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
