Earlier this evening, the following tweet was sent out from Craig Minervini, who does TV work for the Miami Marlins.
Frankly, I had never heard of Craig before tonight, but after doing some research, there is no reason not to believe his sources aren’t legitimate, even if he isn’t Ken Rosenthal or Jon Heyman.
Either way, the career of Curtis Granderson, and the short but effective career of Rene Rivera are coming to close (if not by tonight, by the end of the year) and it’s no secret both players have a had a lasting impact on the Mets.
I’ve had the honor of watching Granderson’s amazing, personable and infectious style of play, one I wish most ballplayers followed. Granderson is always making everyone’s day by signing autographs, taking selfies, chatting with fans and playing to the best of his ability.
So, we will keep on this story, but if Granderson has played his last game, I’ll always remember his last hurrah, a grand slam to the Mo’s Zone in right field, and I had a prime seat right behind me to see it soar.
