Straw on EPSN Radio just now, sounding like a petulant child.


Isn't he supposed to be a Man of God these days? Or is he just a Man of Fraud like a lot of them?

2019 is the 50 year anniversary of something rather cool. I wonder what the mets have planned for that, and how their relationship is with the 69 team.

30 year anniversaries? Who celebrates 30 year anniversaries. If the Yankees did that, they'd be celebrating something every year. It would be silly. Mets can do that cause they only have two titles.


The 69' team was the best thru 1973 as they were not expected to do anything and made it to the World series twice, actually losing to the A's in 7.

The 86' and latest teams are/were disappointments for various reasons.

Can't he be both at the same time? He may very well have put his demons at bay in terms of drugs and addictions, but that doesn't mean he can't still be the bs artist he's always been.

Doesn't he make money by going around the country preaching? I don't think being bitter and holding grudges would be something he preaches.

Humans are imperfect. Love Straw, but he is human.

Love him as a player? I get that. As a person, through all his many incarnations, I can't think of any endearing quality.

He's also making money on this book tour.

As a Met, and as a human being.

I don't advocate for his mistakes, nor do I think his choices that have impacted his family and self have been acceptable. Just have always felt bad for youngsters who live too hard too quickly.

Good for you - I'm sure he had a very rough go of it as a young man and was completely unprepared for what came his way. I would feel a lot better about him if he displayed more grace in his middle years, but I'm not in his shoes.

I'm not quite sure how a world championship team can be qualified as a disappointment.

These former players were all bad guys, Keith included.

However since it's Fredo being blamed, gonna give Straw the benefit of the doubt
