Share your memories of Pat Mahomes


Oh yeah, he's lost a couple with the Mets now. Don't worry about him cracking the rotation. His future with the team is over in about 6 weeks. The difference between last year and this year? He absolutely can't throw a breaking ball for a strike this year. In fact, when he throws his slider, he doesn't come within a foot of the strike zone. He also has trouble getting his fastball over for strikes. Hitters just wait for him to finally throw a heater over the plate and they unload on it. No control at all. Absolutely awful ever since his disastrous start in San Diego. Goodbye, Pat. See you next year in Japan pitching for the Nippon Ham Fighters.

All and all, Pat Mahomes left me with many more good memories than bad. There were so many games when the Mets were in a bad spot and Mahomes came in and stopped the bleeding. One time, in particular, I remember being at work and was listening to the radio. The Mets were getting pounded and I turned it off. I thought the game was over. When I turned it back on hours later, Mahomes had just pitched 6 shutout innings and the Mets had just took the lead. They won the game. Thanks Pat. I believed. Good luck in Texas.

Let's not forget that Pat kept the Mets in Game 6 of the '99 LCS after Leiter gave up a 5-spot in the first. Mahomes came in and threw 4-plus scoreless innings while the Mets clawed back and eventually took the lead, before finally losing it in the 11th. He was a good hitter, too.

Mahomes was a capable long reliever, but he was miscast too many times as a set-up man or as a starting pitcher. He was also a pretty decent hitter.

I remember him doubling in the right center field gap in his debut with the Mets at Philadelphia in a game where Leiter was torched early, but we came back to win, with Mahomes holding the fort.

Like Ray Sadecki in the 1970s, Mahomes could start a little, relieve a little, and hit a little. I forgot that he went undefeated in '99. It also seemed like that when I saw him on TV or at Shea get a hit, it would usually be a double.

Pat went 8-0 (!) for a team that needed a 163rd game to reach the playoffs. That's huge. Some of it was being in the right place at the right time, but if you check out the Game Log you'll see he earned those wins. Very good ERA (3.68) for the "steroid era" -- half a run lower than any of the Mets' starters. He was solid in the post season too. Pat Mahomes was to the '99 team what George Stone was in '73. Both were journeymen who had a career year out of the blue for teams that needed every victory they could muster.

I read in Baseball Weekly that Mahomes is the minor leagues active leader in strikeouts. I couldn't beleive he was still pitching.

Pat Mahomes is the only Met ballplayer I have personally met. His father and mine worked for the same company, with Mahome's father working at the Dallas branch of my father's company.

He was one of the nicest guys I ever met and talked to me for an hour. He gave me all kinds of crazy insider clubhouse info in that '99 season. He said that Bobby Valentine was personally trying to get Bonilla to take a swing at him so that the Mets could null and void his $7 mil contract!! Haha. I can see Valentine trying to do that. He said despite Piazza making 13 mil per year, he drove a 10 year old Dodge and was a tightwad at team dinners.

I still have the hat he personally autographed for me on my mantle. He was easy to root for, not just because of his personality, but because he was money in that '99 season!!!
