    Granderson placed on revocable waivers.

    According to Jayson Stark.
    Omar Minaya in 9 Expos/Mets Drafts - 84.6 WAR (Avg 9.4 per class)
    Sandy Alderson in 4 Padres Drafts - 87.1 WAR (Avg 21.8 per class)

    -

    Terry Collins has destroyed 3 clubhouses on 2 different continents and is now working on #4. Quite possibly the worst manager in Major League History.

    Put this idiot into a cannon and fire him into the East River.

    yep

    im sure david wright, matt harvey, jacob degrom etc... will all get placed

    its a procedural move designed to help let certain players pass through unoticed cuz the list is too long (sad but true)

    No one is going to claim him. If they did we would have to let him walk maybe even encourage him to run.

    If someone with money to spend claimed Granderson, the Mets could just dump his salary lol.

    it would be an interesting conversation for sure

    Granderson has done what the Mets should have reasonably expected from him. And they have nobody to replace what he provides.

    Pretty much. Sometimes as a smoke screen, but sometimes to gauge interest in a player. If someone claimed Granderson and offered three top ten prospects...bye bye Curtis. You never know.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Granderson placed on revocable waivers.

    If the Mets traded Granderson, (which likely won't happen) it'll set a poor example for the club. It's kind of like "hey, we signed you, now we're gonna trade you. Sorry but goodbye."

    That's also why I'm a little hesitant about trading Colon so immediately, other free agents would probably take note of that.
