This was supposed to be a steal of a trade for a guy who was supposed to be "the odd man out" in the great Brave pitching staff. He didn't make the Braves because he sucked, not because their staff was so good. He was one of the worst pitchers the Mets ever had.

The Mets swore that Smith was going to mature into a good pitcher. The Braves had rushed him to the majors because they were about the worst team in baseball in the late 80's. Instead, they got one of the worst, most hittable right handed starters in their history. Lots and lots of hits....boy did he suck.

I can remember this guy having one good start: his first. Back when the Mets, coming off that dreadful '93 season, started 3-0, he pitched well in Wrigley and I thought good things. And then it all went downhill. Maybe the only good thing about the strike that year was not having to see him pitch in a Met uniform any longer.

Pete was the first post-'93 acquisition. Joe McIlvane referred to him as a .500 pitcher, adding something like "he's not great." We just came off a 59-103 embarrassment, and Joe Mac, bless his Fatherly heart, is trying to keep our expectations realistic.

All I remember about this guy was that it seemed every time he came into a game, the game was over. Home runs galore.

The only real memory I have about Pete Smith, is that I was at the only complete game he pitched all year, a great game against the Reds, but no one paid attention, because that was the night the Rangers played the Devils in the semi-finals. Half the crowd had a radio, the other was asking people what was happening.

Pete never lived up to his advance billing as one of the great Brave pitchers. He was shelled more often than Allen Watson. Whatever happened to him after he left the Mets?

I was hoping that the Mets stole one when they got this guy from Atlanta. Boy, was I wrong.

Just terrible with the Mets. But he did last more than a decade in the bigs.

OK guys I know he has been out of baseball for a while and some of these comments have been on a long time and yes his career wasn't the best. But I watched Pete before and after and during the game and he gave 100% and even when he was making a lot of money back then he did not get a big head. This was a ballplayer, a real one. Never said no to an autograph and would sit and talk to fans forever after a game. Out on the field he might not have lived up to the New York expectations but then again when is the last time a Met has?
