NEW YORK – The Terry Collins press conference has been a highlight of this 2015 postseason, the Mets manager presiding over a realm that so often in the club’s past has been little more than strategically explaining futility.
But even within this new world, Collins visibly brightens when Curtis Granderson comes up. It happens infrequently, and Collins appreciates the chance to sing the virtues of a steady performer often overshadowed by the powerful Yoenis Cespedes or folk hero Wilmer Flores or all those Mets pitchers with their flying fastballs.
“Curtis Granderson, he’s just one of those quiet guys that goes about his job,” Collins said Sunday, prior to Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. “I tell all the young players that come up here: ‘If you handle the game like Curtis Granderson does because you’re talented, you’re going to be successful, because he never has a bad day.’
Sark, I hope you’re wrong about he Mets’ long layoff but I was thinking the same thing. This looks a lot like what happened to the Tigers in 2006 and 2012, as you said in your comment.
We shall see.
