May 8, 2017 Ah, Reyes. He fills my lungs with pure oxygen whenever I witness his magic. His catlike skills are superheroic; not even the great Spider-Man could make plays that this Dominican webslinger wields. It has been said that such celebrities as Vin Diesel, Joe Benigno, Todd Schnitt, Kylie Jenner, and Emma Stone have difficulty restraining the liquids in their orbitals when
witnessing the acrobatic feats of this blue-and-orange dynamo.
The plaque in Cooperstown is at the ready. Immortal infielders Honest Wagner, Books Robinson, and George Brett will be among the first to embrace Reyes into the
pantheon of baseball immortality. We as Mets fans should be proud; let us stand at attention every time Reyes approaches the plate, and bestow from our
tonsils, the Reyes chant that echoes majestically from sea to shining sea.
May 8, 2017 I’m not old enough to remember Larry as a Met, but I
do recall him playing for the Padres in 1972. He drew
a ninth-inning walk that kept the Cubs’ Milt Pappas
from pitching a perfect game that year. Pappas, for
the rest of his life, was upset with umpire Bruce Froemming
Froemming over the call of that last pitch. Froemming
went on to a 37-year career as an ump in the major
leagues, but has yet to be inducted into the Hall of
Fame. The national media, which is pathetically
obsessed with the northside Chicago team, is likely
using this “Call to Stahl” as a reason for not voting
for him. Hey, it’s something that was against their
dear-little Cubbies! Nothing against Larry, but if he
had made the final out in that time at bat, Froemming
would have his well-deserved plaque in Cooperstown by
May 8, 2017 Warren Spahn thought that Willey would be a big winner in the NL, but was always unlucky with small injuries If you look at his first two years with the Mets his record is amazing . We all remember how bad those teams were yet his ERA was incredible. And Willie Mays could not figure him out.
