  1. Great stories about Jeffries, McDowell, Franco, etc. I was a BIG Mets fan in the ’70’s and 80’s, and was at that last home game/title fight of ’89. I think Jeffries made the final out before he charged McDowell. Even before the bottom of the ninth, everyone there knew that this game was to be the sad ending of an unfulfilled era. Carter and Hernandez got standing ovations in their final at bats (neither were coming back in ’90), as did Davey Johnson during a pitching change. Joe Mclvaine had spent most of that year gutting the team, a madness partially driven by the need to clear a position for Jeffries to play. When the Mets fell short, the front office blamed Johnson, who was gone by the following summer. But Mets fans knew better; as McDowell and Jeffries were separated, and both teams wandered off the field, some fans out in left hung a homemade banner with a simple, paint scrawled rhyme; “Who’s to Blame, McLvaine?” What a shame.
