I can't believe no one else has written about Andy. This guy had a good year as a lefty reliever in 1979. He had a great sweeping curve to lefties. Best years were with the Angels. Hate him being a part of the 85 Cardinals.

Had to be one of the worst hitting pitchers ever. I remember every time I saw him at bat he K'd. Makes Al Leiter look like Bobby Bonds.

I remember when the Mets got Hassler and Dock Ellis on the same day-what a day in Mets history!

The only thing I remember about Hassler is that he always looked like he needed a shave and had slept in his uniform.

There wasn't really much to cheer about in 1979. Getting Hassler and Dock Ellis on the day of the old trade deadline was one such moment. Being a rather naive Mets fan, I thought that these two guys would help pick up the team's fortunes. But the only thing they picked up was their pay checks.

Hassler (who kind of resembled a bloodshot-looking Robert Urich) was pretty good with the Angels and the Royals. He did, however, have long losing streak that he broke right after his being was dealt to the Royals. Don't remember too much about him as a Met, though. Remember, there wasn't much to cheer about.

I remember being really excited for some reason when the Mets got him. For reasons I can't explain I thought he was good-again hey I was just a little kid then. Boy did he stink.

When they got him and Dock Ellis on the same day, I said, "What is this, Old Timer's Day?"

He came back to haunt us as a St. Louis Cardinal. Another guy who hurt the Mets, whether playing for them or against them.
