Share your memories of Jason Tyner

HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Is his middle name really "Renyt"? That's Tyner spelled backward!! How awesome is that? I like this guy because (1) he's a beanpole like me (2) he's fast, like me and (3) he's got absolutely no power, like me!

Why does Texas A&M produce these little guys? One good thing, Tyner isn't a cocky little punk like that runt Chuck (Steve Sax) Knoblauch, another A&M product. Keep working on your swing to left and your bunting Jason. You could be the next Brett Butler.

Dude, that's awsome having the middle name spelled backwards from the last name. Kind of like a mirror.

Tyner couldn't even make that awful Devil Ray roster after the spring. He's hitting .287 at AAA.

Can you believe the Mets actually wasted a number one pick on Tyner and then Dumped him off to the D"Rays for Rick White and Bubba Trammell!! Thank you for then dumping Trammell to SD for Donnie Wall. Gee a #1 pick for such a waste in Donnie Wall!!!!!! Typical Mets!

Jason Tyner didn't make the opening day roster because he was still young, he'll be the leadoff man for seasons to come and don't be supraised if you see him steal about 30-40 bases next season

I have no idea why people like Mr. Ichiro51 so drastically overrate Tyner's ability. How is he going to steal 30-40 bases WHEN HE CAN'T GET ON BASE?!?!?!?!? This is a guy with a career OBP of .287. And you think he's the Leadoff Hitter of the Future? Please...He NEVER walks and has no bat control. On top of that, he's terrible defensively. Tyner stinks.

When they traded him I thought the Mets were giving up a lot of talent. But like most Met farm hands, he hasn't panned out. The Mets have to have one of the worst minor league systems around. Very few actually become a good player. Anyway, none of the players in that trade have amounted to anyting. Bubba Trammell is the best of the 4 and he's average at best.

This man probably will end up with more career triple than HR, however he did had 31 steals for the sorry d- rays last season despite spending a month and half in the minor, the best of him is that he donate 2,000 dollars to his HS every year in the Juliet Tyner Foundation, something in remember for his mom who died breast cancer just 2 weeks after he was drafted, a very nice guy to know and he never turns down an autograph request

I referred to him as Jason "Tiny" because of his lack of power. With apologies to "Seinfeld" fans, his popgun offense gives new meaning to the team "shrinkage."

I always wanted him to succeed. I liked his hustle and his play in centerfield, although he really had less power than a penlight battery.

Overlooked in the steroid era. No room in the PT Bud Barnum Selig home run freak show for this player. Bud has plenty of dirty money to rewrite history and keep his own guilty tail out of a federal pen. He should instead be pleading guilty as a doping co-conspirator and apologizing to guys like Tyner who wallow away time in the minors. Tyner would have been outstanding back in an era when real baseball was played.

I agree. He looked like a Richie Ashburn type of player: everything except home runs. He had potential. It is hard to take seriously the last 10 to 15 years of baseball in light of steroids. Not only did rampant steroids use inflate numbers as they inflated players (and rendered too many of them one-dimensional tanks), but it also disfigured the careers of players like Tyner who clearly refused to take them.

Ideally he would have been another Brett Butler. I seem to remember that he was also a good bunter.

Guess what? He just got recalled by the Twins, for whom he played 18 games last year after seeing no MLB action in 2004.

Anyone remember the TV show "JAG"? It featured a character named Petty Officer Jason Tyner, supposedly because one of the writers was a huge Jason Tyner fan ("Petty Officer Tyner" was introduced around the same time the Mets first started touting Jason as one of their top prospects). I'm not sure why, but I heard somewhere that it may have been that they both went to Texas A&M. And yep, Jason's back up at the big league level, and I have a feeling he'll stay. Reminds me of Brett Butler, lots of infield singles. Trading him for Bubba Trammell probably wouldn't have been a waste, but then they went and traded Trammell for Donne Wall, one of the least memorable Mets relievers of the decade.
