Opinion: Where’s Our Tom Seaver Statue?

In an interview on Friday morning with Boomer and Carton on WFAN, Tom Seaver said that the Mets have never approached him about erecting a statue or monument in his honor at Citi Field. “I understand that I’m a part of the history of the game of baseball, it is going to be what it is,” Seaver said, when asked about his legacy. “The wonderful thing are the memories that I...

Was Tom Seaver too sullen in 1970?

I found an old Baseball News article written between the 1970 and 1971 seasons. The premise of the article, “The Mets Under A Microscope” is that Tom Seaver’s diminished level of performance following his superlative 1969 season was a major factor in leading to a third place finish by the New York Mets. In 1969, Seaver went 25-7 with a 2.21 ERA; in 1970, he went 18-12 with...

What Ernie Bowman taught Tom Seaver

I picked up a 1966 Topps Ernie Bowman baseball card last week. This is an interesting card in its own right because Bowman never actually played a game for the New York Mets. In 1966, Bowman played for their minor league affiliate, the Jacksonville Suns. What also makes Bowman particularly interesting is because of how he fits into the team’s history. What makes the Jacksonville...

Tom Seaver Says Today’s Pitchers Are ‘Babied Too Much’. Do You Agree?

  When ‘The Franchise’ speaks, you’d be wise to listen. Mets great Tom Seaver has spoken out in the wake of Matt Harvey’s season ending injury. In Seaver’s rant, he left no stone unturned–even going after today’s ‘computer geeks’ who Seaver perceives to be running things. “These kids today, they want to be men, they want to be foxhole guys, but they’re not...

On this date 29 years ago, Mets lose Seaver again

It is easy to point to June 15th, 1977 as the day the Mets franchise was ruined forever. After speculation, the Mets traded the best player in their history, Tom Seaver, to the Cincinnati Reds for Dan Norman, Pat Zachary, Steve Henderson and Doug Flynn. Yes, the move was crazy and fans had the right to be upset over it. The Mets made a trade with the Reds after the 1982 season to...

On this date in Reds history: Seaver throws a no-no and Soto goes loco

Both accounts are courtesy of excerpts taken from Redleg Journal: June 16, 1978 - Tom Seaver pitches the only no-hitter of his career in a 4-0 Reds win over St. Louis at Riverfront Stadium. Previously, Seaver had entered the ninth inning with a no-hitter three times, and surrendered a base hit on each occasion. In this game in the ninth, he walked Jerry Mumphrey...
