Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past.

Coming off of a painful end to the 2007 season and with Paul LoDuca aging, Mets General Manager Omar Minaya made the decision to trade his former top prospect Lastings Milledge to bring in Brian Schneider and Ryan Church from the Washington Nationals.

Considered a defensive stalwart, Schneider served as the primary backstop for the Mets in their fateful last season at Shea Stadium as well as their first season at Citi Field—even scoring the Mets first run in their new ballpark.
