And with that said… HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today includes:
Original Mets coach, Red Kress would have been 106 today (1907). Kress died suddenly of a heart ailment two months after the Mets inaugural season.
One of the best pitchers in Mets history, David Cone is 50 today (1963). In 7 seasons with the Mets Cone compiled a record of 81-51 with an E.R.A of 3.13.
The New York Mets signed free agent starting pitcher, Mike Birkbeck on January 2, 1992.
The Boston Red Sox signed starting pitcher, Frank Viola of the New York Mets as a free agent on January 2, 1992. Viola had a uneven career with the Mets and it wasn’t surprising that he left the franchise once his contract expired.
The Chicago White Sox signed middle reliever, Barry Jones of the New York Mets as a free agent on January 2, 1993.
Mo Vaughn wishes he was up for a Mazzy !!!
