May 18, 2005 OK arm, a decent backup. Was only called up because Ramon Castro was hurt and Mike Jacobs isn't ready to come up from AAA-Norfolk. He is a journeyman, but a nice backup option to have.
August 5, 2007 This guy has class. He was willing to go down to AAA and work with the Mets' young players and didn't complain about it. And he's been up to the Mets and then down again. I give him a lot of credit.
August 17, 2007 Mike is living proof that if you are a catcher you can play for a long time.

August 20, 2007 Amazin'! In just 6 games he's already had 2 more hits and 4 more RBIs than in his stints in 2005-06 (26 games total) combined! Way to unexpectedly step it up upon becoming starting catcher by default (get well soon Lo Duca & Castro).
August 9, 2010 One of the great non-hitting position players in Mets history.
September 27, 2010 Mike was the greatest defensive catcher behind the dish in Mets history. The way he called a game makes him an unknown Mets great. Rumor has it when Shea Stadium was being torn down, Mike Difilece would walk around the inside at night.
