Default The tragedy of being a lifelong Mets fan

Found this lineup sheet over the weekend when I was packing some stuff up. I was 16 and it was a doubleheader at Shea. Me and a buddy snuck onto the press level somehow and I grabbed this off a table. Look at the Dodgers lineup as compared to the Mets. Sheesh. Not hard to guess who won this one.

Those were some lean years.

John Stearns was my favorite player after Seaver was traded, there really wasn't much else to root for.

Stearns was a tough player. Was on crap teams but still was a decent catcher. Believe me, I'd trade D'Arnaud and Plewecki tomorrow for John Stearns.

The most inexplicable player in that line up to me was Stevie Henderson. Thought he had All Star potential but it never materialized. Great tools. I never remember him being injured but he never panned out. Was sort of like he just couldn't escape the bad juju of the Seaver trade.

Seaver was traded for Henderson, Doug Flynn, Pat Zachery and WHO??? Outfielder who went no where fast.

Dan Norman.

Steve Henderson had a great half season when he was first called but as you said never panned out.

I have game used jerseys from 2 of the players in the Seaver trade (Pat Zachry and Dan Norman)

Dan Norman. Correct. Never did a damm thing.

Neil Allen started the game and got the loss. Glad he salvaged his career as a relief pitcher. Had good stuff and has been a successful pitching coach.

Richie Hebner. What a bust. That lineup brings back some bad memories.

Joel Youngblood supposedly had one of the greatest outfield arms ever. At least according to the Mets announcers.
