HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Great pick-up for the post season run. We needed a "real" LH power DH for a possible World Series, and that means if we play in the Bronx for the title. Floyd or Green can both hit the "pennant porch" off these NY pitchers. In 2000 we had Darryl Hamilton as a DH. (yawn)

I could shake my head in the utter disappontment in acquiring Green. He is long past his prime. He has been awful for the Mets except for a DH against the Braves. I can't believe I would wish that the Mets still had Xavier Nady.

This is a great pick-up for the Mets. We need his bat and his glove for the playoffs. Would you rather have Rickee or Lasting this October in the outfield?? He proved himself against the Dodgers.

How many ways can you say over the hill? It was a waste of time to get him for 2006, and I sure hope he's gone before 2007.

The guy played on each of the High Holy Days, even Yom Kippur. Not good form for a Jewish ballplayer.

I liked this guy when they traded for him. He had a great attitude and wanted to be part of the Mets. He was pretty decent in the playoffs as well. I couldn't understand those who were rooting against him to be on the team in 2007. I know everyone wants to see Milledge but there is something to be said about a veteran presence in the line up and Green has had a decent career. His spring training was dreadful but he has been pretty damn good in the first 5 weeks of the season. Hopefully he can keep it going and at the end of the day be an important part of the Mets 3rd world series title. I hope I have not just jinxed him and the team.

I was concerned about the corner OF positions early on. Broken foot may linger as season wears on. It's a shame because his bat looks a lot livelier than last year. We may need to pick up some veteran depth in the OF.

Green is no more than adequate, at best, and it's time to get someone else in right field. I didn't think he should have been part of the team this year, and I sure hope he's gone by the time 2008 starts.

How does your starting right fielder have only 30 RBIs while batting .270 in 333 ABs? Talk about a light .270!! That's a respectable average with practically zero run production. Not good.

I don't know why this guy is so maligned - anti- semitism perhaps? He is tearing up right handed pitching and is doing great down the stretch.

Interestingly, in 2007 the Mets have three Jewish players - Green, Schoenweis and Newhan (though the last claims to be Christian too, go figure!) Has any major league team ever had more than one Jewish player before?

My daughter's first baseball game was also Shawn Green's first apopearance with the Mets - we sat in right field and cheered him on.

Dan- The Giants had 5 Jewish players at one time or another during the 1946 season and in 2005 the Red Sox had 3 Jews (Youkilis, Kapler and Stern) on the field at the same time. Green has always been one of my favorite players and I'm glad to see he can still contribute while Milledge matures.

Can we consider 49 RBI's as a contribution?

The weakest .290 you'll ever see...
