Bigger douchejuice -- SNY hating Dave Hudgens or out of touch Curtis Granderson?

Mets fired batting coach Dave Hudgens and...he's glad he doesn't have to listen to Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling on SNY any longer. Makes sense.

“The naysayers, the guys who disapprove of us, the guys who I listen to on TV all the time, those guys that know everything about the game, I’m just amazed at it,” Hudgens said. “What’s wrong with getting a good pitch to hit? Somebody, please punch a hole in that for me. I just shake my head at the old-school guys that have it all figured out. Go up there and swing the bat. Well, what do you want to swing at? It just confounds me. It’s just hilarious, really.

“That’s one thing. I’m glad I don’t have to listen to those guys anymore.”

Hudgens continued to spew, "I look it as I had a good opportunity, I did a good job and I made a lot of friends, a lot of great relationships. Every one of the players came and gave me a hug and said how sorry they were. I feel good about that. I feel good that I did everything I could possibly do. Whoever made the decision made the decision for whatever reason. I have no idea why that was made. I can’t tell you who made that decision." Before adding this nonsense, "I really just think guys tried to hard at home. I think the fans are really tough on the guys at home. How can you boo Curtis Granderson? They have no idea how hard this guy works and how he goes about doing his business, doing his job. He gets off to a slow start and they’re booing him? Come on. It’s tougher at home to play than it is on the road, there’s no doubt about it. And they’re trying really hard at home."

Mike Francesa took him to task.

And overpaid strikeout machine Curtis Granderson? He don't get the booing.

"Me myself, I've never booed anybody," he said. "I see no point in it."


"I've always wanted to know why someone would boo, because in the next second they'll cheer," Granderson said. "So which one is it? You like your team or dislike your team? You call yourself a fan and then you'll boo?"


"I understand you're a fan, but at the same time, you aren't playing," he said. "I can see you getting that intense as a player or have played. But if you're just a fan and watching, enjoy the excitement of the game that is in front of you, win, lose or draw, whatever the case is."

Oh, and he's a tough guy to boot.

If there's one thing about booing that Granderson is sure of, it's that fans won't ever do it to a player's face.

He referenced the recent skit on "The Tonight Show" in which New Yorkers booed a poster of Robinson Cano, only to instantly change their tune when the real Cano appeared.

He knows that Mets fans might boo him again someday, but you should know he won't take it to heart. Fans want players to do well. The way Granderson sees it, they just have an odd way of showing it sometimes.

"They know they don't have to interact with you so they have the ability to do or say what they want," he said. "But when they do, their passion, loyalty, excitement always comes out."
