A pair of Chicago Cubs centerfielders, Jimmy Qualls (1969) and Joe Wallis (1975), stole two of Tom Seaver’s early bids for a no-hitter. One year after being traded from New York to Cincinnati, Seaver threw a no-hitter for the Reds. Nolan Ryan never pitched a no-hitter – as a New York Met – but after being traded to the California Angels in 1971 he nudged Mets fans every couple years, throwing seven no-hitters. “Every time […]
You can learn a lot about a baseball team from its locker room. The clubhouse is where relationships form, character is revealed and leaders speak out (or not). For the major league rookie, clubhouse real estate is valuable — sometimes priceless. Imagine being the rookie who spent eight months out of the year next to Sandy Koufax? Roberto Clemente? Lou Gehrig? Tom Seaver? These were model athletes, wise and humble men, who used their talent […]
Miraculous as Game 6 of the 1986 World Series was, all it did was force a seventh and deciding game. Do you remember seeing the replay of Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk waving for the ball to stay fair in the 1975 World Series? That home run gave the Red Sox a thrilling 12-inning victory over the Cincinnati Reds in Game 6. That’s right. It happened in Game 6. Just like the Mets’ dramatic Game […]
The New York Mets have not given fans many reasons to watch them play this year. There have been moments where the team has looked great, but for the most part, the Mets have been a disappointment this season. As football season approaches, many fans may find no reasons to continue to follow the Mets. However, there are a number of reasons why fans should continue to keep up with the Mets into September. 1) […]
We live in interesting times where we tend to take so much for granted. We always seem to want what we don’t have whether we have a pressing need for it or not. Most of us are lucky enough to come home, kick off our shoes, hug the kids, put on one of our 1000 channels, surf the web, have a bluetooth conversation on the smartphone that we hardly ever surf the web with all […]
In a candid interview with former Mets pitcher and current broadcaster Ron Darling, Stuart Miller of the NY Times asked him a couple of questions on the state of the Mets. Q. What happened to the Mets this year? In June they were 11 games up [over .500] and they were so good to watch. The fans were really enjoying the team. And then it went away. I don’t quite know why. So this year […]
Along with SNY analyst Bobby Ojeda. fellow former 1986-’er Darryl Strawberry is calling out the team for not only leadership issues (or lack thereof) but for not putting “fear” into their opponents. “They laugh at these Mets,” says Strawberry. While I agree with him to a certain extent, he has to understand, as well as many of us who came of age in the hey-day ’80s Mets teams (myself included), that the dynamic of baseball […]
My Baseball Wish… If Bud Selig ever leaves his job as Commissioner of Major League Baseball, I wish that the powers that are behind that throne would send out a contract to Ron Darling offering him the job. A bit of history about Ron – born in Honolulu, Hawaii to a French Canadian Father and a Hawaiian Chinese Mother – he was raised in Massachusetts, is the eldest of four brothers and studied at Yale […]
