Mets deal stars…June 15, 1977

Mets fans, this is as low as it gets.

They can lose 110 games, move to Mercury, charge $63 for Opening Day….nothing compares.

If you are of a certain age you can’t think of June 15th ever without thinking of how this felt.

  1. The inconceivable.

    As a response, I’d like to point out that losing Seaver was tough, but having Johann Santana is a good tonic. The Mets are lucky he selected them. All this talk of it being a bum deal is utter hogwash. He’s the best Mets pitcher since Seaver.

  2. mdg…the midnight massacre…a day that will live in infamy

    i remember it well, and i remember my dad being particularly distraught the next day…caused a lot of kids (i was 11 at the time) to become yankee fans

    probably ranks as the lowest point in met history; i think attendance in grant’s tomb dipped below 10K because of that

    /trade reyes now

  3. I actually gave up the Mets for a few years and rooted solely for the Reds after they did this. Fuck Donald Grant. Still. Fuck him.

  4. I remember coming into work and commiserating with a fellow Mets fan of the trade of Tom Seaver, thanks primarily to the behind-the-scenes antics of then-GM M. Donald Grant. And for him to go on and pitch his first (and only) no-hitter with Cincinnati was a double blow. Seaver never did look good in red.
