Congrats to Dickey. he plays as Gil Hodges played and coached. Now that the Hall of Fame has finally elected Ron Santo (way overdue) it’s time for that committee to re-examine Gil’s career.
and Hodges did the unimaginable in leading the Mets in 1969 over the Cubbies (sorry about that black cat, Ron!) and then to the most improbable World Series win ever over a great Baltimore team. Ron Santos deserves this hono. too bad it comes a year after his passing. But, come on, isn’t it time for Hodges too?Put Santos and Hodges stats together and they are very close. Hodges had more HR’s, a higher slugging %, and a .992 fielding percentage (that is NOT a misprint). Add on that the Dodgers won pennants, and a WS.
“Anything can happen,” Torres said Wednesday on an introductory conference call. “[If] we play together, we can win. I know people talk about things, but I believe in that.”
The Mets should play in Kansas City where nobody cares.
Asian players can be overrated at times. you also need the right system and experience with asian players. we cannot afford an asian player it’s too much for this team to deal with. i could see him with bobby valentine and the sox.
