HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Scheffing gets a lot of heat for trading Nolan Ryan, but what most fans don't know is that Ryan was so sick of New York that he had gone to the front office and told them he would retire, rather than play for the Mets in '72. So Scheffing really had no choice but to trade Ryan, or risk losing him for nothing. Getting Fregosi? Pretty weak, in retrospect. But it wasn't Scheffing's idea (or Hodges's) to let Ryan go.
