While the New York Mets are off doing their own thing, another New York based baseball team is still trying to get their pieces together.
If you haven’t heard about this team, they happen to be the New York Yankees. They’re kind of a big deal in sports history. Anyways, right now the Mets are rebuilding their outfield. They’ve already signed Chris Young (click here) and are currently in the mix for (click here) Nelson Cruz.
Now why would New York Yankees fans care about this? Well because the Yankees could also be on board when it comes to Nelson Cruz. I mean, he’s a powerful right handed hitter and a decent outfielder, so why wouldn’t they? They have the cash to bring him in and bring back Curtis Granderson.
According to the New York Post, the Yankees are in fact still interested in bringing back the man who missed 100 games. You can’t ignore what he’s able to do when he’s healthy, so next season he’s due for a break out year. Atleast that’s what he’s hoping for.
If Granderson happens to come back, he’ll more than likely be placed in right field. I know what you’re thinking, ‘but Ichiro Suzuki is in right field David!’. That means Suzuki will either become a part time player or will become trade bait. The guy is getting up there in age, so even though he’s still the infamous Ichiro Suzuki, eventually the two will part ways.
That part will more than likely happen in 2014.
