Television offers Met fans two reasons to live for one more day.
Tonight at 8:00pm eastern time, the MLB Network is broadcasting Baseball’s Seasons:Â 1986.Â ” The Year of the Debut: Greg Maddux, Barry Bonds, Will Clark, Bo Jackson, Barry Larkin, Jamie Moyer and Fred McGriff started their careers. Red Sox and Mets wage historic World Series battle.” Trust me, it ends well.
Tonight at 9:30pm eastern time, SNY is broadcasting Mets Yearbook:Â 1971. It doesn’t end quite as well as 1986 (83-79, 3rd place) but is definitely worth watching to catch glimpses of things like manager Gil Hodges’ last year at the Mets’ helm, Tom Seaver winning 20 games while throwing 286 innings, giving up only 210 hits and striking out 289 batters, Tim McGraw’s dad Tug throwing 105 innings of relief en route to winning 11 games, and Ed Kranepool, Tommie Agee and Cleon Jones tying for the team lead in home runs with 14.
So buck up Mets fans, and remember, holding on for one more day is extreme!
