Hey there might be two more games against the Huston Astros until the 2009 Mets season is sent to the coroners office for autopsy, But it was nice to see with John Maine pitching a solid game and Daniel Murphy’s moon shot last night that there is at least some warmth left to this corpse! And now on to the Infamy !
Birthday wishes go out to middle relief pitcher from the ’67 team -Jack Lamabe (1936)
Starting pitcher from the putrid ’75 team Randy “Polanski” Tate is 57 (1952) It is funny , I noticed that even though both pitchers had horrible won/ loss records , their E.R.A.S were only in the mid threes. I guess it proved there were a hell of a lot of low scoring games back then.
New York Mets released pitcher Hal Reniff on October 3, 1967.
New York Mets released relief pitcher Manny “Raging Bull” Hernandez on October 3, 1989.
