CURTIS GRANDERSON RUMORS

New Citi Field Wall Construction Moving Swiftly

That is a current photo of the progress at Citi Field that was posted only hours ago by The 7 Line on Instagram. It appears that parts of that right field corner is coming in as much as 25 feet from what some other observers are saying. Sandy Alderson acknowledged that these new changes will help Curtis Granderson, and that according to team data, he would have hit seven more home...

New York Mets Hire Kevin Long As New Hitting Coach

Unlike most people who get fired in the big Apple, Kevin Long has found work quickly and does not have to leave the state of New York as the Mets announced on Thursday that they have hired the former Yankees hitting coach, a two weeks after he was let go. Long, 47, held the position of New York Yankees hitting coach since 2007 and had seen considerable success during his tenure...

Kevin Long, Front Office Might Not See Eye-To-Eye

Yesterday the Mets announced the hiring of Kevin Long as the new batting coach (or as they call it hitting instructor). This move makes sense for a number of reasons. On top of that list is the work he did with Curtis Granderson while they were both with the Yankees. You could argue that a productive Granderson is the most important thing to the Mets in 2015 and Long should help...

Ehalt: Mets Could Look At Kevin Long For Hitting Coach

According to Matt Ehalt of The Record, Mets sources are indicating that Kevin Long could be looked at to fill the Mets vacancy at hitting coach.

Would Moving the Fences In Help Curtis Granderson?

This morning, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reported that the Mets plan to reconfigure the dimensions of Citi Field. By “reconfigure,” it’s likely that Rubin means that the Mets want to bring in the outfield fences. The idea is, make the distance from home to the right-center field gap shorter and you would thereby increase home run potential. The two hitters that would seem...

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.

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...
