It didn’t take very long for newly acquired outfielder, Collin Cowgill to make an impression amongst New York Mets fans. Anyone whose playing style is compared to Lenny Dykstra has the chance to a fan favorite in Queens.  With a 2-for-2 performance on Saturday, and two more hits on Sunday, the Mets twitterverse was ready to embrace #MoreCowgill: #bbpBox_305396154210848769 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_305396154210848769 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } 2:16 PM, 2/23/2012: First hand clap and fist pump of the baseball season. #Cowgill February 23, 2013 2:18 pm via webReplyRetweetFavorite @Metstradamus Metstradamus #bbpBox_305395228548947969 a { text-decoration:none; color:#1A00AD; }#bbpBox_305395228548947969 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } I GOT A FEVER.

He’s exactly what people have told me about him. He plays hard — aggressive at the plate, aggressive on the bases.” While production is the ultimate judge, his style of play will surely make him a fan favorite in Queens.  It’s only been two days, but Mets fans are ready to embrace #MORECOWGILL.    

With Feliciano Sidelined, Battle for Second Lefty in Bullpen Begins

Updated by HoJo on 2/24 Pedro Feliciano will be shut down for at least two weeks from baseball activity while he wears a heart monitor while the team doctors continue to monitor could be a potentially serious heart condition, It’s not exactly clear if Feliciano has a hole in his heart or even if that’s the cause of his irregular heartbeat. The next two weeks will help doctors...

Davis homers, Mets suffer first preseason loss to Nats

It took until the Mets’ fourth Spring Training game for the team to finally be outscored, so that’s good. Although New York lost to Washington last night 6-4, there were a number of positives to take away. For one, Wilmer Flores looked comfortable at second base. I wondered earlier this month about the longtime prospect’s future on defense. Based on how they are playing him...

Analysis of the Mets announcers: Gary, Keith and Ron

Over the course of Spring Training, we will be doing a series of articles where we analyze the Mets announcers (both current and former).  Today we bring you the first article in the series: Gary, Keith and Ron. There are two categories of baseball broadcasters: Vin Scully and everyone else. In recent years, one television crew has begun to emerge as the leader of the “everyone...

The 2012 Mets in the Zone, a Month by Month Breakdown.

I probably wasn’t the only person frustrated last year watching Kirk Nieuwenhuis, or Lucas Duda, or Ike Davis appearing to take fat pitches down the middle of the plate only to see them swing at a breaking pitch in the dirt or a fastball at eye level. On several notable occasions Keith Hernandez himself went off on hitters taking 2-1 fastballs “right down the pike” as he...

Slow Start Sends Duda to the Sidelines for a Few Days

I expressed my concerns about Lucas Duda’s 0-7 start late last night, which you can read below. I was not surprised by what I predicted would be an avalanche of “it’s only two games” rebuttals. There they are for all of you to see. It seems like many readers chose to ignore that it was Terry Collins who referred to Duda as a “work in progress” and that those were his...

The 2013 Mets Have No Chance To Win. However…

We wont win this season. We wont compete this season. We wont be any good this season. Okay, now that that’s settled, lets go ‘Play Ball’ this season and see what happens. Opening Day is a little over one month away and when that first pitch is thrown, the Mets technically have just as good a chance as anyone to win. We Mets fans are an interesting bunch Always have been. In...

New York Mets Matt den Dekker robs home run rather impressively (Video)

As MLB spring training is officially underway, we have our first home run robbery to take note of. In the seventh inning of the Mets/Nationals game on Tuesday night, New York outfield prospect Matt Den Dekker took what appeared to be a home run from the Nationals Anthony Rendon: Your browser does not support iframes.

Mets rumors: NY had expected to add Justin Upton or Michael Bourn

Entering the offseason, one of the New York Mets’ top priorities was improving their outfield. This ultimately didn’t happen, but there was a time in January when general manager Sandy Alderson expected to acquire Justin Upton or Michael Bourn, according to John Harper of The New York Daily News. Alderson wouldn’t admit that he missed out on either player, as...

Taking 2013 Optimism To The Bronx

I love the air of optimism that occurs this time of year. Over the last few days we’ve seen a slew of MMO writers share their optimistic predictions for 2013, all sharing the same tone “Why not us?” In truth, the question is fair. Last year, nobody saw Oakland coming. The year prior, Arizona caught the league off guard and took the division from the 2010 World champion Giants...

Spring Is Here

Rejoice!  Games are here and we can now watch pitchers pitch, hitters hit, and fielders field.  As an added bonus, we will no longer be subjected to filler stories about Bobby Bonilla’s salary or what David Wright likes to eat on Tuesdays.  Needless to say, it is a time of the year we all look forward to. However, I advise you to be careful my friends.  I want to remind you...
