HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Mr. Sparkle
First non-pitcher to pitch in a game for the Mets. Other than that, not much.

Remember when Jeff Torborg said, "Wait till you see this guy."

The only thing I remeber about the guy was that he was very, very bald. Oh yeah he sucked too.

The only thing I remember about Bill Pecota was saying, "please no, we didnt just trade Kmac for him." But there is alot I dont remember about him, like ever ever doing anything, not once.

The only thing I remember is everyone saying "You're going to LOVE Bill Pecota." We didn't

Bill Pecota claimed Mets immortality when he spiked the ball on a relay. Cubs announcer Steve Stone dubbed it the worst relay throw in baseball history. Well, I don't know how anyone can throw a worse one.

Pecota hit one of his two Met homers in a 16 inning game against the Pirates on 8/10/92 but the Mets still lost 4-2.

The 1993 Phillies won the pennant when Mitch Williams struck out Pecota to end the NLCS. Pecota wasn't exactly Joe Carter.

Bill Pecota has the strange honor of having a statistical projection computer named after him. Oh sure, it's an acronym...PECOTA...but Baseball Prospectus (the firm that employs it) has had their employees admit they named it after a ballplayer who just seemed to be an average Joe type guy.
