Default Signature Identification help needed 1980's Mets

So I bought this ball on the BST. It was Id'ed as 1986, but when I got it in hand, it has Kevin McReynolds on it, so has to be 1987 or later. It also has coaches Greg Pavlick and Sam Perlozzo, who were together as coaches in 1988 and 1989. Both rosters were very similar and all the names I have id'ed so far were on both teams. Soooo I am stuck with 2 or 3 names on the ball that I can't identify who will hopefully allow me to tell if it's 1988 or 1989.

The ones I need some help with are Side 1 Number 3, Side 2 Number 6, and Side 2 Number 7.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Side 1.
1. Roger McDowell
2. Bud Harrelson
3. Not sure, but could be Ron Darling
4. Darryl Strawberry
5. Gene Walter
6. Lee Mazzilli
8. Wally Backman

Side 2.
1. Keith Hernandez
2. Keith Miller
3. Kevin McReynolds
4. Sam Perlozzo
5. Gary Carter
6. ?No Idea. KInd of looks like a sloppy Rin Darling as well., but just guessing.
7. Possibly a sloppy Lenny Dykstra
8. Greg Pavlick

Side 3
1. Terry Leach
2. Mookie Wilson
3. Bill Robinson
4. Dave Magadan
5. Howard Johnson
6. Kevin Elster
7. Doc Gooden

Side 4
1. Mel Stottlemyre
2. Rick Aguilera
3. Randy Myers
4. Bob Ojeda
5. Barry Lyons
6. Dave Cone
7. Sid Fernandez
8. Tim Teufel

Definitely Darling and Dykstra and I believe the other is Bob McClure. Should be from 1988, there are too many names from the 1989 team missing that a ball this complete would have.

Gene Walter played for the Mets between 1987 and 1988. Wally Backman's last year with the Mets was 1988. Greg Pavlick was coaching in the minor league system as a pitching instructor in 1987 before returning to the majors with the Mets in 1988.

That would point to this ball being from 1988 assuming the signatures were all gathered in the same season.
