Three reasons Kirk Nieuwenhuis won’t be a full-time starter

As Spring Training gets into full swing for the New York Mets, there are several players that have stood out early on. Among these players is a fan favorite, Kirk Nieuwenhuis. For the past few seasons, Nieuwenhuis has had a legitimate opportunity to break camp as a starter in the Mets outfield but to no avail. With his hot start making a bold statement this past week (.476 AVG...

New York Mets: backup outfielders off to fast start

After two spring games for the New York Mets, two of the more noticable contributions came from backup outfielders. More specifically, the two guys projected to be 4th and 5th on the depth chart. It began with Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Nieuwenhuis was my early favorite to earn the 5th outfielder/left-handed batter off the bench job and he went a long way towards solidifying that in game...

Kirk Nieuwenhuis is Making the Most of His Latest Opportunity

One player who is really surprising me with his recent play is Kirk Nieuwenhuis. As I wrote last year on Mets Minors – Kirk was the forgotten man in the depth chart, a player whose star had fallen to the point where he didn’t even get a September call-up when the rosters expanded. But here he is, back with the team since his exile in Las Vegas ended in June, and playing like...

We all know that there are things in life you just shouldn’t do. You should never text and drive, you should never get involved in a land war in Asia and you should never make roster decisions based solely on Spring Training stats. But there are reports that Terry Collins was tapping furiously on his phone while driving down the highway to get to the local Denny’s in time...
