This Day In Mets History

The 2006 season was wonderful for the Mets. They had their best season in recent memory on the field and the front office seemed to make all the right moves as well.  Sure, I was not a fan of the Xavier Nady trade but I did eventually move on from that.  And as it turns out, that was not the trade that influenced my fandom the most.

On August 30, 2006, the Mets traded Victor Diaz to the Texas Rangers for a minor league catcher. Yes, that minor league catcher was Mike Nickeas.  I am definitely happy that trade was made.

So, let's spend today celebrating that Mets front office that we all grew to hate. They brought Mike Nickeas to the Mets!

Let's Go Mets!
