CURTIS GRANDERSON RUMORS

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...

New Hitting Coach Long Can Help This Suggested Outfield

Let’s operate under the assumption, which isn’t hard to do, the New York Mets won’t acquire the long-ball hitting left fielder they covet. Given that, the Mets’ outfield – from left to right – should be Curtis Granderson, Juan Lagares and Matt den Dekker. Lagares is a finalist for the NL Gold Glove in center field, along with Billy Hamilton and Denard Span. The award...

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...

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...

Mets Road Splits Go To The Heart Of The Issue

The New York Mets have seemingly struggled offensively over the last several years, prompting fans to call for better hitters, and more offense. I know I certainly have. The Mets front office has sometimes responded by signing free agent sluggers like Jason Bay and current Met Curtis Granderson. Two players that both had previously produced near MVP seasons before signing with the...

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. Long was relieved of his duties with the Yankees on Friday after ten years of service. Long would be an intersting fit for the Mets solely because of his existing relationship with Curtis Granderson. Long helped Granderson develop into the...

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. 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...
