(New York Daily News)   Suffering from stage 3 Lyme disease, it had gotten so bad for Tom Seaver that he'd forgotten how godawful the Mets have been lately. In other news, half of Queens runs naked into the forest in hopes of picking up a few dozen tick bites   (nydailynews.com) divider line 28

Forgetting how bad the Mets are sounds like a good thing if you're a Mets fan.

flynn80: Forgetting how bad the Mets are sounds like a good thing if you're a Mets fan.


It took me a while, but I believe that was the joke that subby was trying to make.

I've been somewhat up on the Mets entering this season, but just about no one they have is both good and healthy right now.  They need Ike Davis to hit like 85 home runs.  That seems unlikely.

I'm a Yankee fan, but Seaver is the best pitcher I've ever seen in my lifetime. A class act, too.

Lyme disease sucks.. I got it around 15 years ago and even though the treatment worked, I still have daily issues that remind me of it.

How the hell can a robot get Stage 3 Lyme disease?

/May have read that name wrong

I only saw seaver when I was younger (basically 82 on), but what does greg maddux sit on this list?

Right behind him. My top three are Seaver, Maddux, Carlton.

} saw Seaver from '69 onwards

You want me to read a whole comment? Ain't nobody got time for that...

Could that article have made more references to the vineyard where vintner Tom Seaver makes his wine from the grapes that he grows in his vineyard where he's a winemaker who makes wine? Holy winemaking fark. By the end of it I'd forgotten he'd ever played baseball, because winemaker Tom Seaver makes wine now, if you hadn't heard.

If we're talking alltime pitchers, I'm taking Lefty Grove over most of these names.  As great as they are.

If we're talking pitchers during any of our lifetimes, I don't know how Pedro doesn't make the cut, although longevity matters too.

I should wine myself for wine disease? That doesn't make any wine.

One of the crazier aspects of the recent extreme hitters' era is that it featured five of the 15-20 greatest pitchers in the history of the game (Maddux, Clemens, Johnson, Pedro, Rivera), plus a good number of other HOF-caliber and borderline HOF-caliber pitchers.  Definitely an era of haves and have-nots for pitchers.

Indeed.  And now, pitching is making a comeback, and we don't have a single sure HoF pitcher going (other than Mariano, that is).  Plenty appear to be on track, and if he retired today, Roy Halladay's probably a Hall of Famer, but he's not Maddux/Johnson/Pedro/that other guy I won't name because fark him.

Yeah, and there's been a crazy amount of turnover at the top, too.  Only about 5-6 years ago, if you asked who's the best pitcher in baseball, the pretty much undisputed answer would have been Johan Santana, with Jake Peavy, Roy Oswalt, Brandon Webb, Roy Halladay, Josh Beckett, C.C. Sabathia and Ben Sheets in a lively debate for #2.  From that list, Halladay gets into that discussion now, and even he's coming off a bad year.  Halladay's the only one who seems to be HOF-bound, too, with all due respect for the nice career C.C. has had.

Meant to say, from that list, only Halladay gets into that discussion now.

I think Bobby Bonilla is the highest paid Mets outfielder this season.

LOL

When I was a kid, I read his book. I was never a Mets fan, but I would pretend I was him when I would throw a baseball.

I have chronic Lyme disease (was taken off the treatment when I was a kiddo). All my symptoms have reduce in presence and severity as I've gotten older... except for the joint problem. Oh god, the joint problems.

/25 with knees of a 90 year old.

Second highest paid. You forgot Jason Bay.

I'm surprised the Mets aren't still paying Benny Agbayani.

12 years. Can't run, ataxia. No SCUBA any more.

Shait people.  I didn't know Lyme disease was so.....relentless.  You have my sympathies.

/Very glad Tom Seaver is feeling better.  One of the best damn pitchers of his generation.

lyme's is horrible. got it at 22 and I have the joints of a geriatric.  Im lucky not to have any of the neurological deficits. It's a Disease that the pro's really don't know much about still. It's almost as scary and bleak as being a mets fan. Seaver was a great pitcher though, gotta give credit where credit is due.

In related news, it looks like Wright is going to start the season on the DL.
