Harvey-mania is running wild in Port Saint Lucie

Harvey-mania is running wild. After ESPN yesterday announced an E:60 special will air on April 4, a media blitz followed the New York Mets ace to his first bullpen session of the spring. Following brief warm-ups, Harvey threw an array of pitches -including his slider- to what he dubbed the team’s “core four” of David Wright, Michael Cuddyer, Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy...

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...

The Grandy Man Can: Curtis Granderson is the Key to Mets’ Success

As Spring Training begins and Mets players arrive in Port St. Lucie, all eyes are on starting pitcher Matt Harvey. While Harvey’s combination of talent and charisma is undeniably intriguing, he is not the only key to the team’s success. If New York hopes to challenge the Nationals and bid for a playoff spot, outfielder Curtis Granderson will need to live up to the expectations...

Where should Curtis Granderson hit in the lineup?

With expectations running high, the Mets are going to need everyone in the lineup to be efficient. This means that the offense needs to produce runs, get on base and hit for power. Many Mets fans are counting on David Wright to rebound, Michael Cuddyer to provide more protection for Lucas Duda, and the reuniting of Curtis Granderson and Kevin Long to work wonders. Last season...

Granderson Was Getting A Raw Deal

Many people seem to have low expectations and even less optimism when discussing Curtis Granderson.  It seems like his bad season was what should be expected as everyone points to his age and playing in more of a pitcher’s park than Yankee Stadium was.  However, while he only had a pathetic 1.0 WAR last year, that was worse than even Ruben Tejada, let’s breakdown the factors...

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...

Is Curtis Granderson poised to bounce back in 2015?

When the New York Mets inked outfielder Curtis Granderson to a four-year, $60 million contract in late-2013, the team did so with the hopes of adding a dynamic bat to help bolster an anemic offense. Now one year into the four-year agreement, Granderson and the Mets will be looking to improve on a disappointing, but not terrible, first year. Though many would be quick to say Granderson’s...

Curtis Granderson’s success versus lefty pitchers

It’s unusual to see a player make a transformation similar to the one that lefty-swinging Curtis Granderson has undergone in his performance versus lefty pitchers. Early in his career, Granderson experienced limited success versus southpaws. But in the second half of his career he’s handled them quite well. Last year he had a .742 OPS versus LHP compared to a .703 mark versus...

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...
