Former Mets manager Joe Frazier passed away yesterday at the age of 88. Frazier managed the Mets for a season and a half, winning 86 games with the Mets in 1976 and a 3rd place finish but then getting canned 45 games into the 1977 season  (I have to find time to go through the game logs and game stories of the Mets 1977 which to me, is still the worst season in the history of the franchise. As much as Mets fans are seething over this Madoff/Skill Sets cluster fuck nothing was worse as when the keys to the Mets kingdom were given to that no good piece of shit, M. Donald Grant ) and replaced by St. Joseph of Torre as player-manager.

Check out this post by Mike Silva who give a good take on Frazier’ stewardship with the Mets.
