I know you're kidding, but the Granderson thing is a real bug with Mets fans. They are trotting him out there almost every day at the expense of former 1st round pick Michael Conforto (son of the former PSU player of the same name). Conforto came out gangbusters in 2015 but had a serious sophomore slump last year. This year he's off to a great start but they are struggling to find at bats for him. You always hear about how pro sports is a true meritocracy but it is been my observation that is not true. Older players get protected at the expense of younger, better players. Granderson is well past his prime. Trotting him out there to play center field most nights is ridiculous. He can't run. He can't throw. And, so far, he can't hit. He's a notoriously slow starter.
He seems like a great guy and has been a good Met, but, seriously, it's time to give youth a chance. Conforto is not really a center fielder but he's as much of one as 36 year old Granderson is, but with a better arm and a much better bat.
Btw, speaking of Granderson's arm, I'm reminded of some interesting trivia I heard this weekend. Don Baylor is apparently the only outfielder in major league history who played at least 500 innings in the outfield and never had an outfield assist. Even Granderson and his noodle arm have had an outfield assist. Apparently the saying on Baylor was he was a 3 tool player: he could hit, he could field and he could lob. I thought that was kind of funny. But, mostly, I'm amazed he's the only long playing outfielder to not have an assist in the history of the game.
