Curtis Granderson, who the Mets traded to the Dodgers earlier this month, wrote an article in the Players' Tribune thanking Mets fans and the city of New York.
Two of Granderson's first memories with the Mets were how "thoughtful and generous" David Wright was in helping to get him acclimated and "Lucas Duda hitting bombs."
Granderson and Duda hit it off and "Club Grandy" started in the locker room.
"Anyway, after a while we had the whole setup down," Granderson wrote. "I'd DJ and Duda would serve as my bodyguard during those sets. He wouldn't let anyone get to me, and if any of the guys wanted to make a song request, they'd have to go to Duda first and get his approval before it even got to me. It was awesome."
Granderson also gave a shout out to Mr. Met and wrote about what makes Mets fans special.
"The thing that has always struck me about Mets fans is that they just have so much heart," Granderson wrote. "I always loved how they would give massive ovations to guys like Tim Teufel and Mookie Wilson from that '86 team. Or how they got behind Bartolo Colon in such a cool way. There's a real, genuine love for that team and those players they've rooted so hard for over the years. And they are loyal."
