HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Remember that wild series the Mets had with Houston in 1998? In one of the games the Mets won, it was the Tam man who saved the day when he covered home plate to tag out an Astro after uncorking a wild pitch (it was either in the ninth inning or in one of the extra frames).

I think that of all the regular season series the Mets played in their history, this one with the Astros (they took three out of four) was perhaps the greatest in terms of excitement and drama. And Tam was one of many players who contributed to the Mets' success!

Tam gave up a game-ending homer to future Met, Derek Bell in that Astros series. Bell ticked off some of his future mates by standing at home plate and admiring his blast. it was an exciting series but for my money I'll take the 3-game epic in St. Louis in October of 1985 as the most exciting regular season series in club history.

That's funny, clubhouse! I remember that HR but forgot that it was Tam who served it up. Bell absolutely got all of it, and you could read his lips as he dropped his bat and mouthed -- kind of like Higgins from Magnum, P.I. -- "Oh my God!"

Had more effective moments than ineffective for the Mets, and probably should have been given a longer audition before we lost him to Oakland, where he had a few decent years.

Tam was claimed off waivers by Cleveland in 1999, pitched something like 1/3 of an inning for them, and when they tried to outright him back to AAA, we got him right back.

I'm not sure exactly who the Mets were playing but I had great seats at Shea on a bright Saturday when they were giving away beanie babies, the game was tied in the 8th and Jeff Tam came into the game and pitched a perfect inning. The Mets took the lead in the bottom of the inning and Jeff Tam collected his first win of his career. I was about ten years old at the time and thought to myself wow I cannot believe I was at Jeff Tam's first win, and as all you can tell it was a proud day in Mets history.

Hard to tell if Chris is kidding or not in his December 26, 2005 post....but Jeff Tam's first win as a Met (and also his first major league win) came on a Sunday afternoon at Shea against the Expos.

Hideo Nomo started for the Mets and took a 1-0 lead into the 6th inning. But Montreal scored twice in the sixth when Tam came into the game with one out. He retired the next two batters then the Mets took the lead in the bottom of the sixth when Brian McRae hit a two-run homer off rookie Javier Vasquez. Tam pitched a hitless seventh and his win was secured when the Mets added two in the bottom of the eighth off Mike Maddux.
