murphy God, was this guy awful. How he was a closer in Milwaukee, I'll never understand. He was guaranteed gasoline on a roaring fire. Putrid.
rg Boy it's hard to believe that this guy was actually pitching in the NLDS. I guess if the 13-inning game had gone on even longer they would have trotted out Butch Metzger or Paul Siebert. The worst part is that the Mets acquired him from Milwaukee in exchange for Fernando Vina!
December 22, 2000 In two years he pitched well for about half a season and then really sucked the rest of the time. I was happy to see him in the game during the playoffs against the Giants this year but surprised when he pitched well. He's no Brad Clontz but I'm glad he's history.
July 20, 2003 Perhaps the nicest person to ever play professional baseball. A family man, Doug was and still is an excellent role model for anyone. He is religious, humble, and incredibly down to earth. Any Mets fan who bad mouthed him were shut up when he came back strong with the Giants a couple of years later. Doug Henry is a truly good person.
February 4, 2004 Pretty bad relief pitcher during a time when the Mets had many bad relief pitchers. Always had this "game face" glare when he pitched. Mustache made him look like a State Trooper.
March 9, 2007 His 1995 ERA was pretty damn good. Much better than I thought given my vague recollections of him. Still, trading Fernando Vina for Henry was but another bad Mets trade.
March 16, 2007 I remember him as being erratic. You never knew whether you were going to get good Doug or evil Doug. I guess it's fair to say the dark side won.
