10 Things to Know About Chris Carter

Like you, I've been hunting around the Net for Chris Carter stuff....the guy is quirky to say the least!

He can also hit and has power--we could see 100 at-bats for him the rest of the year as the Mets give him an extended big league look.

Here is a smattering on Carter...

  • Went to Stanford
  • He is extremely intense, quirky, and he plays very, very hard
  • .301 lifetime BA in 6 minor league seasons with 124 homeruns
  • Seen as a "major league hitter that plays weak defense"
  • 2008 International League All-Star
  • Can play 1B and corner OF
  • Made the Red Sox out of spring training as the 5th outfielder
  • Listed as 6 feet tall and 230 Lbs and doesn't allow anyone to touch his bats
  • Red Sox acquired him as a PTBNL in the Willy Mo Pena deal
  • Uses Hulk Hogan music as his theme song before each at-bat

I know CC and I have watched him play a lot of games. He is a serious upgrade over Daniel Murphy. His defense has improved tremendously over this last season and he will leave everything on the field. Mets fans are going to love this guy.

Thanks for stopping by SoxFan--that seems to be the school of thought....the guy can hit and plays hard.

Murphy has had a brutal season--brutal....we all thought he was going to display this great eye at the plate, but he hits like a back-up second baseman.
