Here’s To You Kid!

All I know about Gary Carter are the stories that I’ve read or that others have told me, plus what I’ve learned from watching various films, interviews and documentaries. From what I have always heard and read about Doc, Straw, Keith and many of others on that 1986 team, they were heavy duty partiers and what not. But you never heard that about Carter. He was simply that classic...

MMO Exclusive: Gary Carter Feature from New York Sports Magazine, October 1985

Introduction by Stephen Hanks When I heard Gary Carter had finally succumbed to brain cancer at the too-young age of 57, I had two immediate memories. They weren’t of being at Shea on Opening Day 1985, when Carter hit his walk-off, 10th inning home run in his first game as a Met, or of Carter starting the two-out rally that won Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. I remembered first...

A Fitting Farewell To The Kid

By: Lars Lewis Yesterday, I talked to Montreal hip hop artist Annakin Slayd, and he told me that he was in tears all that morning. Slayd was, and still is a diehard Montreal Expos fan.

We’ll Miss You, Kid!

Over my 19 years of existence, I have watched thousands of archived baseball games.  Whether they are on TV or the Internet, it was always interesting to watch old games from back in the 60′s, 70′s, 80, and 90′s.
