Mets Aim To Continue Streak Behind DeGrom

It is no secret I am not a fan of the New York Mets’ batting order, but as a baseball traditionalist I know this much, you don’t screw around with a hot streak and the Mets are going after their seventh straight win tonight against Miami. That means Curtis Granderson leading off, Travis d’Arnaud batting second and Juan Lagares seventh. The Mets have to feel good about number...

Granderson Trades Power for Patience

It was the eighth inning of a tie game, Juan Jaime was on the mound for Atlanta, and Curtis Granderson drew a lead-off walk. He would then steal second, reach third on a bunt, before scoring the eventual winning run on a sacrifice fly hit by Daniel Murphy. Without recording a hit, Granderson had done what a lead-off hitter is supposed to do: he got on base, used his legs to advance...

Curtis Granderson: Lack of black players in MLB is a ‘big problem’

Curtis Granderson remains concerned about the lack of black players in professional baseball. The New York Mets outfielder spoke with “HuffPost Live” on Jackie Robinson Day and said the lack of black players in MLB is “definitely a big problem.” “We consider baseball the American pastime,” said Granderson. “And if it’s going to be the...Read More

Curtis Granderson batting leadoff is unorthodox, but functional

If it is the objective of the leadoff batter to get on base and nothing else, Curtis Granderson is doing his job in spades. His OBP is .348, while his AVG and SLG are both .063. Hideous? Yes. Effective? Yes. While this trend certainly cannot continue, it is being driven by a more patience approach, something everyone from Kevin Long and up in the Mets organization has probably preached...

Granderson Leaves Game After Being Hit On Right Knee

Curtis Granderson left Thursday’s game after being hit on the right leg, near the knee, by a fastball from Cardinals starter Lance Lynn. Granderson went to first base, finished the inning, but left the game after the inning was over. Reporters say he smiled and gave a thumbs up to fans while leaving the field. Doesn’t sound serious and they likely pulled him to give it and him a rest.

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...

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...

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...

Granderson is Veering Toward the Precipice

Precipice: prec·i·pice noun : A point where danger, trouble, or difficulty begins We’re closing in on the end of the first month of the season and right fielder Curtis Granderson is batting .121 with just eight hits and a .451 OPS in 76 plate appearances. It’s that time of the year when statisticians drum up things like “Granderson will need to bat .375 the rest of this season...
