Tom Seaver: The Last Icon

Tom Seaver: The Last Icon

Tom Seaver: The Last Icon

We do a Mets-centric show tonight, as Steven Travers, author of a new book called “The Last Icon: Tom Seaver and His Times.” 

We will discuss Seaver’s career, learn about him personally, and see how he rates versus the greatest pitchers of all-time.

Later in the show I will discuss why the Mets should retire Gary Carter‘s number with Jon Springer of Mets By the Numbers.

Also hear me discuss Mike Piazza‘s comments on MSG about wearing a Mets hat in the Hall of Fame.
