January 24, 2014 Archie and I work at The Palace in Beaumont, Texas. I remember he lived just down Tram Road. He was a very good Christian man. I always looked up to him. I was very proud of his successful career in baseball.
January 24, 2014 I played with Dave for three seasons with Mets. Great guy, we had some good times together. Dave always played hard. Too bad he hurt his knee for he would have had a chance to make it. He also liked to taunt opposing players. Got us in a few team fights. Remember the Ossie race? He could really run until knee injury. Miss you Dave!
February 14, 2014 L.J. has a promising future with the Mets just like his old man. Saw him play on SNY this past season. The Cyclones ballpark looks very nice from what I've heard from people I have talked to and in 2014, I'm hoping to stop by and check out some Mets prospects in person.
January 24, 2014 Played with "Smitty" in Jackson in 79. Good ol' cowboy who loved fishing and playing his guitar on the back of the bus. Had good stuff on the mound. Never got a chance. Who knows what would've happened had he not been with the crappy Mets organization.
February 28, 2014 In the late 60's-early 70's you had Seaver-Koosman- Ryan-Gentry-Stone and Matlack. In the mid 80's there was Gooden-Ojeda-Darling-Fernandez etc and we even had Generation K which didn't work out for the most part. Now in 2014 and beyond we have Harvey-Wheeler-Niese- Gee and soon enough Noah Syndergaard. They have been calling him "THOR" but when he was in the Blue Jays system he was known as "IVAN DRAGO" aka Dolph Lungren the Russian boxer who killed Apollo Creed in "ROCKY IV".
