Raul Casanova

Raul Casanova hit his first home run for the team that drafted him 12 years after he was drafted. He was drafted by the Mets in the 8th round in 1996. In December of 1992 he was traded to the Padres with D.J. Dozier and Wally Whitehurst for Tony Fernandez and a player to be named later. In 1996 he was traded by the Padres with Richie Lewis and Melvin Nieves for Cade Gaspar (whose father played for the Padres in the '70's), Sean Bergman and Todd Stevenson. Over the next few years he signed as free agent with the Orioles (two or three times), Rockies, Brewers, Rays, Red Sox, White Sox, A's and got traded to the Royals and finally signed as a free agent with the Mets in December 2007. On April of 2008 he hit his first homerun for the Mets. I got this card through ebay.

Hello! I have been reading your blog over the last few weeks, but have not been able to leave you a message. I was wondering if you would be interested in making some trades. I collect cards of the Indians and would be happy to send you some of the Padres. Plus I also collect the 1986 Topps set and was wondering if you want to help each other with want lists for that set. Drop me a line at, and subject it Trade for Indians or something on that line. Hope to hear from you. Tim
