August 19, 2001 What was the Mets front office thinking when they included HERM in that trade for Gary Carter, we could have used him in a one for one trade for Andre Dawson. IM JOKING...

November 9, 2001 Notable as one of the half-dozen or so centerfielders the Mets traded away during the mid-80s (including Marvelle Wynn, Gerald Young, Stan Jefferson and ultimately Mookie Wilson and Lenny Dykstra), leaving them with second-basemen Keith Miller and Juan Samuel trying to learn the position in the big leagues. Not that I disagree with the Carter trade, mind you, just pointing out where it all led.
May 30, 2002 During the early 1980's Herm was a constant star in the "Mets on the Rise" section of the yearbook. He never did rise with the Mets but he did have a serviceable career.
April 22, 2004 Note----Always had a toothpick in his mouth when taking batting practice!
October 28, 2005 Journeyman outfielder who, as a Red, won a World Series ring and witnessed Pete Rose's epic fall from grace.
November 10, 2005 I was at the final game of the '84 season. It was that series against the Expos where Herm went 5 for 10 and convinced the Expos he was the answer for them in CF/leadoff position. Certainly had an influence on the trade...maybe they should give Herm an '86 ring.
June 22, 2009 Looks like did well in his late 1984 callup. Always remembered as part of the Gary Carter trade.
