he's either going to have to power up more to make that average tolerable or he's going to have to boost the average and on-base percentage to make the low-power output more understandable.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
