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.
