Darryl has a new book coming out.

Drugs were involved.

I am shocked at this subject line. Shocked, I tell you!

Wow, I didn't know the Mets of the 80s were a bunch of whore-chasing, drug-taking party boys.

The Mets of the 80s abused drugs and banged anything that moved?

In a related story, it is cold in January.

Don't know about Led Zep, but I have bad news about Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

If I were Darryl Strawberry I'd watch out as the grandstanding self-serving pinheads in Washington might be checking into whether or not the statute of limitations has run out on cocaine use and contemplating calling him into hearings in Washington......

Oh wait a minute, cocaine is apparently OK - if it were steroids or hippie lettuce, well then we'd have a bunch of sanctimonious reporters going ape shit about it and trying to get to the bottom of it......

Isn't this like Straw's fifth book or something? Dude was my favorite player when I was a kid, but I think I've read or seen about five different tell-all confessionals from him, including one about how it was all good, because he had Jesus in his life now. I believe that one came out right when he joined the Dodgers.

Yeah, like they went after Jose Canseco when his books came out.

They announced today they likely won't go after A-Rod -- but mostly because they realize it would be political suicide in this current economic crisis to conduct another one of their silly grandstanding exhibitions......

Didn't Pearlman's Mets book already cover all of this? There was a scene in there where they were vandalizing the plane, and the wives were joining in.

And that was originally detailed in the Klapisch/Harper book.

At this point, the only '86 Mets book I'd want to read is one in which it's revealed they WEREN'T drug and booze hounds. Alas, the clean-and-sober Gary Carter and Ed Hearn have already written books, so that's that.

I enjoyed the book on Strawberry and his teammates on the Crenshaw High baseball team. Do we need another retelling of the 1980s Mets?
Can someone take this call?

No. And I've bought every damned one of them.



If you really need to read another book about 1986, this is more encompassing. A great pull.
