HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Cammack gave up the 3-run homer to Brian Jordan in the top of the 8th to put the Braves up 8-1 on that Friday night at Shea. The homer appeared to put the game out of reach. But, the Mets scored 10 runs with 2 out in the bottom of the 8th. Cammack was so bad that the official scorer decided he was too ineffective to get the win. Benitez got the win instead of the save. Nice pitching Eric. He was supposed to be part of the Barry Larkin trade. Unfortunately he's still in the Mets organization.

Yep, they should have traded him before blowing out his arm. Needs Tommy John surgery. Remember Derek Wallace? Cammack is the second coming of Wallace.

I played high school ball with Eric and if there is one thing I learned about him is that he never gives up. When Eric recovers from his injury (he does not need Tommy John surgery) and returns in 2002, I believe he will be a permanent key player in the bullpen. Hey, he's from Texas not New York....which is a good thing. We would love to have him back home on the Astros.

It's amazing that some people think they know everything about every player. I am a close friend of Eric's and grew up with him in Nederland. He did not have Tommy John surgery. I talked to him before he left for spring training, and he is ready to go. You will see him on the Mets in 2002. Too bad he is not with the Astros.

Eric Cammack's friend, Torrey, was correct. No, he didn't have Tommy John surgery, but he did have surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow last year. He's currently 0-2 with a 13.50 ERA at Norfolk, so it looks like his chances of pitching for the 2002 Mets before September are pretty slim.

Cammack's chances of pitching for the 2002 Mets just keep getting slimmer and slimmer. He was removed from the Mets 40-man roster and demoted to AA yesterday.

One of about 6 or 7 guys who have a career 1.000 BA. 1- 1. Way to go Eric!!!

He's now in Sacramento(AAA). Pitching pretty decent. Might get called up to Oakland soon.

I remember Eric Cammack as being one of the Mets' best pitching prospects but who seemed perpetually stuck at AAA. I wish him well.

I noticed on the stats he had one career at bat and he hit a triple. My guess is he is the only player or pitcher to have ever achieved this. Another obscure Mets stat.

Yes, Eric is the only player to have a lifetime slugging percentage as a Met over 1.000 by tripling in his only MLB at bat. He is one of six Mets with a lifetime batting average of 1.000.

It's already been mentioned to some extent, but Cammack's 1-1 feat at the plate in 2000 is especially rare.

He is one of only three pitchers to hit a triple in their first and only career at-bats. The others are Scott Munninghoff (1980 Phillies) and Eduardo Rodriguez, a reliever from the 1970s.

A couple other fun facts about that triple...it drove in Benny Agbayani, who was on base. The pitcher he hit it off of, Ron Mahay, would not face the Mets again until 2007 after that game.
