02:47 PM ET 12.04 | Now that the New York Yankees and Jacoby Ellsbury were able to agree on a seven-year contract, it looks like Granderson is officially out of the Bronx. As one New York team appears to be moving on, the other looks like a serious contender to land the speedy lefty. According to reports, talks between the New York Mets and free agent outfielder Curtis Granderson have "intensified" on Tuesday. Granderson, who turns 33 in March, was limited to just 61 games last season after having a couple stints on the disabled list. He was hit by a pitch that fractured his right forearm then later on had the knuckle of his left pinky finger broken after being hit by Cesar Ramos' pitch.

Could make sense. Mets have the money coming of the books - this is likely to be a 3 or 4 year deal and Mets would be paying for his 33, 34, 35 and potentially 36 years. Having said that i would not be surprised to see the Mets go for more mid tier free agents (Michael Morse and or Corey Hart)

The Mets would be a perfect fit for Granderson.
