It was great watching him get a win in his Mets debut. He was a great pickup, along with Steve Reed, from the Padres. He'll be good down the road.

The Mets claimed him on waivers in the winter after the 2000 season only to have the Padres claim him back.

His health and command have been his biggest obstacles to success, but going into the 2002 season, he seems healthy, and if the Mets ever give him a chance, he might be useful.

Middlebrook is another guy that the Mets have always had interest in and they have pursued in trades over the years similar to John Thompson. Also similar to Thompson they finally got their guy last year and brought him in. Also similar to Thompson, he sucks. He seems to pitch great in AAA but can't seem to do much at the major league level. His stats at Norfolk are very good but when he pitches for the Mets he can't get an out. Last night in Colorado was not a big surprise that he gave up 3 runs without getting an out. I don't think he'll ever amount to anything, at least not in NY. Maybe he's just a solid AAA pitcher and nothing more.

This clown is WORTHLESS. Entrusting him last night, as Art Howe did, to protect a lead at Coors Field shows as much judgment as appointing R. Kelly as the principal of an all-girls junior high school. As soon as I saw him enter the game last night, I knew it was over. What the hell did Steve Phillips ever see in Middlebrook, anyway. I remember last year in San Diego when he was a Padre and Mike Piazza torched him for a grand slam. The Padres responded by sending him to Triple-A. Then we trade for him? Doesn't Art Howe realize an overworked Mike Stanton, David Weathers or Graeme Lloyd, (or even a stoned Grant Roberts, for that matter) would've been better to use in Coors Field than this guy.

Two words: God awful. No command of any of his pitches. Flat fastball. Couldn't throw the slider for a strike if you put a gun to his head. His typical inning is walk the leadoff hitter on 5 pitches, fall behind the next hitter, groove the fastball which gets roped for a double. Then he starts to overthrow... Garbage.

You know I think that Steve Phillips gets a lot of undue heat for his term as GM with a lot of trades he did (like Alomar and yes even the Mo Vaughn deal) making sense at the time. But this one was goddawful.

Jason Middlebrook and Steve Reed for Jason Bay??????

Can you imagine how good our outfield would have been with Bay the past few years and neither Reed nor Middlebrook contributed a thing.

This isn't on the top list of all time Mets blunders but it's pretty dang close.
