08:49 AM ET 11.09 | It is too far early to predict with confidence where Curtis Granderson will play next year, but when it comes to New York, this much is fair to say: He is more likely to be a Met than a Yankee in 2014. The free agent outfielder is set to cut all ties with his most recent team by Monday, the deadline to accept or decline qualifying offers. Granderson is likely, though not yet certain, to forego the chance to return to the Yanks on a one-year, $14.1 million deal. Multiple major league executives predict that Granderson will receive a multi-year contract on the open market. Two people familiar with the Mets' thinking said that the team has expressed preliminary interest in Granderson, but that their level of seriousness will depend on how the market develops.

I guess that's one way to stop people from talking about how his bat disappears in the postseason...

That's a beacon signal for the Mets.

This is a non-issue, the Yankees will pick up a 38 yr old OF and be just fine.

Like: new 2nd, SS, and 3rd, new Catcher, a couple of younger outfielders, at least three MLB pitchers, a Closer, and a 1st base that plays 150 games a year, and can hit.
Not much ready talent in the minors, no trade bait, and owners who want to duck the luxury tax.
This is not a pretty picture in the Bronx.

Grandy is a good player, would probably do well in Citi Field!!!

Uh, as a Sox fan, let me tell you this. Never count the Yankees out.

And, as another Sox fan, I understand your concern, but this Yankee team is in serious trouble if ownership is committed to getting under the luxury tax.

Agreed. But the Yanks did fairly well last season, and a certain team captain should be back this year. They'll make it interesting.

Let's how many games Derek plays, and much ground he can cover with a touchy ankle.
