He stays healthy and continues to pitch as he has in his first two starts, the trade will no longer be known as the Burnitz trade but the D'Amico trade. Hope he doesn't leave as a free agent after one year.

D'Amico is currently pitching himself out of New York. He has been absolutely awful since the end of May. He's not pitching to the corners of the zone, leaving fat fastballs over the middle of the plate. And when it starts to unwind for him, he has no clue how to stop it from completely falling apart. For the first time in his career, he's completely healthy, but that health does no good when he's pitching like garbage.

He looked pretty good in April and most of May but has been dreadful lately. Problem is do you hang onto a guy like this or let him walk? He needs to prove himself in the second half. I believe he is a free agent and if he doesn't have a good second half he won't be worth very much.

I don't know why but I think the Mets should hold onto him. He has good ball movement and I really think a lot of talent but he hasn't been able to put it together yet. He had a real good game last night, he was over due, but I think we have yet to see his best. He will improve. Beside that I can't help thinking he looks like a martian.

Maybe I was wrong about this guy. His last time out he pitched a real good game and I start to believe. Last night he stunk up the place and was out after 3 innings. We can't make the playoffs with guys like him and Estes pitching every 5 days. Send the martian packing!

He stinks. Watching him and this year's team is like watching a wounded animal try to walk. Almost every time he pitches the team is down 4-0 by the the third inning.

Its too bad that D'Amico did not work out. Now the trade that was made for him and Burnitz is absolutely awful and that is really hard considering we gave up crap. We got even worse crap in return if such a thing is possible.

Showed good stuff early in 2002, but totally fell apart later in the year.

He had a myriad of injuries with the Brewers, and had only once before pitched in anything close to a full big league season. It could be that lack of arm strength, not lack of pitching ability, is what did him in for the Mets.

He's entering the 2003 season as the Pirates fifth starter after signing a minor league contract with them.

Gregory, please stop with the excuses for Jeff D'Amico! He's a bum! The guy had one good year, the same with Shawn Estes. D'Amico is the epitome of a mediocre pitcher who is a living example of MLB having at least four teams too many. This guy couldn't make a big league roster if contraction went through.

I remember a game where the Mets were down a run, and D'amico hit with 2 outs and a runner on 2nd. He hit a bloop single into right field. As the crowd cheered, the right fielder picked up the ball, and threw out Jeff by a mile at first base, who never got out of first gear.

That kinda summed up his time with the Mets.

Before he went down in '02 with injuries, this guy had a great, I MEAN, GREAT curve ball. I'll never forget being in a bar with some buds of mine and they said, "Hey! Did you see that curve ball??? WOW!!!" Too bad this guy didn't pan out, he could've really been something if he remained healthy! Then again, so could a lot of players...
