Share your memories of Jose Vizcaino


I'm pretty sure we got Vizcaino for Anthony Young, which makes it one of the more lopsided trades in the '90s for the Mets. Not quite Ron Darling and Walt Terrell for Lee Mazzilli, but not bad.

Bring Jose Vizcaino back he bats better than Ordonez and plays the SS position just as well. (we don't need all that jazz)

Was an excellent player who could play second, short, or third, was a switch-hitter and team player who hit for power & average. So the Mets trade him to bring up ordonez who plays only one position, is a crybaby, and still can not hit. Another one of the Mets many bonehead moves.

I remember he was drilled in the knee by Steve Avery for supposedly showing up the Braves somehow (I can't remember how but I don't think he did - he wasn't (isn't) that kind of player). Anyway, he was out for a couple of weeks as a result, but it seemed the rest of the team didn't really come to his defense, which was kind of sad but unfortunately seemed to epitomize the teams of the mid-90's.

I always liked Jose. He was a decent, although not outstanding player. A good guy to have but not the type of everyday player you want if you are building a winning ballclub unless you have a ton of other studs. I hated seeing him win a ring with the Scumbags. Always loved his goggles. Jose raised his arms while on 2nd base after someone else hit a homer off of Avery. Next time up Avery plunked him. God forbid you show alittle excitement on the field. That baby Avery totally over reacted and I've hated him ever since.

Vizciano and Strawberry were the only two players ever to play for the Mets,Yankees,Dodgers,and Giants.

Best offensive shortstop in team history. Since Hojo was really a 3rd baseman, Jose gets the nod as best SS to swing the bat. That's sad. Thank God for Jose Reyes.

Boy, did it hurt to see Vizcaino get that Subway Series, Game 1-winning hit off Turk Wendell. It hurts even more to watch the official MLB video of that World Series (Mets fans: watch at own risk) and see Jose referred to by the narrator as a new Yankee legend. At times, I do wonder whether Ordonez was that much of an upgrade over Vizcaino. He may not have been an upgrade in any way. But, of course, hindsight is always 20-20. Which begs the following question: were any of you really surprised when "Kent and Vizcaino for Baerga and Espinosa" turned out to be but another misguided Mets deal?

I'm sure he is a nice guy but I cannot stand him since that game winning single in game 1 of the 2000 WS. Plus I think he got another ring with the annoying Cards of 2006.
