In Off-Season, Mets Flawed Outfield Goes Unaddressed –

An interesting observation from the NY Times.  The bold is mine.

As it stands, the Mets do not seem to possess a single everyday outfielder on their roster. They have three left-handed-hitting outfielders in Lucas Duda, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Mike Baxter, and one right-handed bat, Collin Cowgill. This week, Cowgill became the team’s first significant off-season addition, when he was acquired from Oakland for Jefry Marte, a minor league infielder. Cowgill, 26, has a .255 average, a .654 on-base-plus-slugging percentage and just 2 home runs through 74 games in the majors.

  1. Yay, another blatant headline grabber by the NY media. The headline appears to claim that the Mets have finished their offseason without adding any outfielders (false – offseason far from over). The actual article outlines exactly why they need to add an outfielder and how they appear to be planning to go about it (all true). This is why I get my news from blogs and twitter.

    • Agreed. this is like a “as it stands, lunch has gone uneaten” headline at 11am.
