Follow him since the day he and his twin brother signed contract together with the Mets about 5 years ago, met him twice during minor league games while telling him that I'm a big fan on asian players, MLB need more player like Jae Weong Seo now days...pitched a perfect inning in his debut tonight, hope he'll be a good one

I'm with you Ichiro! Seo has had some real setbacks in the minor leagues so I hope he turns out to be a successful major league player.

Right now Jae Seo is pitching real well. he pitched great against the D-Backs, even though he Mets lost. And in his last start he pitched well, but got a no-decision. I know this guy will be around for years to come in the future.

Jae has come out of nowhere to become our most successful pitcher this season. The only knock on him is that his fastball does not have much velocity. I know that years back he was touted as a fire-baller, but he had Tommy John surgery on his elbow.

I have heard some experts say that if a pitcher has TJ surgery at a somewhat young age, it takes 2 to 3 years to fully recover. But afterwards the surgery can actually make a hard thrower throw even harder. I don't know if I buy that, and I can't remember how many years ago Jae had the surgery. But if it's true can you imagine how good he would be if he could add a 90-95 mph fastball to his already potent repetoire? Don't get me wrong, he's got nasty stuff already, but if what I heard is true, he could really turn out to be an Ace. He's right around the strike zone every pitch and umpires love that. On top of that, it's easy to see that most hitters are fooled or at least uneasy with him on the mound.

Anyone remember how long it's been since he went under the knife? Has anyone ever heard about the theory of coming back stronger after TJ surgery? I'm curious to know.

What a brilliant year he's having. Wow! A 6 2-3- inning, no-run, one-hit, no-walk effort against the Fish. Who would've thought he would outpitch Glavine, Leiter and everyone else on the staff this year? I just pray he's the real deal. He gets more impressive every time out. Without a doubt, Seo's pitching has been the brightest part of this dim year.

July 25, 2003
I was afraid of this. The league has obviously figured him out, I believe he is winless in his last 5 starts. He's got to develop another pitch or two to be successful next year because now that everyone knows how he pitches he is getting the crap beat out of him, although I'm not sure that loser Vern Rhule will be able to help him do that.

Figured him out? How is he going to win games when Mets' offense give him 1-2 runs of support, sometime none when he pitches? Seo is the real deal, coming back from Tommy John early in his career and keep working hard down in the minor league earn him an opening day roster this year. He'll just keep winning and be a warrior for the Mets' pitching staff for years to come. He has made 30 starts this season for the Mets, the first Mets rookie pitcher to do so since Ron Darling and Dwight Gooden.

Ichiro51, I didn't go back to read my exact comments, but I do believe I left room for improvement, regardless of the lame offense, Jae had a stretch there where he was getting rocked and knocked out of the box early in games giving up 4 or 5 runs before the 5th inning so even if they could have scored runs for him the team was playing catch-up ball constantly there for a while, and a winning team doesn't do that. I did say he had to make some adjustments and throw more then 2 standard pitches which apparantly he did. I'm watching MLB a long time and this team practically all of my life and I have seen this syndrome time and time again-I know what I'm talking about. Hopefully he can reprise his good performance next season and remember thse adjustments he made.

I remember when they signed him and his brother out of Korea. Jae was supposed to be a superstar but has not come close. He had some glimpses of talent in 2003 but took a step back in 2004 and will more than likely be in someone's bullpen in 2005. He has lost his value and will probably never be what he should have been.

The game of August 19, 2005 was one of the best games I've been to in a long time. And Jae Seo deserves credit for this outstanding run of his. In the 8th inning when he got the final out to essentially preserve the 1-0 victory, his pumped up reaction was great to see. This guy wants to do well and win and I really like him. And the Jae Seo section of fans with thunder sticks is cool to watch also when he pitches at Shea.

August 27, 2005
After a promising rookie season and disarrayed and disappointing second year, he's now back with some new stuff and maturity. Is it a high point of his career or are we witnessing the beginning of something special? I surely hope for the latter and it happens while he's with the Mets.

Seo was once a VERY highly rated prospect. He had some arm troubles before his rookie year. I think he is learning to pitch and coming into his own. I think he will have a career similar to Ron Darling.

I thought for sure after last season's poor performance that Jae had worn out his welcome with the Mets. But when he got the chance this year he has been lights out. His new pitch learned in Norfolk has resurrected his career and he is becoming everything the Mets thought he would be when they signed him out of South Korea. He has been their best pitcher in the second half. But can we count on him to do that in 2006? I'd like to think so but I can still see the 2004 Jae Seo and wonder if this year is just a tease and he's not really that good.

Currently the 6th highest paid player on the D-Rays at $1,200,000. He's got an ERA of 8.10 and a WHIP of 1.90 and a BAA of .366. Amazingly he is 3-4. How the hell did he win 3 games? That's proof positive that for Anthony Young to lose all of those games in a row he had to suck pretty bad.
