Straw-Man to finally return to Mets

The big news of the day is that Darryl Strawberry is finally returning to the team that he came up with.

"There were great expectations in New York. I had great expectations for myself, but I wonder if things would have been different if I'd come up the way (Ken Griffey) Junior did, in a place like Seattle."

Interesting question, although sadly the answer is probably no.

One thing to keep in mind is that Willie coached Strawberry when both were with the Yankees.

I wonder if this is paving the way for Strawberry to eventually take a coaching position with the Mets. It's about time that more prominent members of the '86 team return to the organization.
