800th player ever to play for the Mets. Got the first hit of the season for the Mets on the first pitch he saw. Nice way to start off, Nice diving catch in the 6th inning too. Hopefully, he'll have a good year for a 40 year old.

This is a good pick-up by the Mets. Hopefully 20 homers and a .300 average will follow him this season. Just please tell me the rumors of him urinating on his hands is false, or I'll be happy to buy him some batting gloves.

Moises Alou 1972 baseball card
When the Mets picked up Alou, I had my doubts about signing a 40-year-old player (he turns 41 July 3) who has often been injured. Yes, he's had a fine career and he got off to a great start this year with the Mets, but now he's hurt again. It seems that it's only a matter of time before he's placed on the DL. If and when he is, it will be the 15th time in his 16- year career (and that, of course, includes his rookie year, when he only appeared in 16 games) that he's been on the DL. One has to wonder about the wisdom of taking a chance on him and whether the Mets should have signed someone else. I hope I'm wrong, but acquiring Alou may prove to be a costly and big mistake.

I didn't quite understand replacing one often injured player (Cliff Floyd) with another (Moises Alou). But I am glad the Mets picked him up. When he's healthy he's a devastating bat in the middle of the lineup. When he's injured he'll give Endy Chavez a chance to shine. Way to go.

Would be nice if this guy ever decides to come back from his injury- maybe by August.

Mr rally killer. He hit into consecutive key double plays against Washington and the Brewers. Hey, Moises, it's ok to bunt!

A terrific pure hitter that rakes lefties, but can't stay healthy ever. Alou's missed 4 years worth of games. He might be a borderline Hall of Famer if not for all of his injuries.

The guy that makes the offense run has been the best hitter in baseball the last 3 weeks as long as he's healthy he's a huge impact player.

Currently riding a 19-game hitting streak. He's still getting it done at an advanced age.

It was such a pleasure watching him when he played. Too bad he didn't crack the 100 game mark. I would love to see him back next year.

October 18, 2007
It says something about our offensive attack when our leading hitter is an injury plagued 41 year old. A remarkable season from a stand up guy who would be a HOF candidate if not so banged up during his entire career.

Felipe, Jesus, Mateo, Moises, they are like the Neville Brothers of cool music. Can't wait for Moises Jr or Jesus the third!

You guys may think I'm crazy, but I think Alou's latest setback is going to help him and the Mets in the long run.

Given his age, it is more likely he will produce much better in limited action as opposed to playing the entire season. That's why he was so good last season. He was out a couple of months with that pulled hamstring, yet when he returned he was a house on fire. Hopefully, the extra amount of "rest" recovering from hernia surgery will benefit his numbers as well as the Mets' fortunes this year.

Believe me, I'll take a fresh, but limited Alou hitting .327 in 120-135 games than an everyday Alou who might wear down by September to .269 in 155 games.

Retire already please! He WAS a great player. He had a great hitting streak last year, but we have NO left fielder. This guy can get hurt in a stiff wind. It was a big mistake signing him to a second year. A healthy Alou would have been great but you can't count on him to give you anything. Signing him meant we gave up on anyone else for left field and Marlon Anderson/ Fernando Tatis just can't cut it.

A great talent, but if this guy was a horse he would've been taken to the glue factory long ago.

The guy just pulled a hammy in a rehab game while on the DL for something else. He didn't even make 5 innings back last his last time on the roster before getting hurt again. He's the only guy I know who gets injuries while still on the DL. Grandpa Alou should retire already and give back the money he's making this year.

Ya know, if he had stayed healthy all these years, you're talking about a potential Cooperstown induction. Also, I recall when he was with the Expos that gruesome ankle injury he suffered running on that $%#@*& astroturf in St. Louis. OUCH!!! He's also remembered for the Steve Bartman incident but Moises was recently mentioned in something else: The TV Guide Crossword Puzzle! In the November 10, 2008 issue (Christina Applegate on the cover) if you look at 5 down it says Baseball player Moises and the answer is A-L-O-U.

I was always hesitant to clap for Moises when he got a hit because I was afraid the breeze from my applause would fracture his leg.

He had such an unorthodox way of standing at the plate the way his front leg was twisted. It looked painful.

Quote by Moises Alou after the Mets collapse in 2007 - "I hate baseball right now." We all did then.

I remember him for his deep speaking voice and for his almost always being injured during his brief stay with the Mets. Baseball will remember him for his having the ball taken away from him by Mr. Bartman.
