The Mets Dropped the Ball on Retiring Gary Carter's Number

Last night I listened to Lori Rubinson on WFAN interview reporter Bob Klaplisch about Gary Carter.  I agree with Mr. Klapisch that the Mets should have retired #8 shortly after Gary's illness was revealed.  He was the heart and soul of the 1986 championship team and should have been duly honored while he was living.

The issue of retired numbers is arguable since some sports teams limit the number of retired numbers while others do not.  I hope the Mets will retire #8 this season and think hard about honoring other Met players of the past.
