Cowgill Named Everyday CF, Team Not Comfortable With Valdespin In Outfield

According to manager Terry Collins, center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis has officially made the Mets active roster as the fourth outfielder. But what is most surprising is that he named Collin Cowgill as the Mets everyday center fielder. It was expected that Collins would work Cowgill in a platoon role, but it looks like with few options, the Mets will hand him the everyday gig and...

Post Game: Niese Sparkles; Offense Rocks In Mets’ Opening Day Rout

How appropriate. It was overcast for much of the day, but shortly after this afternoon’s 11-2 rout of the San Diego Padres, it started to rain on Citi Field.

Let the Padres win Wednesday night and when they return to San Diego, but today belonged to the Mets...

Cueto, Weaver risky starts in Week 1

Start 'Em Jon Niese (SD, MIA) Niese quietly assembled a sound 2012 campaign in his third full season in the Bigs, with a 3.40 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in over 190 innings. Don't be concerned with his 3.74 ERA at home, as Niese's 1.12 WHIP illustrates the 26-year-old was better than believed in Flushing Meadows. Though Niese's .272 BABIP gives pause on his ability to...

I Need More Cowgill

Leadoff man Collin Cowgill went 2-5 with a double & a grand slam and veteran Marlon Byrd went 2-5 with 2 singles, driving in a run on both.Aside from Cowgill and Byrd, four other Mets had a multi hit game against the Padres - Daniel Murphy, John Buck, Ruben Tejada and pitcher...

Main attractions missing from Padres-Mets opener

Two main attractions will be missing when the New York Mets host San Diego in their season opener Monday. Chase Headley, the biggest bat on the Padres and last season's NL RBI leader, is sidelined for a few weeks with a broken thumb. Johan Santana's future is far more precarious. After re-tearing the anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder, the one-time Mets ace is scheduled...

A few thoughts on Opening Day and this season

Would you have believed me in February if I told you the Mets would win Opening Day 11-2 because of guys like Collin Cowgill, Marlon Byrd, and John Buck? Did you think at that time in February that a Mets center fielder would leadoff on Opening Day and hit a double and a grand slam?
