Rey and Jesse

Reynaldo Ordonez Pereira never played for the Padres but was such a big name at the time that he got a card in 2004.  He was beaten out in spring training for the shortstop job by Khalil Greene, who went on to disappear from baseball.  Rey played 7 years with the Mets, 1 year with the Rays and Cubs.  I bought the card on ebay.  Jesse Russell Orosco played 24 seasons in the majors, a third of those years with the Mets.  Jesse pitched in 42 games for the Padres, one of the three teams he played for in 2003, his final season in the majors.  He also played that year for the Yankees and Twins.  I got this signed through the mail.
