Talk to Butch's Hand . . .

. . . Because he isn't listening.

In 1996 I thought Butch Huskey had a future with the Mets. At age 24, he finished his first full year with the Mets and hammered 15 home runs. After his second full year in 1997 he hit. 287 with 24 home runs. It seemed Butch was ready for a break-out year, but it never happened.

In 1998 Butch's average dropped 30 points and he was traded to Seattle in the off-season. He bounced around in the A.L. for a few seasons before leaving the game after the 2000 season.

This is Butch's 1997 (I think) Donruss card.
