    A smart man, Billy Loes. Those 1962 Mets were not a pretty picture.
    Here's a link to a post I wrote on my blog, a while back:

    • how did the salary deal work with the mets draftees?. same as players traded or on an individual basis, like usual. or was there a rule as to a standard salarly for expansion teams?. what happens if you refuse to go?, the season starts and then you've got another team who wants to sign you does the expansion team have a right of first refusal even though their roster is filled? not up on mets or expansion rules especially at the time. maybe billy wanted more money? battlin bake, the dodger dynamo

In fact Loes rode on the Mets float in the 1961 Macys Thansgiving day parade. Then in typical Loes fashion he never showed up for spring training. Billy always marched to a different drummer.
        thank you robert. here's another:

          Truer words were never spoken, shotten1947. Thank you for stating them, once again, to remind everyone who visits US.

          Thank you for the welcome, hopefully I can contribute something to the forum. People need to know the truth about O'Malley.

          • Well it happened

            I have no idea how, but I guess the HBO Documentary softened the perceptions of him and he is now in the Hall. I hope you guys do go and protest and boo, it would be well deserved.

            • Today's election of O'Malley to the Hall Of Fame must belike swallowing Cyanide to a true Brooklyn fan.
              I feel the revulsion all the way down the NJ Turnpike in Philadelphia. Brooklyn fans, you have my sympathies.

                Thanks, philliesfiend55. You summed up the situation extremely well.


                In 1957, if the Dodgers were owned by then Phillies owner Ruliph Carpenter, the franchise never would have been hijacked out of Brooklyn.
