April 4, 2011 Probably the first major league player in history with the name of "Lung". I can see him becoming a folk hero in Flushing like George Theodore, Rusty Tillman, Turk Wendell and Ty Wiggington.
April 5, 2011 The puns using this fellow's name are already coming fast and furious. From Saturday night's game: "Hu was that guy who just scored for the Mets?" and (when he struck out) "Boo Hu!" But the best is when he plays the field:
Hu's on second? No, Hu is on first! I dont know. THIRD BASE!!!
May 12, 2011 To follow up with the bad puns: Who is the worst major league hitter you've ever seen? Yes, Hu is.
Utterly putrid in every aspect at the plate. Slow bat, bad eye, clueless approach, totally overmatched...and those are his good traits. His one crowning achievement was actually putting the ball in play for a sac fly against Washington. As of today, he has 18 at bats with one hit and 11 (ELEVEN!!!!) strikeouts. He's the most automatic out I've ever seen. He makes me yearn for the comparably great bat of Rey Rey Ordonez.
I know the Mets traded for him, and he's out of options, but they simply cannot justify keeping this garbage on the roster.
May 29, 2011 I just wish they'd play him at 1B at least one time so that the famous Abbott and Costello routine would finally make sense - "Hu's on first!"
June 29, 2011 This guy is the weakest hitter I have ever seen.
March 18, 2012 I vaguely remember his first Mets hit. I'd have paid more attention if I'd known it was going to be his last.
