Where Have You Gone, Benny Agbayani

Glorious June of 2000, a New ly acquired New York Met named Benny Agbayani (30th round draft pick), a Fil-Am from Hawai'i made omeruns in five consecutive games.
But I think his shining moment was the National League Division Series. Benny Agbayani's home run in the 13th inning gave the Mets a 3-2 victory over the Giants in the NLDS, allowing New York to take a 2-1 lead in that series. For the Mets, it marked the fifth consecutive postseason victory attained in their last at-bat.
Then during the Subway Series against the New Tork Yankees, he almost made his team win wiht his bat. He eventually got his own theme song at the Met's Shea Stadium. "Benny and the Mets" from "Benny and the Jets" by Elton John.
So where have you gone, Benny and the Mets. The nation turns its lonely eyes to you. Hu hu hu. Then it was downhill since then. He was traded to the Rockies and then became a viajero (e used this term somewhere in an interview) in the J-League (with the Chiba Lotte Marines, I think) in Japan. This hurts.
