Very impressive so far; has a lot of poise, and no fear of pitching inside or with guys on base.

Rick Reed clone won't win 20 games but will win 12 to 15 who will keep the team in all the games he starts.

Brian's been as impressive with the bat as he has pitching maybe more so. I hope his hamstring injury doesn't keep him out long.

When he made his debut, they were interviewing his father, Floyd Bannister who was wearing a Mets cap. I was upset 'coz I would've liked to have seen his father wearing a Mets cap 25 years earlier.

Where was he most of 06? Injured in SF running the bases and out till late season. Couldn't pitch for his life. Then traded for some other no name from the lousy KC Royals, Ambriox Burgos. Good riddance.

I wouldn't say that Bannister couldn't pitch. As a matter of fact, I do not remember a bad outing, although he might have had one. My lingering memory of him was his grotesque hobble to home plate after he suffered his season-ending injury.

Too bad he got hurt last year. He's pitched fairly well for KC this year, much better than Ambroix Burgos.

The trade of Bannister for Burgos is the only one I could smack Minaya for. Burgos turned out just hurt and more hurt, and Bannister is just about the anchor of the Royals' staff, not pitching too badly either. Oh well, what are we to do?

Have not heard too many complaints lately on the radio about trading Bannister? Could it be because he has become the batting practice pitcher he appeared to be when he was here? The few times he pitched here, batters were hitting rockets but they were right at someone, that is why the Mets ditched him.

Why did the Mets give up on Brian and keep those two morons Maine and Perez? Look what he's doing in Kansas City these days. I wish that the Royals were playing the Mets in 2010 so BB can come back and bite Minaya and the Wilpons in the you know where. Watching Bannister pitch is like watching Judge Jeanine Pirro and Jill Nicolini soak in a jacuzzi; watching Mr. Malcontent #33 and the Ultimate batting practice pitcher #46 on the mound is like looking at the creepy ugly old SEAHAG from the Popeye cartoons.

The one question that still puzzles me to this day is why did the Mets trade Brian Bannister? He did good in '06 before his season ender and then we trade him for a no name in Burgos. Now Bannister is in Japan and the Mets need pitching. How's that deal looking now, Minaya?

The Mets liked the arm of Burgos, who had been closing for the Royals.

I didn't like the trade, but I don't see how "now Bannister's in Japan" speaks poorly of the Mets. More important is that Burgos turned out to be (a) injured, (b) a domestic assaulter, (c) a hit-and-run killer, (d) a kidnapper, and (e) a would-be murderer.
