DOC – A Memoir I finally got a chance to read Doc: A Memoir by Dwight Gooden and it took all of a day and a half last weekend. I really didn’t know what to expect when I got my copy, but I put aside any preconceptions and opened up my book on Saturday night… With a blank slate and an open mind I started off… By the end of the third chapter Doc had […]
Mark Simon of ESPN New York had a great post on Sunday in which he ranked the Top 11 memorable Mets debuts over the team’s history. He included both pitching and hitting debuts. Check out his work and research here. (This is great for some of you younger Mets fans) I pulled the pitchers out of his list to see where Zack Wheeler might rank on this list. Here are the top five. Dick Rusteck (June […]
DOC A Memoir By Dwight Gooden and Ellis Henican In the mid 1980’s no pitcher was more feared and more dominant than the Mets young superstar, Dwight “Doc” Gooden. Gooden arrived in New York in 1984 as a shy nineteen year old from Tampa and became a pitching sensation overnight, Times Square even held an 105 foot mural of Doc on the mound. His first season he was named Rookie of the year; his second, […]
Marc Raimondi of the NY Post writes about Dwight Gooden who has a soon to be released biography entitled, “Doc: A Memoir.” The bio reveals some shocking and even sad details about his life in baseball and the toll that drug addiction took on his career and his life. Gooden believes if he had died the moment the Mets won the World Series in 1986, he would have saved many people a great deal of […]
On this week 21 years ago, Anthony Young started a streak he wished he hadn’t… Don’t, OK? Save your breath – and Anthony Young’s time. Just get to the question. That’s right, the question; the inevitable query about losing. He won’t mind answering because, well, the reply is always the same. “I pitched well during the stretch. It just happened. I don’t feel like I deserve it. I will be known for this forever. It was destiny.” […]
While approaching Citi Field last night one couldn’t help but notice the monstrous digital image of Matt Harvey on a video board outside the stadium with the screaming caption, “Harvey-licious.’’ When logging onto the Mets’ website there was an advertisement plugging Harvey T-Shirts. And, all of this is for a guy who was starting just his 15th major league game. I am waiting for the Mets to put him on a banner outside the stadium, joining the likes […]
It’s now been over seven years since that promising Opening Day in 2006, which was only day one of a season that took the Mets just a big swing away from the National League Championship trophy, and a visit to the World Series. With the exception of a few R.A. Dickey masterpieces, and a special no-hitter, there hasn’t been much cheering in Flushing since that magical run in 2006. The Metropolitans are a team that has always been […]
Since being promoted to the big leagues on July 26, 2012, Matt Harvey has lived up to, and at times, exceeded expectations. The former first round draft pick has become one of the toughest pitchers to hit in the National League since his debut and his confidence is on par with that of a veteran pitcher – a pitcher such as Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Dwight Gooden, to name a few. With that in […]
Everytime I watch Matt Harvey pitch, those words come to mind and it’s not just me. It’s become the Mets Meme on Twitter every time Harvey pitches. It’s brought up mockingly when you’re watching the game with other fans. Who knows, maybe those words give Matt Harvey a little extra motivation to prove SNY’s Matthew Cerrone wrong when he wrote back on March 8, “My bet is Harvey never wins a Cy Young.” I take a little […]
