Strawberry’s Book: Drugs, Sex, And The Mets

We all knew there were some shenanagans going on with the Mets of the ’80’s. But Darryl Strawberry’s new book won’t leave anything to the imagination anymore according to Page Six’ Richard Johnson.

There were a few years that we all thought the wild child Mets were out having a grea time while bashing their way to a World Series title in ’86 and LCS in ’88. But that romantic notion came to an end with positive drug tests and behavioral problems shortly thereafter.

Now we get to hear the stories straight from the horses mouth in Darryl’s new book. We’ll hear about gallons of beer, speed freaks, coke heads, and sex in the middle of games.

I think I liked the fantastical notion in my head better than the base reality of the book.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
