    Jay Bruce - Curtis Granderson Trade Rumors

    The New York Mets have resigned Yoenis Cespedes to a 4 year deal.

    As such they now have a lot of Outfielders:
    Cespedes, Granderson, Conforto, Lagares, Nimmo, and Bruce.

    The Blue Jays have been talking about acquiring him the most.

    Does your team need a power hitting corner outfielder?
    Would you be interested in Jay Bruce on your team given his 1 year, 13 M dollar contract?

    Jay Bruce is now available.

    The Mets needs by the way are Bullpen help, Catcher, and yes an Outfielder, if they can bring in a right handed hitting Outfielder.

    Hate to piss on your cornflakes, but I wouldn't expect much of a return for Bruce. Maybe a decent role player or middle of the pen quality RP.

    The bloom is off the rose when it comes to Bruce.

    Don't know if the bloom was ever there to be honest. Good thing is all the Mets need in return is a prospect or two or a RP. They have enough major league OF/IF depth now.

    Wouldn't have minded Bruce for Saunders but now I'd rather have neither.

    Those who say Yuck are letting personal bias get in the way.

    Jay Bruce is a good player and had a great year for the Reds/Mets.

    Chris Carter just got non-tendered after hitting 41 HR. The league is evolving; one dimensional players hold very little value. If a guy can hit 250 but provide excellent defense and take extra bases on the paths, teams will look past below average power and prefer them to guys who hit 30 bombs and nothing else.

    And when they already make 15 mil, they're not going to be highly sought after.

    The one thing I will say about Bruce is its difficult to get a gauge on him as a fielder. He's had some decent seasons in terms of DRS. How much of that came from playing with Billy Hamilton who tracks down a lot of balls that split the gaps I dont know but the numbers don't really hate Bruce in RF until last season.

    Bruce certainly did not have a great year.

    AVG, HR, RBI tells you little about a player. We can't ignore the other two facets of the game we can measure.

    He was pretty terrible offensively as a Met- .219/.294/.391, .290 wOBA/81 wRC+. His base running is subpar and his defense is wonky. He's also coming off two very meager seasons in 2014 and 2015. That being said...I'd be interested in him if I didn't have to give up a solid piece.

    Yeah, I'm not glorifying the guy. He's just a solid player. Someone will be lucky to get him.

    We don't need him because we have Cespedes. But some team can definitely use him.

    San Francisco would be a nice fit.

    The Giants and Mets match up nicely on a Jay Bruce trade.

    Will Smith, Hunter Strickland, George Kontos. We need a bullpen arm.

    Put Bruce in Left over Gorkys Hernandez and that's a big time upgrade.
