Best thing about this guy was the Murph's pronunciation...Alex Treveeeeeeeeeenyo.

He wasn't so bad, especially in light of what else we had at that time. How Ron Hodges outlasted him on the Mets, I'll never know. (Those two probably didn't have 20 career HRs between 'em.)

I was happy to see Trevino return for a brief cameo in '90.

Webmaster: The tilde (~) over the "n" is a must!

A .262 average and a .304 slugging pct. Now that's POWER!!!

The personification of "Warning Track Power." It's hard to believe he succeeded Johnny Bench in Cincinnati.

The only Met who was a teammate of both Ed Kranepool and John Franco.

Another classic entry in the no hitting, good defensive catchers. Like his backup catching brethren, he had a larger than deserved fan following. He succeeded Johnny Bench in Cincinnati and that was a tall order. I remember he never did anything to hurt us when he played, he never seemed to do anything extraordinary either. With his bushy mustache he looked like a singer in the Village People. It is an indictment of the level of catchers in the 1980s that he was able to carve out a 12 year career!

I liked how Murphy always described Trevino as having "catlike quickness."

When the Mets reacquired Alex in 1990, I thought he was going to be the next Lee Mazzilli in terms of bringing back some guy who was on the poor Mets teams from the late 1970s and get a shot at a World Series ring. I also remember seeing a brief interview with him on TV saying how glad he was to come back. Well, he came back... and then he went in just over a month.

I think he holds the dubious Mets record for having the most at-bats as a regular player without hitting a home run for them.

Very fine defensive catcher. But he had very little pop in the bat. No home runs as a Met, ever. None! Fly balls to the warning track.

I remember seeing him at third base, looking lost (like many Met third basemen).

It was a telling measure of how badly the Mets had fallen (and how lifeless they had become) by 1990 that I honestly thought Trevino would provide a major spark when he came back to Shea. Career backup catcher though he was, he certainly sounded spirited enough when he was interviewed on WFAN soon afterwards. As it turned out, he did help his team win the 1990 World Series - except it was the Reds, not the Mets.

Has the dubious distinction of most AB's as a Met (733) with zero HR's. Even Seaver and Koosman, the only two pitchers who had more Met AB's than Trevino, went deep at least once.

Honorable(?) mention goes to Frank Taveras with 1 HR in 1,480 AB's.

Great teammate on 1976 Lynchburg Mets. One of the best all-around players I played with. Great catcher with quick release and could play all the infield positions. Handled the bat o.k. but was noted for his defense which kept him in the major leagues for a long time.
