CURTIS GRANDERSON RUMORS

Can Curtis Granderson be that reliable bat?

Things couldn’t be more different from Curtis Granderson‘s first Spring Training with the Mets to his performance this year. Over 51 at-bats last spring Granderson hit .157/.241/.353, while this spring he’s put up a ridiculous .452/.547/.762 with 12 RBI over his first 42 ABs. Some may preach the gospel of Kevin Long, while others will rightly chastise the infidel of small...

Long Says Mets Will Need Serious Contributions From Wright, Granderson, Murphy To Win

New Mets hitting coach Kevin Long gave Dan Martin of the New York Post a player by player progress report as the team enjoyed a day off on Wednesday. “I’ve seen good things from a lot of these guys,” the hitting coach said. “Kirk Nieuwenhuis has been good. Ruben Tejada has been better. And Wilmer Flores, he just doesn’t miss. If you throw a strike, he’s going to do damage...

Kevin Long, Curtis Granderson going ‘back to the blueprint’

New York Mets hitting coach Kevin Long this morning told the media that he and Curtis Granderson will go, “back to the blueprint,” that made the outfielder a dynamic power threat with the New York Yankees. Curtis Granderson spent four years with the Yankees, hitting .245/.335/.495, averaging 29 home runs per season. However, after hitting 41 home runs and slugging .552 in 2011...

Granderson Sets A Positive Tone, Believes Mets Can Take Back New York

I read yesterday that the Mets full squad was already in camp on Monday, two days before the mandatory reporting date. I don’t know what that means in the grand scheme of things, but I think it says a lot about the makeup of the team and their commitment. I really like the mix of players that Sandy has put together. It’s a young team with some key veterans that have a lot to...

Granderson Understands That He Needs To Deliver

When the Mets signed  Curtis Granderson to a four-year, $60 million dollar contract last off-season, he was expected to be the dangerous lefthanded cleanup hitter that the team desperately needed. However, he underperformed in his first year with the Mets, hitting just .227 with 20 home runs and a .714 OPS. He eventually lost the cleanup hitter spot and then shuffled around the...

New York Mets: Michael Cuddyer on the radar

News has come out today that the New York Mets may already be on their way to filling one of the holes in their lineup: corner outfielder. It’s been reported by sources close to the team including both WFAN radio and SNY that the Mets will pursue Michael Cuddyer. Admittedly, there’s another Rockies outfielder that many hoped the Mets would show interest in, but Cuddyer could...

Is Curtis Granderson in decline?

The Mets made a four year, $60 million commitment to Curtis Granderson last winter. It was a signing that was agreed by most to be the right thing to do as the Mets were in desperate need for outfield help. With nine games left in the season, Granderson has posted the worst OPS of his major league career (outside of a nine game stretch in his first exposure to major league baseball...

The interesting case of Curtis Granderson

“Real New Yorkers are Mets fans,” are the most remembered words by Mets new outfielder Curtis Granderson during his press conference this past offseason.  Granderson entered 2014 with high expectations, and has seemed to fail each and every one of them.  Granderson has a batting average well below .200 after playing in 19 of the Mets first 20 games.  Of course, there is still...

New York Mets: 3 up and 3 down

New York Mets: 3 up and 3 downThe New York Mets finished 74-88 in 2013, good enough for 3rd place in a top-heavy NL East. Rookies Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler burst onto the scene to provide signs of life for a franchise that has otherwise been stuck in the mud. In fact, the Mets haven’t had a winning record since 2008. Having worked previously in Oakland and San Diego, GM Sandy...
