April 28, 2014 I knew Ed in high school and although I did not know him as a ballplayer, I did know him as a heck of a nice guy. It would have been wonderful to see him on my Mets, but he clearly found his true calling.
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".
