September 15, 2006 He is now 1 for 20 in his last 20 AB's with the Mets. Which led me to do a little reasearch on this guys career stats. His career stats aren't anything to write home about either. Being a Met fan - I recall when the Yankees brought this guy up. I didn't pay much attention - but from all the fanfare - you would've thought he was gonna be another Jose Cruz. I guess things never really panned out for Ricky. Even his minor league stats were not very impressive. Looks like the sun is setting on this guy's ML career. I just hope the Mets don't carry him on their post-season roster.
September 28, 2006 What a chump. I didn't understand why the Mets picked him up, and he's done nothing at all as a Met to change my mind. Dump him.
October 1, 2006 I remember when Suzy "Georgie Girl" Waldwyn would rave about this guy. He is completely overrated. I agree to dump this guy. However, we all know why he is on the team.
February 2, 2007 The team had rooom on the roster and they looked like we could use a lefthanded pinch-hitter, perhaps with some experience.
Anyhow, the Ricky Ledee era ends today as he gets a minor-league deal with Oakland.
