Every year for the last 3 years as Spring gives way to Fall, Mets season merges into NY Rangers season, I have been able to keep the baseball side of my brain occupied with thoughts of Mets Fantasy Camp. This year more so then ever, in the past I have simply gone down to cover the week long camp as a reporter, this season I am headed down to actually participate as a player. Each year I have tried to find unique ways of counting down the days until camp and sharing them with Mets fans, So this year I will do the countdown by Jersey numbers, When possible I will post my 3 favorite Mets who have worn that number, some numbers are harder then others.
Everybody's Buddy, amazing range, my most vivid memory of Derrel McKinley Harrelson comes from the WOR channel 9 open for the Mets game on TV when Buddy gets better vertical lift then any current Ny Knick to pull in a line drive.Bud was a human highlight film at short before the Web-Gem Days! The other one of course is when he took on superstar Pete Rose to lead the Mets in the 1973 playoffs---he will always be a Mets Classic! Here is my interview with Bud from WLIE 540am SPORTSTALKNY
While Curtis did not put up the numbers Mets Fans expected in his first year, he never stopped working or coming to the park with a smile on his face. As awful as his season was he still managed 20 home runs and 66 RBIS, I am expecting a big bounce back season from the Grandy Man in 2015. Here is my interview with him from 2014.
