Mets Legend Doc Gooden was at Steiner Sports at the Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island for an autograph signing with his Mets teammate Darryl Strawberry.
Gooden has had many post game interviews in his day. In what I'm hoping is a first for both of us, I sat down with the superstar himself for a "post-autograph signing interview" on the couches in the Steiner Sports store. Fittingly, the couch we were sitting on had both a Yankees and Mets logo.
We talked about his time with the Mets, his magical stretch from 1984-86 which included an NL Rookie of the Year, Cy Young, Triple Crown and World Series title, his childhood hero growing up, his advice for Mets star pitchers of today like Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, etc.
I apologize for the audio quality. I tried to salvage it the best I could including with subtitles.
