Q&A w/ Keith Hernandez

Postby bigh0rt » Tue Jun 26, 2007 11:43 am

Q: Who do you think was the best second baseman in Mets history?

A: I would have to say Edgardo Alfonzo even though he was a shooting star who fizzled out fairly quickly. I don’t think any Mets second baseman had the years that he had.

Q: Why do so many players fail to run through the first base bag and normally pull up when grounding out to infielders? I always felt that if the infield knew you hustled at ALL times they may rush a throw and you may get the base just for hustling.

A: You are correct. We are seeing more of this as the years pass. It is pretty glaring now. It started in my day and has deteriorated every since. Jose Reyes runs almost everything out and it is nice to see.

Q: Will there be any acknowledgment or recognition of William Shea in the new stadium?

A: I sure hope so. After all, he did bring National League baseball back to NYC. Today people have very short memories and history is not emphasized enough in school anymore.

I don't mind the name change but I'm disappointed that they have not announced how (or if) Shea will be honored at the new stadium. How can you have a Jackie Robinson rotunda but no Shea memorial. Not to diminish what J.R. did but his connection to the Mets is minimal while Shea is an integral part of the team's history and New York's baseball history. :t
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
