Segui's numbers in 95 with the Mets were a harbinger of what was to come. This guy's a perennial .300 hitter. Great fielder to boot.

He LOVES to flex his guns, wearing a uniform that would be tight on the batboy.

This memory is post-Mets, but it still rates:

Summer 1999 at the Metrodome. The Mariners arrived Friday to play the Twins in the opener of a three-game series. I slithered my way into the best seat in the house: First row behind the Mariners dugout/on-deck circle. In his second AB, Segui hit a broken bat grounder to second. Disgusted, he threw the handle toward the dugout as he ran to first. Hitting coach Jesse Barfield(!) left his perch on the top step of the dugout to retrieve it. As he returned to the dugout, I yelled, "Hey Jesse! Can I get the handle?" Barfield looked up at me and then handed me Segui's handle. Still the A.L.'s leading assist man! When the batboy returned with the barrel of the bat, Barfield called for it and then handed me the barrel as well!

The kicker: Segui doesn't even use his own bat -- it's a black, Mizuno, Glenallen Hill model.

ANOTHER BAD METS TRADE!!!!!

If you track this trade. The end result is the acquisition of Turk. Personally I think we were better off keeping Segui.

Baltimore signed Rafael Palmeiro in '94 and didn't need Segui anymore. He was a good glove no bat switch hitting first baseman. The Mets needed a glove at first base after Eddie Murray left (thankfully). Segui was playing a great first base and was even hitting more than he was supposed to. Then he got hurt, and the Mets were forced to call up Rico Brogna, who started tearing the cover off the ball. Segui came back but his spot at first base was gone, so they shifted him to the outfield. Segui was pissed and let everyone know it. He did not want to play the outfield, and his batting stats went to hell. He complained so much that the Mets traded him early in '95. That's when he finally became a major league hitter. It turned out to be a bad trade, but they couldn't keep both Brogna and Segui. The Mets thought Brogna would be a better major league hitter. They thought wrong.

If you want to go even further, the result of this trade was Bruce Chen.

I could never understand what the big deal was with this guy. I think he was overpaid and really helped the team get no place. I think Turk is better than him because he could pitch decent.

One of the most injury prone players ever has stolen money for nearly ever team he's played for. In the last three years he has played in like one fourth of the games the O's have played. Segui's injuries here did open the door for Brogna.

Dallas Green said he was "tickled" to receive Jose Vizcaino and David Segui prior to the 1994 season. But the laugh was on him and us when Segui failed to deliver while Vizcaino - rejected in favor of the immortal Rey Ordonez - became a World Series hero at our expense.
