Why the hell didn't they let this guy play? He is a superb third baseman. He can also play many other positions. Plus he can hit! There's no way around it. Craid Paquette is just another guy the Mets dumped.

I played with "Poker" back in Golden West Jr.College in Huntington Beach, CA., when he was 18, 19 years old, and he could mash back then, Congrats Poke, its been fun following your games season after season.

Anyone who thinks this guy can hit has been watching too much of the 2002 Mets. This guy's CAREER on base percentage is less than .300.

Dare I say it: he's terrible.

Never cry over losing a mediocre player. You can turn over a rock and find another.

Paquette would have played more in his first and only call-up with the Mets if he didn't get hurt the next week, and spend months on the DL. Alfonzo was on the DL, and so was another OF at the time Paquette himself strained something or other, I think his shoulder.

He seemed to be the last guy cut in spring training a couple of years, but there was never quite enough room for him.

I disagree with Chris on Paquette. He should have made the '98 and '99 Mets' squads. After all, he was traded for Shawon Dunston, who remained with the team into the postseason. Besides, his defensive capabilities put him in the same class as Joe McEwing. If you can recall, Paquette is the reason McEwing was acquired in the first place. Super Joe lost his 2b job to Vina, and was supposed to play off of the bench in 2000 for the Cards. Then, Paquette comes along and hits for some decent power. Okay, he was bad with the Tigers, but in 1998, he should have been playing off of the bench for the NYM.

"Pack it and ship it" Paquette, which is about what the Mets did with him. Was quite adept at being forgettable.
