It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

1986'd: Doc Celebrates New 2010 Season by Going on a Fender Bender

That's poor, Doc, that's poor. 

Doc Gooden was driving his son to school after a few too many mimosas (?) Tuesday morning. Big problem? He had an "unrestrained five-year-old in the back" and rammed into his neighbor, who's a big fan by the way. 
Gooden was charged with driving under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance, endangering the welfare of a child, driving while under the influence of drugs, DWI with a child passenger, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, reckless driving, failure to keep right and failure to notify change of address regarding driver's license. 
It looks like they wrote him up for everything but a balk. I'd say it was the second worst decision he's made in the recent past, after pitching for the Yankees, but it's a shame and really no laughing matter. The Mets had invited him for Spring training, but with a pregnant, expecting wife at home, Doc declined.


As for truly despicable ex-Mets, this story on Lenny Dykstra's latest can't really be beat.  The guy's a Philly, a irrepressible con-man and now an alleged sexual predator.
