┬áChris Jaffe of The Hardball Times has another great post today as he goes in depth on the Mets-Reds game that was played 25 years ago today. This game is famous for the Davey Johnson use of Jesse Orosco and Roger McDowell shuttle from pitcher’s mound to the outfield and for one of the best baseball fights ever when Ray Knight knocked out Eric Davis for sliding into him at 3rd base.

I don’t know if this game has been available to SNY for its Mets Classics but if not, they need to pay whatever amount need be to obtain it even if it’s the Cincinnati feed because this was one of the best games ever!

  1. Gary + Keith were talking about this game tonight..They showed the fight..

  2. Krane, welcome to the party. I have been screaming forever (well, at least since they started showing “classic games”) For them to start digging and showing different games. We all know they won the ’69 WS, so I did not mind them showing game one, it was the first time I had ever seen it. Still was interesting and awesome to see the first WS game in team history. I want to see games like that Reds game. How about the Steve Henderson game? I am sure that they can dig up all kinds of other games, if they really want to. Hell, they basically in Howie Rose and Gary Cohen have two walking Mets encyclopedias already on the payroll. So, lets go folks, they have shown the game against the Padres that ended in that weird double play a bunch of times, so why not the Ray Knight/Eric Davis fun fest?
