HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:
October 23, 2003 The Mets falsely made Vern the scapegoat of the 2003 season. Actually the pitching wasn't that bad. The hitting was terrible. The Mets lost a lot of 1-run games that easliy could've been won if they got an extra hit here and there.
June 17, 2005 A member of Art Howe's 1980's Houston brigade, Ruhle was an excellent pitcher who has yet to find success as a pitching coach, meeting with disappointment in Toronto as well as in Flushing.
March 17, 2006 Let's wish Vern well as he seeks to recover from the same form of cancer, multiple myeloma, that Mel Stottlemyre has successfully battled.
January 24, 2007 Just heard Vern passed away from cancer, way too young. Although he was the pitching coach during some lean times, he always seemed like a nice guy.
