Collin Cowgill thinks he’s had a good spring, and is enjoying the buzz he’s created in social media (Vorkunov, Star Ledger).
Josh Lewin of WFAN had a close call this winter (Kerwick, Bergen Record).
Lucas Duda is finally getting his swing together (Puma, NY Post).
There will be a pack of wild animals at Citi Field this season (Diamond, Wall Street Journal).
Michael Baron, ContributorCowgill has had a good spring, and he’s been a lot of fun to watch over the first couple of weeks. I expect he will make the club, and serve in a platoon role in the outfield, at worst. His aggressiveness and creativity on the bases is representative of exactly what the Mets need to be this season. They are not a team which possesses much speed, and outside of David Wright and Ike Davis, they really lack a lot of extra-base power up and down the lineup. And so, they need to be aggressive, take chances, and try and make things happen on a regular basis in order to score more than the 650 runs they tallied last year. Perhaps Cowgill can be a role model in that regard, as he’s fearless, acts as a spark plug and can change the dynamic of any offensive situation when he’s on-base.
