Mets Morning News: Still crowded in the corners

Mets Morning News: Still crowded in the corners

Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Sandy Alderson told reporters he’s content with carrying Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce on the roster heading into spring training. The Daily News’ John Harper argues why that’s not such a good idea. The Mets will play their final spring training game in 2017 against Army at West Point on March 31. The Mets are utilizing a “file-and-trial” policy in negotiating contracts for arbitration-eligible players. This means the franchise and players will only negotiate until Friday’s 1 p.m. deadline....

Mets trade rumors: Jay Bruce likely to be traded soon

Mets trade rumors: Jay Bruce likely to be traded soon

With a month to go before spring training, the Mets are still looking to trade the left-handed slugger. Although the Mets have been quiet this offseason since the team re-signed Yoenis Cespedes, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that Jay Bruce is likely to be traded soon. For the past few months, there have been a number of trade talks surrounding Bruce and Curtis Granderson, though the Mets have always preferred a deal that ships Bruce out of New York. The left-handed-hitting right fielder finished last season with a .250/.309/.506 line and 33 home runs, but he hit just .219/.294/.391 with...

Building the ultimate Mets outfielder, from their current outfielders

It is often said that nobody is perfect, and that certainly rings true with baseball players. It seems that even the best players have weaknesses. Whether it be Noah Syndergaard‘s molasses-like delivery to the plate or Curtis Granderson‘s sometimes ineffective…Read more →

Mets talking Andrew McCutchen, but these hurdles exist

Mets talking Andrew McCutchen, but these hurdles exist

’Tis the season for dreaming big gifts, and the Mets are dreaming of center fielder Andrew McCutchen. Go ahead and dream. Why not? The Mets have a desperate need for a center fielder, unless you think 36-year-old Curtis Granderson can do the job, but landing the Pirates’ five-time All-Star is another thing — stranger things...

Mets Trade Rumors: Mets engaged in center field trade discussions

Mets Trade Rumors: Mets engaged in center field trade discussions

The Mets know they have a hole to fill in center field and Ken Rosenthal reports that they’ve been talking to teams about trades. The Mets appear to have a spot to fill in center field. On Friday, we wrote about this topic and came to the conclusion that while Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares could probably patchwork it for a season and do a somewhat acceptable job, there are ways to measurably improve the position going forward. For a team that’s competing for a championship and most importantly, competing for a division that was topped by a formidable 95-win Nationals team this past...
