3 games against the Yankees, 3 scoreless innings. I dunno how long this guy'll be around, but I wish him the best. He seems pretty cool under pressure, and he's from Fresno, like another Met pitcher who shall remain nameless...

Well, you can tell he will make it because whenever Bobby V- needs a pitcher Jamie Cerda is who he puts in. Also, did I mention he comes right at batters and overpowers them.

Here I was hoping beyond hope that Armando Benitez would get a decision when Cerda comes along and quietly gets into the Met record books with the most games pitched without earning a decision. So much for Don Rowe!

Anyway, Cerda is raw but has good stuff. He would've earned his first career win in the first game of the doubleheader against the D-Backs on 3 August had Benitez not served up a fat one to Counsell. I guess we have to give an assist to Armando for helping Cerda break one of the most unusual and longest-standing marks in club history.

Don Rowe, Grover Powell, Dennis Musgraves, Darrell Sutherland, and the rest of the crew aside, I actually think this guy's gonna work out! With a 2.45 ERA, what can go wrong (hope I didn't jinx him with that).

Quietly blew away the minors to the tune of a collective 1.35 ERA, and was generally effective in his first stint as a Met in 2002.

Made his debut in Yankee Stadium facing Robin Ventura - known for hitting several career grand slams - with the bases loaded and nobody out, and got him to hit a sac fly to center before getting out of the inning with no further damage. Now that's a good first impression.

I really liked him last year but has been horrible so far this year. He deserved to be demoted when he was and I think they brought him back too soon as evidenced by his getting the loss the other night in Colorado where all he needed to do was get one out. Instead, he let the inherited run score and tie the game and then gave up the winning run before getting that one out. His 9.90 ERA is a joke. I think "Hymie" has the talent but right now he's not doing the job and needs to work on it in Norfolk.

Jaime is very unusual. There are times he's unstoppable and is almost as automatic as Mariano Rivera was in the late 90's. And there are times he gets lit up like a Christmas Tree. He'd better do well in 2004 or he may not be in the majors much less the Mets. Off the field, he's really nice. After a game in Montreal he signed autographs for about 10 minutes and talked baseball with us fans who went up there for the game. On a lighter note after a game in Philly he too was signing for all us Mets fans and it was me and 2 little girls and he went up to one of them and asked, "How are you doing sweetheart?" I said, "I'm doing 0K." He looked at me like I was from another planet, then I realized he was talking to them. Boy did I feel stupid. I hope Jaime makes hitters feel stupid in 2004.

They traded him to accomdate Franco who has been stealing money from the Mets for years. Meanwhile Cerda had a plenty solid year with the Royals getting lefties out.
