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.
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
The wounds never healed. 1977 Still Hurts! And so, I made that my brick at Citi Field.
Part of me has never forgiven them for this mortal sin.
right? imagine that drama in today’s media. people lost their minds over Dickey
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.
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.
