Tom Seaver

My dad said Tom Seaver was a BEAST. I think he once struck out 10 batters in a row. It's a tough call because Johan Santana is unhittable this year and everytime the Mets need a victory, he comes though. Do you know what I found? Johan is a good pitcher, but not a great one. Yet anyway. Tom Seaver was dominating. He along with Matlack and Koosman gave the Mets a powerful rotation in the '70's. If those Mets teams had better defensive players ( Ed Kranepool had to play somewhere), Seaver's numbers would have been even better. And in old school form, Tom Seaver didn't need no stinkin' closer. He was his own closer.

A tribute to one of the greatest pitchers to ever play baseball Tom Seaver.
