Move over, Veeck as in wreck. We have the SNEAD with SPEED.

Not since Lou Thornton and Rodney ("I'll Run Through the Wall for You") McCray have we had a young man with blistering speed as Esix Snead. If he can supply a steady stick, then Snead as in Speed undoubtedly will be up there in triples and stolen bases once his Met career is through.

Remember, we have the SNEAD with SPEED! Get used to it. Plus, he has a great spelling of his first name. How can he miss?

Gary Cohen the other day compared him to that guy from the A's in the 70's, I think his name was Washington, who was used purely as a pinch runner. Point being Esix can't hit a lick but he can run like Renaldo Nehimiah.

His problem is he cannot steal first base. Automatic out, bit would be exciting if he could get on base. (P.S. Mr. Sparkle, the designated pinch runner on the early 1970s A's Teams was Herb Washington).

The guy with the name out of a Dr. Seuss book sure was fun to watch during Spring Training. But for those of you who think he'll stick with the Mets, I have two words for you: Jason Tyner.

Snead embodies everything Steve Phillips looks for when evaluating young outfield talent. Lots of speed, no size, no power, no plate discipline, and no ability to get on base regularly. If this were beer league softball, he'd be very valuable as a designated runner for the fat first baseman who can't run. But this being the major leagues, he has no future swinging that horrible stick the way he does. Take a look at the stats for the lower minors in the Mets system. There are plenty of guys with a lot of stolen bases who have terrible OBP and slugging percentages. I will never understand what the Mets are looking at when they are scouting outfield talent. In my mind, they are the worst in baseball at evaluating outfield talent.

Despite it being a meaningless September game, Esix got me really pumped tonight! I never thought this guy could come up with a big hit but he hit a huge 3 run homer in the 11th to help the Mets beat the lowly Expos for the first time in a long while. The season is long over but I still feel great when they win, no matter what. And although I still think Snead has no real future, I loved his meaningless, September call up, out of the race home run. It just makes me feel good.

I don't mean to be rude, but this little guy has no offensive skills to speak of. But he seems like a nice fella ...

I have to agree with everyone that has has no real offensive value, but he's fast and got a real cool name. Esix Snead? That rocks!

I saw Esix Snead play in the NY-Penn League with the NJ Cardinals. Decent player who was impossible to throw out when stealing. Good thing he's not a shortstop with that first name!

Classic name. Hit that game winning HR in September a few seasons ago.

Did any of you see the brawl Esix started by charging the mound today in the minors? NASTY! I used to hang out with Esix in college. He was the fastest guy on UCF's team as long as I knew him (92-94 I think).! Anyways he is the only major leaguer I knew from high school or college, so I am following his career pretty closely.

I always thought he was going to make it in the majors; he had great speed and could hit well enough. Does anyone know what happened to him?

It's a shame this guy was not a shortstop, as we'd hear it every time he'd get an error.

I saw him score from first base as a pinch runner in '04 against Colorado. He was stepping into the dugout giving high fives by the time the throw reached the plate. Best pure speed the Mets have had since Mookie (since he was pre-Reyes, of course).
