Wonderful start to X's career. 4-4 with two doubles will quickly make you a fan fave. If his first start for the Mets is a preview for what he can bring a team, it's no wonder so many San Diego fans were sad to see him go. I honestly see him as a hot/cold, Richard Hidalgo type. He will hit a ton, but only in bunches, and go graveyard cold when he's not on. Here's wishing Mr. Nady great luck with the Mets.

Nice start to the season for this website's current least-popular player in Mets history. Hopefully, he will have more games like this and show us some of the power that they were talking about all spring.

He's hitting a ton right now, and I hate to be pesamistic but I'm a long time Met fan since 1977, and like a dog who has been hit with the newspaper one too many times I always have a feeling the other shoe will drop- I just hope he doesn't turn into Derek Bell in the 2000 season. Bell was hitting close to .360 for a while then all of a sudden his average dropped like a rock. Let's hope he stays consistent with the bat. I'm not expecting him to hit like this all season, but if he can hit .300 or a little below it it would be really nice.

Always had the talent never given the chance to be an every day player. Nady has shown some nice power but is a bit inconsistent.

I'm taking a big risk writing about this guy, as I don't want to jinx him like I have many others in the past however, I was against the trade since Nady's stats with the Padres weren't all that great, despite the fact that I wasn't a real big Cameron fan. I just felt like we were dumping Cameron's salary for another 4th outfielder. But... let's just say he's young, was a good college player, and has shown that he could be a great trade. But can he play every day? So far so good but how will he hit in August and September. I love him now, but will I love him in September?

He is hitting but not so much in the clutch. He can't seem to get a hit with runners in scoring position where he is htting under .200. Still, I think he's a good player but I need to see him come up big when it's late and tight. If he can improve there he'll be a big time player. If.

I feel bad for Nady. He goes from the best team in the league to the worst all because of an injury to our best relief pitcher. He's gotta be hating this trade.

X-Man, you sure helped the Mets attain first place in early 2006. Thanks.

I went to one of his last games as a Met. It was against Houston and he hit a home run to give the Mets the lead. I am a HUGE Xavier Nady fan so I was cheering really loudly. I love him so much!

It's amazing how often I hear people on the FAN bring up his name or I see comments on a blog about getting him back. He was and still is pretty popular for a guy who was only here for half a season.

Oh how I wish we didn't give up on X Man in 2006. I realize we got Perez in this deal as a "throw in" but I would rather see Nady in right than Ryan Church any day. Maye we can sign him as a Free agent?

It amazes me how this guy became an instant Mets legend the minute he left NY. I'm glad trade talks for this guy are finally over. Whoever praises this guy has probably never seen him play. He stinks! He hit .266 for the Mets over half a season. How does he does he ever get all this attention? Fans just seem to like him because hes about the only guy in the franchise to have a name that starts with an X.

He's not even fan friendly. When my son was 5, we met him in the Shea Stadium parking lot. My son asked for his autograph and he totally ignored him and sipped his iced coffee like he hadn't heard a thing. I met him again earlier this year while he was still in Pittsburgh. I saw him sitting on a bench outside on the right field side of PNC Park. He was just wasting time playing a game on his cellphone and many Pirates fans approached him and he totally ignored all their requests. It was the rudest thing I've seen in my life. He's a great fit for the evil Yankees pinstripes.

Like many of you, I thought Xavier Nady was terrific as a Met, and sadly, things began to slowly fall apart after we were forced to deal him to Pittsburgh. But come on, Mets fans, enough with the "bring back Nady" pleas for 2010. Xavier Nady is not going to sign with the Mets to be a bench player. The fact is, when healthy, Bay, Beltran and Frenchy all are everyday players. And our first baseman this year will be either Murph or Delgado. Nady did very well for half a season in 06, but with the Bay signing there is no room for him in Flushing. Why do we always comment on bringing back players who we view as "good ol' days" saviors, like Nady and, gasp, the irreplaceable Ruben Gotay. It was unthinkable to cut Gotay after 2007, wasn't it, and many fans screamed bloody murder. He sure has distinguished himself since then, hasn't he?

Xavier Nady is such an amazing player that he actually hit the most home runs of any MLB player with a first name starting with "X." Can there be a greater accomplishment?
