Everett is showing the Red Sox exactly why the Mets sent him packing to Houston for a fourth-rate reliever like John Hudek. Flat out he is a nutcase. A lunatic with a hair-trigger temper. Amazing talent, but with his fifth organization. Mets got him from Florida for Quilvio Veras.

Everett is a player with excessive amounts of talent but acts like a 3 year old sometimes. The guy is a walking time bomb and I am glad the Mets got rid of him.

Clearly one of the most talented players to ever play for the Mets. Hit some of the longest bombs in team history.

Easy to say that he shouldn't have been traded now but he's worn out his welcome wherever he's been, except Houston. They couldn't/wouldn't pay him.

Sort of an Albert Belle type, except that Everett cares about winning. Albert only cares about Albert and his number$.

Will absolutely erode any team he's on from the inside. There has to be a reason the Mets, Marlins, Yankees and Astros gave up on his "immense talent". As long as the Red Sox consider him a cornerstone of their pennant hopes, the curse is quite safe.

To quote the title of an Iggy and the Stooges LP, Carl Everett was "RAW POWER!"

His hitting, especially the bombs he launched, reminded me so much of John Milner.

My memories of Carl Everett are basically nothing but bad. He belongs more on Riker's Island more than a major league ballpark. How can you respect anybody who headbutts umpires, beats his children, and whines about getting thrown at when he stand right on top of home plate?

Given that the Mets put up with lunatical, wife- beating [in this case, child-beating] outfielders [i.e. - Strawberry] - why not give this guy a shot for a couple of seasons. After all, he was a switch hitter with some pop. Instead, the Mets trade for a one-hit wonder....John Hudek...makes the all-star team with the 'stros and vanishes soon after. Hudek was Tim Burke re-incarnated....yet not nearly as good....and that in itself is scary.

Child abuser, crybaby and all around jackass. He makes Straw and Doc look like solid citizens. He symbolizes all that is wrong in professional sports---with a modicum of talent we will forgive all transgressions against civil behavior. Instead of earning millions he should be doing a guest spot on "Oz."

I was ready to defend the Mets' decision to trade Everett... until I saw at the top that they received John Hudek in return. It's okay to get rid of a talented walking mine-field, but is it too much to ask for the Mets get something remotely equivalent in return? Maybe.

The Yankees drafted him #10 in the draft, but let him go to the Marlins in the expansion draft because he hurled profanities at the coaches. The Marlins let him go because of the same reason. The Mets let him go because he physically attacked Bobby Valentine. The Red Sox let him go because he did attack his teammates both physically and verbally and did all but maim Jimy Williams. The Red Sox, of course, were dunderheads who chose Everett over Williams, and didn't get rid of him til he got injured and barely hit his own weight. Now Everett is with Texas because John Hart is the Father Flanagan of baseball -- and he's now a glorified .250/11 HR hitter.

Oh, he also plea bargained down to child neglect from child abuse, claimed dinosaurs never existed, and still mumbles about the Yankees and Mets and how lousy their organizations are because they somehow wronged him. Oh, and he's also got a lifetime ban from the Venezuelan League.

What a role model (for Charles Manson, that is. heh)

Carl Everett is also the guy who claims man has never been on/walked on the moon. Nothing likeable about this buffoon.

All I know is that Carl would not make a very good babysitter.

April 12, 2006
My favorite Met in 1997. Clutch. Saw him hit two HRs vs. Cincy to win a game...then late in the season he launched a two-out, 3-2 pitch for a grandslam in the bottom of the ninth to tie Montreal. A game the Mets won on a Gilkey homer in the 12th or 13th. He had other big hits that season. Personality sucked. Not his playing ability.

Next to Strawberry probably the most physically impressive Met I've ever seen. Muscles on his muscles.

Whatever talent Carl Everett may have had, he can be summed up in one word: thug. What a waste of ability.

We always called him C-Everett-Kook. He was good at one thing: wearing out his welcome.

Bad old Carl, how I try to forget and remember him at the same time! Like the time he head butted the umpire while playing for the Red Sox (vs the Mets no less) during a heated argument on the FOX Saturday game of the week. With his temper, he should have given Ultimate Fighting a try.

Although I missed seeing the bombs he hit (I was a bit young at the time) with the Mets, Everett seems like the 90s version of Lastings Milledge to me, except that Everett wasn't such a highly touted prospect and did not make any rap records. Instead, Everett allegedly hit his kids, which is morally wrong.

The guy just can't avoid trouble. First the child abuse case in 97, then the butting heads with Ron Kulpa in 2000 (against the Mets as a member of Red Sox), and mostly recently, he assaulted his wife of 18 years and put a gun to her head. I hope for his own sake he is getting some counseling on anger management because he is just a social disaster everywhere he has been for almost 20 years now (at least from the public eye).

Regardless of the off-field stuff, Everett had the talent and it was a shame that the Mets didn't get his full potential during his stay here. What's interesting though is that if Lance Johnson never had shin splints in 97, Everett would have probably spent a lot more time on the bench because Gilkey was in left and Huskey was in right. I guess that was the kind of break Everett needed after his disastrous 96 season.

Wherever he is, I hope he's becoming a better person.
