Ron Darling said ( about Aaron Loup ) : “I’m a big believer in versatility of arms in the bullpen,” “Arm angles, versatility and great stuff, and certainly Loup gives them that. The Mets’ pitching is set up in a very Metsian way. They’ve always been a pitching-first kind of organization, and while I don’t think that will be the strength of the team this year, the pitching should be able to shoulder the load, because the offense behind them should be good enough” External link

Ron Darling said ( about Zach Britton ) : "I don't know if not using Zach is the tipping point for managers, but I do know it's a tipping point for people who view the game," "People who have made those decisions have always thought about, or may for many seasons, always thought about keeping your closer and if you took a lead, he'd save it. But the way the game is viewed now by others — I don't even know if it's always the right way — there's very little patience for a manager who doesn't use one of his great weapons in a postseason game. I think that's the prism that we're all looking at it now" External link

He had a better year that I watched with my own eyes — one of the greatest years I've ever seen. Historic, call it whatever you want. I just know that he was dominant against baseball's hitters, and whenever you see someone who's dominant and can't be touched, that's something for a baseball nut like me to find incredibly noteworthy" External link

Ron Darling writes : “Lenny was leading off for us that night, as he did most nights when he was in the lineup, and as Oil Can was taking his final warmups on the mound, Lenny was in the on-deck circle shouting every imaginable and unimaginable insult and expletive in his direction—foul, racist, hateful, hurtful stuff,” “I don’t want to be too specific here, because I don’t want to commemorate this dark, low moment in Mets history in that way, but I will say that it was the worst collection of taunts and insults I’d ever heard—worse, I’m betting, than anything Jackie Robinson might have heard, his first couple times around the league” External link

Ron Darling said ( about Zach Britton ) : "I don't know if not using Zach is the tipping point for managers, but I do know it's a tipping point for people who view the game," "People who have made those decisions have always thought about, or may for many seasons, always thought about keeping your closer and if you took a lead, he'd save it. But the way the game is viewed now by others — I don't even know if it's always the right way — there's very little patience for a manager who doesn't use one of his great weapons in a postseason game. I think that's the prism that we're all looking at it now" External link

Ron Darling said : "It's a shame that he's not up for all these major awards because in 1992, I was on the Oakland A's ballclub when Dennis Eckersley won the Cy Young and the MVP, and Zach had a better year," "That, to me, is how you put it in perspective. He had a better year that I watched with my own eyes — one of the greatest years I've ever seen. Historic, call it whatever you want. I just know that he was dominant against baseball's hitters, and whenever you see someone who's dominant and can't be touched, that's something for a baseball nut like me to find incredibly noteworthy" External link

Ron Darling said : "With Ichiro and the way he plays, would it be judged fairly by the scouts and the people who ran the game back in that day?" "You could see this discussion happening: 'You can't put him out there -- a corner outfielder has to be someone who hits it out of the ballpark.' You know that discussion would happen" External link

Ron Darling said : "We do have success stories in the major leagues with people reaching it at 26 or 27," "But because of starting so late, they will never have a Hall of Fame career. That's the reality of it: it might take you a while to get to the majors and, though you might be great, because you start so late you have no chance of reaching the Hall of Fame. But Ichiro's going to do it" External link
