  • Goodbye Larry

    He's been a pain to Mets fans his whole career, but a truly great opponent.

    This Mets fan wishes him well whatever he does post-career.

    Hoping he gets to pinch hit today for one final AB.

    I thought they honored him earlier in the year. I don't really understand why the Mets would honor him either. Is anyone else doing this?

      Booing Chipper IS honoring him. He should be thankful that he gets booed. As Reggie Jackson said, they don't boo nobodies.

      And Chipper deserves it, too. He's been a Met killer his whole career, and named his son Shea just to stick that knife in and twist it even deeper. So I'll boo him every chance I get.

        Dammit, I was hoping that Lucchino got booted out somehow when I saw the thread title!!!
        I know he's a stakeholder so he's probably tough to get rid of, but I'm sure Henry could do it somehow.

          I propose a one way ticket to the Bahamas.
          The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

            Maybe the Bermuda Triangle?

            Congrats to Chipper on a great career and a classy last season...I'm sure he'd love it if the Mets faithful booed the tar out of him.

              Shouldn't this thread be titled "Goodbye Larry Wayne"?

                  He pinch hit today and was mostly cheered. Walked then left for a pinch runner. Was cheered his last time leaving a NY field.

                    Saw his at-bat on the television. Didn't like how they were showing all the pro-Larry signs and just one anti-, but then I realized a) they were being held by Braves fans - I even got a kick out of the sign that said something to the effect of 'thanks for making my life as a Braves fan in NY bearable,' and b) maybe the anti-Larry faction wasn't inclined to make 'good riddance' signs, so there may not have been many for SNY to show.
