HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Yankee Hater #1
February 27, 2002
This was the year that BIng (not so) Devine picked up every player that was out there. A typical Yankee, mediocre pitcher who was saved by pitching for a good team. When "STUMPY" came to the Mets he pitched pretty well considering what was surrounding him.

Hal and I were friends from age 10 and he passed away Tuesday Sept 7th 2004 from cancer at his home in Ontario, California.

Hal was a friend of my mother and father from Chaffey HS in Ontario, CA. Just like Mr. Warner said, he was quite a good person and player. Hal, I hope you rest in peace, and God bless.

He was one of the fatter men to pitch for the Mets, along with Mickey Lolich and Sid Fernandez.

I recently read a Yankees "where-are-you-now" book, and Hal came across as very bitter and indifferent to his career. He essentially said baseball was no more than a job he fell into and he could not care less about his days in MLB. I've never heard about a person who was less excited about being a major league baseball player. Hey, Hal, you lived our dream!

"Porky" was his nickname, and as Bill James wrote, there hasn't been another in the majors since. I looked unsuccessfully to see who might have hung it on him.
