Should Mets Sell High on Granderson and Re-Sign Cespedes

Right now, there are two people who are realistically standing in the way of Yoenis Cespedes returning to the Mets. No, it’s not Fred and Jeff Wilpon. It’s Michael Conforto and Curtis Granderson. Like it or not, Sandy Alderson was right when he said Cespedes isn’t a center fielder. While Cespedes grades out as an elite left fielder, he’s just not good in center. Last...

Curtis Granderson’s 2015 season and some age-based comps

Curtis Granderson’s first year with the Mets in 2014 didn’t exactly go as planned and most people considered him to be a bust. Those people failed to take into account that after a dreadful April, Granderson was actually pretty solid in 2014, putting up a .760 OPS over the season’s final five months (551 PA) and this despite a .278 BABIP. Still, given his age, it was hard...

Mets Have No Plans to Move Curtis Granderson from Leadoff Spot

The New York Mets have no plans to move Curtis Granderson out of the leadoff spot where he performed so well during the 2015 season. While the search is on to find a center fielder to platoon with Juan Lagares, that has less to do with making a change at the top of the order and more about lengthening the lineup. “The more we can lengthen our lineup out, the more we can become...

Expect Another Big Year From Curtis Granderson, Who Will Be Ready For Spring Training

I think we can all agree that Curtis Granderson was without question the most valuable player of the Mets this season. I have to be honest, going into this season my expectations for Granderson were pretty bleak. Coming off a 2014 season that saw him post career-lows in batting average (.227), slugging (.388) and WAR (1.2), I feared we had another Bay situation on our hands. But...

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.
