But it’s really the mix of all Mets fans that makes that fan base so special. And it’s been my absolute privilege to meet and get to know so many of those fans over the past few years.

One of the things that always touched me was that Mets fans would give me gifts. I’d get fans making me bracelets out of rubber bands in Mets colors. Or little kids would make drawings of me and give them to me before games. I even received a crayon with my name on it. I used to love coloring as a kid, but even though I haven’t done it in a while, getting a crayon with my name on it was really cool. Also, one little guy, I’ll never forget it, he gave me his autograph on a baseball card.

I loved that, and I kept that card. Like how New York is that? Here, you take my autograph Mr. Baseball Player.

I will miss watching him play. Such a classy guy. Also, it portrays Wright and Justin Turner in a very good light.

Grandy is the man. A great column unlike Duda's who only professed love for the 7 line. Given Conforto's ailment I would not be surprised if Grandy is back next year.

The Mets have to talk with Granderson about a reunion this off-season. He fits the team on a baseball level (backup across the outfield and a potent bat off the bench), and probably as a mentor and leader for younger players.

I'd prefer Grandy mentoring my young players than Reyes, that's for sure.
