Shortstop Rey Ordonez is traded to Tampa Bay for two minor league prospects. Ordonez had a love-hate relationship with Mets’ fans. He once called them stupid. Not a nice thing to say.

I remember this guy was slick with the glove, but I didn’t cover him on a daily basis so I never got the chance to get to know him. For those who saw him regularly, any moments that stick out?
