Hernandez was an exciting, if streaky, player at Norfolk in 2005. It looked like he would represent the Mets future at 2nd Base, complementing a young infield of Wright, Reyes, and Jacobs. However, he didn't hit in the big leagues in 2005. Good luck at winter ball, Anderson!

Many Mets fans wanted Hernandez called up by mid-season to replace Kaz Matsui, Miguel Cairo, and Marlon Anderson at second base.

The Mets were not planning to call him up in September, except that they faced one too many middle infield injuries.

All glove, no stick. Not a problem today, though. Exhibited range and aim that his second bagger predecessors were so glaringly lacking. Don't ever bunt 0-2 again, though. Never.

Saw him at the open workout this year. At BP, others like Wright and Delgado are slamming the ball. Hernandez comes up, I think to myself: "OK- let's see what you can do" and he can't get one out of the infield. They do throw so you CAN hit it in BP right? Yikes, what a sinking feeling I got. If he comes back he's going to have to do better at the plate than what I saw him do.

Another AAAA player, like Danny Garcia. One good year in the minors and everyone thought he would be the next Wally Backman. He didn't hit much in the minors for the Tigers and just because he did in Norfolk didn't convince me he could do it in the majors. In limited exposure he hasn't hit a lick. Even Jeff Duncan had a hot couple of weeks. I don't see this guy ever filling a significant role for the Mets.

The jury is still out on this kid. He's a vacuum cleaner at second! Plays wonderful defense! But from what we've seen of him at the plate in the bigs, he couldn't get good wood on a beachball. I'm hoping he comes around though. He and Reyes are good friends off the field and they'd make a great doubleplay combo for years to come.

A previous post says the jury is still out on Hernandez. Well, if I were on the jury, I'd vote to forget about him. He obviously can't hit major league pitching; I don't know if he could even hit slow- pitch softball. Last year he was 1 for 18 (.056) and as of Sept. 16 he's batting .113, giving him a career batting average of .098. After 71 career at-bats (which is what Hernandez has), has any Met--or any non-pitcher major leaguer--ever hit worse?

Is on pace to break Pete Rose's hit record in September of 2351.

Do you know how sad it is that Anderson ended up being one of the few bright spots of 2009 after we reacquired him?

Oh well. He finally appeared to learn how to hit a little (2 whole home runs...WOW) and should be a fine utility infielder backup with Cora in 2010. Hopefully we won't see him too much because we get 154 games from Reyes but the Mets could do a whole lot worse than this steady glove man as a backup.

The Japanese pro-team Chunichi Dragons signed Anderson Hernandez for 2014 season. He will wear uniform number "00".
