So That’s Why They Always Go in the Clubhouse!

Sure the big former Mets player news today is the revelation that Roberto Alomar has AIDS, was raped as a teenager and is now being sued, and while that story is interesting and crazy, I’m not here to talk about it right now. Instead, I wanted to point out some of the information excerpted from Darryl Strawberry’s upcoming April tome. For example, to highlight the partying ways of the 80s Mets, he (or more accurately, his ghostwriter) says that “We were the boys of summer. The drunk, speed-freak, sneaking-a-smoke boys of summer. [An] infamous rolling frat party . . . drinking, drugs, fights, gambling, groupies.”

For the Mets, beer “was the foundation of our alcoholic lifestyle. We hauled around more Bud than the Clydesdales. The beer was just to get the party started and maybe take the edge off the speed and coke.” Ah the good ol’ days.

The most difficult part of being a Met then was that you had to go out and “tear up your best bars and nightclubs and take your finest women . . . The only hard part for us was choosing which hottie to take back to your hotel room. Lots of times you . . . picked two or three.”

The action with the ladies wasn’t limited to just on the field though, Strawberry talks about how team members picked out girls from the stands for quickies. He once watched a pitcher take an extra friendly fan to a private room for oral sex: “I was jealous. When I saw her heading back to her seat, I gave her a sign. She smiled, turned right back around, and met me in that same little room . . . I had to be quick and run back out on the field.” Talk about sloppy seconds right! Also, I don’t know if I should be impressed with her technique that she was able to quick enough, or disappointed in Darryl for not having better stamina, after all, he was a highly conditioned athlete…

That’s not all the fun being held, often during the games. Another incident happened when “I was in the clubhouse, having one last quickie with this cute little Florida girl. Charlie Samuels, the equipment manager, came in and caught us. He just stood there shaking his head while I finished up.” That’s great, but um, Charlie, what are you doing STANDING THERE WATCHING DARRYL GET HIS GROOVE ON. C’mon Chaz, give the guy a little room and privacy right? Sure there’s a game going on but Darryl’s gotta bust a nut first, I think we can all respect that…

Sign Our Petition!

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
