Grandy: 'True NYers are Mets fans.' Agree?

By Matt Marrone

Curtis Granderson
Curtis Granderson is already working to endear himself to Mets fans.
Yankee-turned-Met Curtis Granderson, in his introductory news conference Tuesday, said "true New Yorkers are Mets fans."

Wait, what?

To be fair, he was paraphrasing the words of others, but that sound bite has already had a ripple effect in the Big Apple.

Here's Grandy's full quote:

"A lot of the people I've met in New York have always said true New Yorkers are Mets fans. So I'm excited to get a chance to see them all out there."

Do you agree with the people Grandy has met? Or do you doubt their sentiments (or his)?
