Well this answers my question from a couple of days ago about what ever happened to Jeffry Marte.
Hope this Cowgill guy is decent. Still want another OF who is better though.
New York Giants- New York Mets- Arsenal FC- Duke Basketball- New York Knicks
Nice swing in that video. Same stance/swing as Wright. Could be ok if he can bring his AA production to the majors.
Cowgill was ranked 10th in the Oakland system prior to the season by Sickels. That is a huge get for Marte who doesn't come close in our rankings.
Will Lagares be given any a chance to be on the roster at some point this season?
It's definitely the type of move I wanted the Mets to make. This guy won't be here for too long. He's a good stopgap at the very least.
It shows we are definitely going all in next offseason. Since we are not making the long-term signings to give us space for them next year
If he pans out he could be our Victorino. Solid avg, gap power and speed.
I'd rather him in the lineup than Bay...
Decent get. Nothing to jump for joy. I still would like to see another real outfielder come in. Like the fact that he can play all outfield positions.
Traded our Dickey for a Cowgirl. What a series of events...
In all seriousness, I like this deal. It's good to see the front office really taking this "rebuilding with young talent thing" seriously and getting players who can help in a year or two and players for the far future (3, 4, 5 years).
It's all about 2015 and beyond. 2013 is to NOT BE IMPORTANT.
As long as we don't sacrifice 2014-2015 and beyond for a few extra wins in 2013, I'll be happy.
So we got Brandon Hicks, Collin Cowgill, and Anthony Recker. All 3 of those guys played for the A's last year lol.
