“Jeter should be the one,” Seaver said. “What can you say he hasn’t done? He has every credential imaginable — great player, good citizen. He plays the game properly, respects the game and his predecessors.”
Regardless of Tuesday’s result, the Scott Kazmir move most definitely backfired on the Mets. But it was hardly a unique occurrence in the annals of team history.
There’s a “Seaver entrance” on the Plaza level of Citi Field. That’s great, but how about something befitting the greatest Mets player of all time?
Recently, Boomer had been calling for the Mets to build a statue of Tom Seaver outside Citi Field. That gave Craigie an idea…
Once all the birthday pleasantries were exchanged, Tom had a great discussion about his pitching career and the differences between his era and modern-day pitching.
The BBWAA made amends for last year’s controversial shutout on Wednesday, electing a trio of players to the Hall of Fame. Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas gained election, with Craig Biggio falling just short.
Can you identify the subject of these “quotes” which refer to Hall of Famers? Be careful — a few of them are tricky.
The Mets honored former slugger Mike Piazza on Sunday during a 30-minute ceremony at Citi Field before their season finale against Milwaukee.
The Mets complete the homestand with a four-game series against the Phillies before heading to Washington this weekend. The Mets have gone 5 and 7 against both of these division rivals so far in 2013.
Harvey did something that the two previous Mets All-Star Game starting pitchers, Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden, were not able to do; win their first outing after starting a mid-summer classic.
Once Derek Jeter retires — his suddenly balky body is hastening the process — and assuming Mariano Rivera makes good on his curtain call, Harvey will have Broadway to himself.
It was a New York baseball fan’s midsummer night’s dream. Two pitchers whose presence on the mound can intimidate even the game’s great sluggers.
The veteran admitted that, even though he still has years in front of him, he’s thought about going into the Hall as a Met. “It could be, I don’t know how that works,” Beltran said. “I don’t know how you choose that. But yeah, it could happen.”
The trip started at Bryant Park on 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue, on about 80,000 square feet of red carpet, and continued past Grand Central Terminal.
Carlos Beltran, Mike Piazza, Dwight Gooden, Gary Carter, Tom Seaver and more of the Mets’ most enduring All-Stars of all time.
