May 22, 2005 An absolute steal for the Mets! I can't believe the Yankees let this guy go, he is a perfect utility man who can even play every day. Another brilliant move by Omar.
September 11, 2005 As bad as Matsui has been, Cairo has been just as bad. He may have a slightly better glove but he has little range and he's nothing more than a .250 singles hitter. He has not been at all clutch and is really only suited to come off the bench and get a spot start here or there. That's what he was before playing in the Bronx last year but they could afford to have his bat in their line up. He hit better last year but was in a better line up. I don't know why he got the job over Marlon Anderson or Chris Woodward. They are both better hitters. Matsui was starting to get hot when he got hurt. If he hadn't gotten hurt he probably would have had a good season and Cairo would have stayed on the bench where he belongs.

March 31, 2007 Good player. Was better than Matsui. The thing that upsets me the most is that he only hit 2 hrs in 05. He was a better fielder than Matsui, but not like Fonzie. The part in the season which annoyed me was when Matsui was rehabbing (over the course of half a season) Cairo was made starting 2B, then went on the 15 day DL.
July 6, 2012 Mediocre middle infielder, at best, who thought he was much better than he actually was.
Showed up to Mets Spring Training with a Yankees bag (his former employer) and refused to get rid of it. Weird and obnoxious. Good riddance.
