I was about to disagree with you...then I saw Payton's H/A splits. He was better at home, yes, but his HR total was actually more away. 25-30 HR with a .280 is not out of the question.

Also, he better play a ton of Day games... in about 56 day games, he hit 15 HR and 50 RBI. In 101 Night games, he hit 13 HR and 39 RBI.

Jay actually hit more HR away than at home. RBI is all dependent on how the rest of his team is/gets on base. I think 25-30 HR is not out of the question.

I didn't say I wanted him back. I'm just saying he was a capable hitter. At .280 even away from Coors, that's a pretty dependable guy.

And he's got the tools. He was easily the best hitter on that GA Tech team that featured him, Nomar, and Veratek.

Easily.

Easily.


that was over 10 years ago :-? I think we can conclude that he is no Nomah' or Varitek. What is Payton now .. 32 -- 33 ???

Fair enough. I wasn't saying that he's better than either now, only that he does have some latent talents that he never seemed to tap into at Shea.

You sure spend a lot of time in the Mets forum.
