December 16, 2001 I remember going on vacation and coming back and looking at the Mets stats in the paper and seeing "Lamb" there and wondering who he was. Then when I checked the roster on the web he was gone. Blink, I missed him.
Pete Caldera as DB
June 9, 2002 Well, he did have an ugly swing but I would have had him over Kurt Abbott. Lamb was good enough offensively, hey his batting average was almost as high as Abbott's. Plus, Lamb made Abbott look like a Little Leaguer defensively.
July 13, 2004 Should have given the kid a shot...Natural swing and a smooth glove up the middle with a cannon for an arm. Most underrated switch hitting shortstop of our time.
August 3, 2004 David Lamb has been with seven different organizations since the end of the 1998 season. In his career he is 30-for-139 with seven extra base hits and eleven walks. His career average is .216, and his career OBP is .273. His fielding percentage and range factors are well below league averages. Those stats have all been compiled in limited playing time, to be fair. He will be 30 next season.
I would think that if the guy was a major league player, someone would have noticed it by now.
