What was wrong with this guy? As far as I know, hitting .300 isn't a bad thing.

He was gone in a blink of an eye but, since he was more of a Yankee, I hate him.

Well, eventhough im best friends with his son, he's a pretty cool guy. In my opinion, he one of the best defensive 3rd baseman in baseball history, thanks to him teaching his son how to pitch a curve ball, his son ended up teaching me, and now I have one of the best curve balls in my shool, according to my coach at least. Well, thanks for the memories Alvaro, Justin

The first time I saw this guy I thought he looked more like my little league coach than a pro baseball player. That makes him suck more.

I went to grammar school with his son Jose. Had the thrill of meeting him and got a signed poster. Helluva nice guy.

Actually, Espinoza was one of the few ex-Yankees I was happy to see in a Mets uniform. After all, he was involved in my all-time favorite Yankees game: Andy Hawkins' losing no-hitter, July 1, 1990.

I thought the Mets gave up on Espinoza too soon. He played well when called upon and was always among the first guys to come out of the dugout to congratulate a teammate.

Espyyyyy!!! Great Yankees defensive shortstop, with the cannon of an arm. Couldn't hit a lick. That .300 average with the Mets was a light .300!

They should have kept him and released Baerga. He was more versatile, a better defensive player and in his brief tenure with the Mets he complied a .784 OPS compared to Baerga's .640 -- with a better RBI per AB ratio to boot.
