Matsui.

I voted Floyd.

But I hope it's Beltran. (Interesting that he wasn't even a choice in the poll.) It would be good for him, and the Mets, if he had an insane hot streak like he did last October.

I reckon Piazza. He's gonna hit a hot streak at some stage.

Floyd's done it before, Cameron hurt, Daubach an ignis fatuus, Wright maybe, but not quite. That leaves Mike.

I didn't list Beltran because I was kinda hoping that someone will get hot before his injury heals. It seems to be taking a long time for that to happen.

What duan said - Piazza's due for a hot streak.

You realize of course that everyone retires "due for a hot streak."

Sometimes for years, due.

Man y'all are a bunch of Piazza fanboi kiss-up's!

OE: Hee-hee, Bret said it better than I.

He had a hot streak the first week of May this season. I think he has at least a couple more of those left in the tank.

It's kinda sad, don't you think, that now that's a hot streak to you?

I mean, the old Piazza would have put together about six of those weeks in a row, and everybody would have been all "Damn, I was hoping for a few more weeks at least," when it was over.

I can't remember his last home run.

I also voted for Piazza, because he can't be this bad forever. I see your point, Irish: when YSG asked us to go back and vote on those Schaefer games, I saw Piazza's two home run game in Milwaukee and thought "when the heck did that happen?" I didn't remember it at all. Sad.

He hasn't homered since May 9. Ugly.

Wright, but not until he starts batting higher than 6th on a regular basis.

Piazza isn't "due" for anything but retirement. he's washed up and done.

Daubach has two walks in 3 PAs today, very encouraging.

Wright is the man but you don't carry ateam batting 7th every day...Willie is a fool.

Floyd already did carry the team, its someone else's turn.

Cliff has already demonstrated that he can still dominate and carry this team. With Cameron and Beltran ailing, then it has to be Floyd and Wright that step forward to carry the offense until the outfield is healthy again. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt that Piazza has a hot streak that extends beyond 4 or 5 games left in him at this point in his career.

I voted for Cliff.

I'd vote for Matsui but he may be hurt... again.

I'm in denial and pretending that Beltran's all better.

Usually much stronger in the 2nd half.

I would have voted Beltran, or "no one".

Nobody voted Cammy. I think he was our PotM for June, no?
