A very good signing by Omar Minaya; the guy is versatile. Can play the infield and outfield and hit a little too.

I saw Chris play in Toronto against the Angels when I visited the city last July. He was a late-inning replacement and didn't figure in the Jays' rather one-sided loss (although Ted Lilly added much excitement early on when he retired the first 12 batters he faced).

The next time I saw Chris play was, of course, at Shea Stadium against Florida. That was the 16 April game where he played left field (I think it was the first or second time he played it) and got involved in one of the wildest defensive plays of the year. He misjudged a fly ball, went back on it and made an awkward over-the-shoulder grab; then he righted himself and heaved the ball into the infield to double off the runner. Why ESPN didn't include it in its "Top Plays" segment is mystifying!

I sometimes refer to him as "Woody the Wabbit," which is a takeoff on Bill Murray's line to Chris ("Rudy the Rabbit") Makepeace in the film "Meatballs." He's been an excellent acquisition to the Mets' bench.

Chris is the man. I've had the honor of talking to him for the last few years when he was on the Jays and now on the Mets. He is such a great guy and a great player as well.

I met Chris after a game in Miami this season. 0f all the players he was the only one who obliged autograph requests. Because " called out "CHRlS!" some kid thought he was Kris Benson so a kid gave him a Kris Benson card to sign and his wife corrected the kid that he was Chis Woodward, not Kris Benson. I told his wife that she was cuter than Anna. She blushed and said, "Stop it." (Ed. note: she isn't, but she's no slouch either; in a word: NlCE!) Plus I said that Kris Benson is taller than Chris Woodward. And Mrs. Woodward said, "Besides (Kris) has hair." And defending Chris' honor (from someone who has a nasty receding hairline at a similar age as Woodward) "Ummm... I was trying to avoid saying that." Chris smiled in a gesture of thanks. I should also note that Chris signed all autographs with one hand while holding his infant daughter with the other. So Chris will go down as all-time great in my book.

I like this guy. He's a good utility player and fairly clutch. Nice pinch hit homer to win a game in extra's for the Mets. I hope he's back for 2006.

Can do a bit of everything. A nice surprise and a great guy to have on the bench. Here's hoping he sticks around.

I guess I'm the only one on this site who isn't impressed by Woodward. Sure, he can play lots of positions, but he can't hit at all. I realize his value as a utility player, but he just doesn't do anything for me.

I was doing some channel surfing the other night and lo & behold, there was Chris (as himself) appearing in an episode of the popular Canadian TV series DEGRASSI. There he was in his Blue Jays jacket being the MC for the school talent show.

Woodward might have been good in the clubhouse, but in 2006 he added little with the bat. Sort of a poor man's Joe McEwing, in my opinion.

Chris is now the regular shortstop for the Phillies' Class AAA Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. Those minor league team names just keep getting weirder. He may be up with the Phils soon if someone has to go on the DL.
