HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Two memories: Foote getting bowled over by a foul ball while coaching third, and a long article, I believe in the Times, in which Foote discussed the fine art of stealing signs.

Of the latter, it seemed like he knew what he was talking about. I just wish he could have stolen a few more signs than he did. He coached for Jeff Torborg, you know.

The recent book on the 1986 team mentioned that Foote was very popular on the Expos. Then Gary Carter showed up, making Foote expendable. Carter's Montreal teammates never forgave him for this, among other things, despite his HOF numbers.

I knew Foote while he was managing the Albany Yankees in 1985. I thought he was going to be a terrific big league manager. He had a great sense of the game, called pitch-outs on suicide squeeze plays. He was an intimidating manager who won the division in 1985. He helped develop Doug Drabek and Bob Tweksbury.

He had a really cool Topps baseball card in 1975. It's a shot of him walking off the mound, and I think the Topps Rookie All-Star trophy is on it as well. He had a strong first year, then the rise of Kid Carter and his struggles his second and third year did him in as an Expo. Personally, I thought he was going to be Carter-like. Guess I was a little off.
