Not hating bro, he was just as good if not better with the Phillies

He did record the final out of the 1980 World Series with Philly.

Also, Tugs quote after that series.

All through baseball history, Philadelphia has had to take a back seat to New York City. Well, New York City can take this world championship and stick it! 'CAUSE WE'RE NUMBER ONE!

He was always good for both Mets & Phillies, but his notoriety came with the Mets & especially for the 69 Season with him screaming & chanting "YOU GOT TO BELIEVE!!!!!" after every save he made after the All Star game because the Mets were coming out from last place with a run that lead them into 1st place within 6 weeks that took them to the playoff's & then to the World Series. Which they won & being called the "Miracle Mets". Quick-Draw was a huge key in all that, not just with performance, but also mostly with team moral & motivation.

In later years, McGraw expressed remorse toward his comments toward New York. He returned to Shea Stadium on numerous occasions following his retirement, citing his love for the Mets fans.

That is all coming from his Wikapedia page. But also when he was interviewed after learning he didn't make the votes needed on his final year on the HOF ballet. He was aked what team he would have chosen to enter as. He said "Definitely as a Met' I'm a Met for life. YO GOTTA BELIEVE!!!!!!!"

The Mic Has Been Dropped!!!!!! BOOYAH!!!!!!!!!

Your timeline is wrong. You gotta believe was not their 1969 World Series year. It was 1973.

He’s not a reliever but I would love to see a Jose Fernandez card in the game at some point.

Yeah that’s never going to happen, and for good reason.

SDS

An 88 2017 Alex Claudio flashback would be absolutely filthy

SDS

John Wetteland would be nice. Some people forget that Mariano was the set-up man in the Yankees first WS Championship within the modern era.

I'd also like to see an additional long reliever available earlier in the year. Scott Kamieniecki and Ramiro Mendoza come to mind.

Wasn't aware of this. Agreed. Honestly, I always thought his off the field problems were nose candy related.

They need to fix pitchING before worrying about new pitchERS.

John Franco

Careful. There are men with pitchforks around here that jump to talk like that.. but you couldn't be more right, honestly.

There was a K-Rod card last year that was pretty good IIRC. And a Joe Nathan card in '16 and '17 that were both incredible. It'd be awesome to see them again

Bobby Thigpen

A postseason RP Clayton Kershaw 65 overall with 20 for clutch....

Joe Nathan
Johathan Pabelbon
Dan Quisenberry
Koji Uehara

Hoyt Wilhelm would be cool as a name, but I suppose with him being a knuckleballer it won't happen.
