Transplanted Ex-Mets Update

The Mets will not advance to the World Series this year, and neither will very many transplanted ex-Mets either.  We'll take a brief look at them right now and move on.

The most notable of the transplanted ex-Mets in the Fall Classic is Kenny Rogers.  Oh, how I would have loved to seen the Mets exact their revenge on this putz for his 1999 postseason collapse.  Now I will be hoping to see him shut down the Cardinals and remind the Yankees fans of his dominance over them in the ALDS and of course his failures in pinstripes.

Here's how The Gambler has fared in the 2006 postseason thus far:
2-0 0.00 ERA, 15 innings, 14 strikeouts, 7 hits.


Representing the National League for the transplanted ex-Mets are Braden Looper and Preston Wilson:

Thus far in the postseason, Braden Looper has compiled the distinguished stats of:
0-0, 4.26 ERA, 8 hits, 3 runs, in 6 1/3 innings over 4 appearances.

Preston Wilson, who played in 8 games for the Mets way back in 1998, has done this in the 2006 postseason:
.200 AVG (5 for 25), 2 doubles, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 5 K's.

In other transplanted ex-Mets news, Dave Magadan has found gainful employment again.  He'll join the Red Sox next season as their new hitting coach.  He was previously a member of the Padres coaching staff, but was fired back in June while the Padres bats stunk it up.
