MMO’s 2013 Top Spring Performer Is Collin Cowgill

Why Collin Cowgill should be the Mets’ full-time starter in CF

When the Mets traded for Collin Cowgill it seemed to be a nice stroke by Sandy Alderson, as it gave Terry Collins a player to platoon in center field with Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Cowgill had a .784 OPS against LHP while Nieuwenhuis had a .740 OPS versus RHP. While it wasn’t going to make fans forget Carlos Beltran, it would be an improvement over the .711 OPS the Mets got out of...

Collin Cowgill, Marlon Byrd and other Mets who have earned a spot on the roster

Is Collin Cowgill The Answer In Center Field?

Much has been made about the outfield – or lack thereof – situation. Coming into Spring Training, the Opening Day lineup looked like it would include Lucas Duda in left, Kirk Nieuwenhuis in center and Mike Baxter around in right. During the first two weeks of camp games, however, a slightly different narrative seems to be shaping up. Duda is still slotted in left in semi...

Mets Lose To Nats 6-4; Den Dekker Flashes Leather; Cowgill’s Got Game

Collin Cowgill is making gritty fashionable again for the Mets. Lucas Duda did not start tonight’s 6-4 exhibition game loss against Washington, and won’t be in the lineup tomorrow. Look for him Wednesday or Thursday. In his first two games, Duda went 0-for-7 with six strikeouts, and told reporters today, “we’re not going to hit the panic just yet.’’ The Mets will opt...
