New York Mets Will Pay Some Of Bartolo Colon’s Contract In Trade

The New York Mets made two big acquisitions this summer, Curtis Granderson and Bartolo Colon. While Granderson will be with the Mets for awhile, it appears Colon’s days in a Mets uniform are numbered. Bartolo Colon has been solid for the team this season, pitching himself to a 9-8 record with a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 100 Ks in 134 IP. So why would the Mets be willing to trade...

Stomach ailment forces Mets’ Granderson to the bench

Curtis Granderson wasn’t in much condition to play on Tuesday. After coming down with a stomach ailment the previous night, the Mets outfielder told manager Terry Collins he belonged on the bench against the Mariners. It left Collins to go with a starting outfield of Eric Young Jr., Juan Lagares and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. “[Granderson] has been sick since midnight,” Collins said...

Some Mets’ silver linings for 2014

After the first series since the All-Star Break, the Mets are not quite where we might have hoped they’d be at some of the more optimistic moments of the season. Eight games back of the second NL wild card spot, the once-glimmery playoff hopes are looking less…shiny these days. Coming into their most recent three-game series, the Mets odds to beat the Seattle Mariners are decent...

New York Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson has had a heck of a career playing for the Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, and now New York Mets.

After A Slow Start, Granderson Has Quieted His Critics

I think it is safe to say that Curtis Granderson has been one of the most offensively productive players in the league since April 29th. Mets fans remember the slow start that Granderson got off too, which drew comparisons to Jason Bay from the harshly critical Mets Twitter community. In a recent article on, Adam Rubin noted that Granderson has the seventh-best...

Quietly, Curtis Granderson Is Matching His Career Numbers

Sometimes, we Met fans react too quickly. Curtis Granderson was the big-ticket signing of Sandy Alderson’ 2014 off-season – the puzzling contract of Chris Young notwithstanding. Given the Wilpons’ recent track record and Alderson’s stated preference to avoid giving out contracts longer than three years, Granderson’s four-year, $60 million contract came as more than...

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...
