Tom Seaver, The Greatest Mets Player Ever, Passes Away At 75

2 Sep

I can still remember how excited I was when the Mets got Seaver back in 1983 and how weird it was to see him in the dugout during the ’86 World Series as a Red Sox. 3 Cy Young’s, a World Series ring, a no-hitter, 300-plus wins, lifetime ERA less than 3.00, Mets and Yankees broadcaster, a successful career after baseball with his vineyard in California and beloved by family, friends and of course Mets fans like me. He earned his Franchise nickname. RIP to the greatest Met ever.

Yoenis Cespedes Opts Out Of 2020 Season…Cites Coronavirus

2 Aug

Of course, the way he handled this, going M.I.A. on the team was bad. But I’m not sure that he’s telling the truth about Coronavirus being the reason for opting out. I think his poor start, but moreso his wanting to play the outfield are why he really quit on the team. Anyway, whatever happens next with Cespedes, I’m sure he’ll bounce back with an MVP-like season because we’re talking about the Mets here.
