So what number do the Mets retire for Ron Darling?

There had been recent chatter about Donald Trump Supporter Mike Piazza working with the Alumni Crew about retiring more numbers.   While I imagine numbers like 17 would be ahead of Ron….at some point one should look at Ron as both a great Met and a long term broadcaster.

Can you retire 12 when someone is going to wear it for over a decade?

Do you retire 44?

Is Ron not worthy?


Personally, I don’t want them to go bananas with retired numbers.  Team Captain Keith Hernandez deserves it…but I am not ready to retire a number for John Franco…so maybe not.

How about we retire 17 and 5 and then catch our breath.
