Come on I can't be the only guy to remember Pepe!!! I was so pissed when they picked him up. I can still see his mug in the "revised" 1976 yearbook after the trade. Now if we were trading Mel Rojas for Pepe I could see it but not Del Unser!!! Could we trade Bobby Bonilla for Pepe and send them both to hell?

When the Mets traded for Pepe he was a young player (age 24) who could get on base (.351 obp), run, and had some pop (.345 slg). If I could get that player for 31-yr old Unser, I would do it in a second. But I would have given Pepe a chance to develop.

Dwyer was much better after the trade than Unser, but the Mets didn't have the patience to build a good team so he was gone too.

This was the team I loved growing up, but they were very poorly managed. Anyone think that maybe they were trying to lose?

Memories of Pepe Manguel? I rank most of them above having a needle shoved into my eye and below vomiting up last night's dinner. Are you kidding, an established player like Del Unser (even at 31) for this reject? Don't even mention the loss of "Red" Wayne Garrett. Pepe did not even have a career after the Mets realized their mistake.

As a 7 year old I remember Pepe's one home run. I remember shouting in my synagouge that night the great feat of Pepe's trot around the bases.

Ralph Kiner said it all..."Pepe Mangual will drop everything he can get to" He was a true mid-late 70's Met, he stunk

I was 12 years old and remember hearing how Pepe Mangual was going to steal 40 bases, but there was one problem. He couldn't get on base to save his life or his career for that matter. Those were the days where you could pretty much sit whereever you wanted to at Shea.

I used to like the way the PA announcer in Jarry Park tried to pronouce his name. It reminded me of my high school Spanish teacher, who also taught French, and as a result spoke Englsh with a Martian accent.

I was a young Met fan at the time, but I remember being excited about getting an outfielder with some speed. I will always remember rooting for Pepe Mangual, as disappointingly brief as it was.

After seeing enough of him play, my group of friends starting referring to him as Pee Pee Mangual. We continue to do so to this day.
