The Mets called up Esix Snead today. Whats up with that? I seem to remember him having some speed.Is he up for a few days or are they going to give him a good look? Worth a buck faab?

They brought him up instead of Duncan in case Cameron has to go on the DL. I am not really sure why they chose Snead over Duncan but it will probably only be a 2-week stint or so. He has 8 SBs and 1 CS this year with the Tides.

don't know about exsix, but it is possible that the reason he got called up in place of duncan was some sort of 'options' situation, i.e. duncan might be running out of options.

Yeah that definitely could be it. I looked but could not find the info to tell if that was the reason. There is also the possibility of showcasing for a pending trade.

Snead is the fastest man in professional baseball. Unfortunately, he can't hit and he doesn't walk. If only he could steal first base...

Also, I don't think that the Mets can trade him. They picked him up off the scrap heap for a whole lot of nothing. What's more- they were about the only team showing interest. Maybe they called him up to pinch run.

He was picked up off of waivers in 2001. I don't totally understand all the minor league transaction rules but I would think he's tradeable by now? Maybe not. Doubt he's getting traded anyway, just wishful thinking.

Snead has speed, but that's it. Last year with the Tides (I live in Norfolk), he hit about 230, though he set the all time franchise record in SBs (like 58 or so), while leading the International League by a large margin. If the Mets had been within a sniff of the postseason last year, I bet they would have signed him to the playoff roster strictly as a pinch runner.

He really has no fantasy value yet except in NL only leagues. If, somehow, he shows the ability to hit major league pitching better than AAA (Scott Podsednik), he could have some fantasy value, because you figure if the Mets called him up because of his speed, he's going to run. I just don't see that as very likely.

I remember seeing this guy in a video game with speed of 100 rating and I'd never heard of him before. However it's hard to forget him once you hear a name like Esix Snead. :-]

Have you gotten to see him this year? He's hitting .275 in 80 ABs. Just wondering if looks any better although is OBP his still low .298.
