Another Met who hit his stride AFTER leaving Queens. Good leadoff hitter and tought little bastard. Albert Belle smashing into him couldn't keep him down.

Was one of the "v" twins along with quilvio veras in 1994. These were two good players who the Mets traded for no reason and received nothing in return.

I still can't believe the Mets traded Vina for Doug Henry. Vina has become one of the more pesky leadoff hitters in the league, while Henry is one of the worst right handed set up men in the major leagues. At least when the Mets traded Veras, they got a world class talent (albeit a world class maniac) in Carl Everett. Vina for Henry was flat out awful.

The Mets thought about signing him as a free agent and keeping Alfonzo at 3rd base before they went out and got Ventura. Now that was a smart move.

Hard to believe they traded this guy for Doug Henry. Vina didn't have a chance to do very much for the Mets but you could see he was a solid player. I like his hustle and thought he would be solid for the future. Maybe he was expendable since Alfonzo was not far behind. Still, unless you are trading an extra bag of balls, any deal for Doug Henry is a bad one.

Awright! Who was da chowderhead who decided to trade this guy? For DOUG HENRY? All I remember was that Vina not only knew how to get on base, but he also knew what to do when he got there. And he was good with the glove, too.

Who was responsible for this? Dallas? Joe? Fred, Nelson? 1993 was gloriously, spectacularly bad (I'll admit it, I had fun), but did we really have to endure 1994-6 as well?

It is unbelievable to me that the Mets traded Vina for Doug Henry. Vina has helped lead the Cards to the playoffs so many times. He is a great leadoff hitter, and would be a key to any team.

124 at bats for the Mets and was hit by a pitch 12 times. That's a huge number. That's 10% of the time.
