Mets' Granderson downplays impact of dimensions at Citi Field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson downplayed the impact the new dimensions at Citi Field will have on his performance in 2015, per ESPN.

"It was a transition because it was a new stadium," Granderson said of his struggles in his first year with the Mets in 2014. "But it wasn't anything different. People come up and said, 'Oh, it must be hard hitting there.' No, you play in all the other ballparks all the time. Your home games, you've only got half of them there. And then you're going to play somewhere else. You don't adjust your game accordingly. If you hit it, it will go. If you don't, it won't. It's the same in any ballpark."

Although, the addition of hitting coach Kevin Long could have a bigger impact on Granderson.

"The biggest thing is he brings a sense of confidence," Granderson said. "One of the things I enjoyed about being with him for four years with the Yankees was he was always your biggest fan. No matter what he ended up talking about in terms of mechanics or approach or different things, once you came off the field, he was the first one saying, 'Hey, you're real close. You're almost there.' As you know in this game, confidence is a big thing."

Mets' Curtis Granderson hoping to bounce back this year
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson is hoping to bounce back this season, according to the New York Daily News.

In his first season with New York, Granderson hit .227/.326/.388, with 20 home runs, in 564 at-bats. Granderson acknowledged that he's one of the more expensive players on the club, and that means he needs to produce better numbers moving forward. "You can’t hide behind that," he said. "It’s up to me to deliver. I understand that. It doesn’t change the pressure I put on myself." 

"I didn’t get the start I would’ve loved to have," Granderson added. "Historically, I haven’t necessarily been a good starter." In order to change that, Granderson worked with hitting coach Kevin Long early in the offseason. Long was credited with turning Granderson into a big-time performer when both men were with the Yankees. "I wanted to see [Long] before we got things going [at spring camp]," Granderson said. "The opportunity presented itself to get some work in and set forth how we want to be." 

Granderson is entering the second season of a four-year, $60 million contract with the Mets.

Curtis Granderson to work with new Mets hitting coach in offseason
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

New Mets hitting coach Kevin Long said Wednesday he expects to spend some time in the offseason working with outfielder Curtis Granderson, who struggled offensively in 2014.

"The main thing I've seen is his hands are kind of moving more than they did when he was with the Yankees," Long said about Granderson, per ESPN. "So we're going to try to just quiet that down a little bit. They're not really getting into a strong position consistently. So we'll work at that. There's a few little, minor other issues that we'll hit. Curtis, he had some streaks this year where he was really swinging the bat well. We'll just try to maintain a little bit more consistency. 

"You know, I think it's tough, too, the first time you come into an organization and you signed a big contract. I think it's a little more difficult than it might seem. In Curtis' case, that probably played into it. I know Brian McCann, as this season progressed over with the Yankees, he got better and better and more comfortable."

Mets hoping Kevin Long can get Curtis Granderson back on track
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It's safe to say outfielder Curtis Granderson didn't exactly meet expecations in his first year with the Mets after signing a four-year, $60 million free-agent contract prior to the 2014 season. The veteran outfielder hit just .227 with a .388 slugging percentage and .714 OPS in 155 games. 

However, Mets manager Terry Collins is optimistic the addition of hitting coach Kevin Long will be beneficial for the veteran outfielder. The duo worked together when they were with the Yankees, Granderson hit 84 home runs over 2011 and 2012 with Long helping with his approach.

"I'm hoping," Mets manager Terry Collins told NJ.com. "I'm certainly hoping. One thing (Long) said is that Yankee Stadium helped Curtis a lot but there are some things that they did that kept him a little bit more consistent. I'm hoping he can carry it over here."
