Mets’ Outfield Alignment Set

In somewhat of a surprise, manager Terry Collins announced today Michael Cuddyer would play left field and Curtis Granderson would be in right. The decision is somewhat of a surprise because the presumption was Cuddyer – with 854 career games in right and just three in left – would play the position where he was most comfortable. However, this makes sense in the respect right...

When the New York Mets first acquired Michael Cuddyer, it was widely believed that he would play right field, moving Curtis Granderson over to left field. Now reports are surfacing that Terry Collins may have other ideas. While he said that Cuddyer and Granderson with each play both corner outfield positions in the spring, he is currently leaning towards keeping Granderson in right...

Mets360 2015 projections: Michael Cuddyer

The outfield has been a sore spot for the Mets for years. Following the 2013 season they addressed it by signing free agent outfielder Curtis Granderson to a four-year deal. Early returns have been less than overwhelming. This offseason, they inked free agent Michael Cuddyer to a two-year deal. Juan Lagares will more than earn his keep by covering extra ground from the two...

New York Mets: Preseason Edition

The New York Mets have had six consecutive losing seasons, and the last time they were in the playoffs they lost in the NLCS to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2006. Optimism that the 2015 season will change this streak is high, and the Mets are well equipped to make a playoff spot. One huge advantage for the Mets is the return of right-handed pitcher Matt Harvey, who missed all of the...

Can Michael Cuddyer really help the Mets?

When you run a baseball team in the biggest market in the world and your budget in 2015 is 19th in the sport, it’s a little insulting to the fanbase to shell out nearly 1/10th of that budget to a player who will be turning 36 before the start of the season, and who played just 49 games the year before. That’s the kind of “big fix” that doesn’t go over too well. But that...

Cuddyer Downplays Injury History, Says Mets Will Challenge For NL East Supremacy

Michael Cuddyer told Mike Puma of the NY Post that he doesn’t buy the notion he’s a “disabled list stint waiting to happen” for the Mets. The Mets’ biggest splash this offseason was limited to 49 games last season with the Rockies, but told Puma the injuries were “freakish in nature.” “A broken shoulder was a freak injury … which I don’t see that happening here...
