Time for a Random Met -- Dave Telgheder

No game today, so let's have some fun and take a blast from the past with none other than former Mets hurler. Dave Telgheder Stats

Dave was with us 3 years, most notably in 1994 when he pitched in 24 games and finished the year with a 6-2 record with a 4.76 ERA. His role was limited the next two years and signed on as a free agent with the Oakland A's, and spent 3 years in Oakland before fading out of baseball. He signed with the Indians in 1999, but never made it back to the show.

How many of you out there remember Dave? Many people pronounced his last name as Tail-Gaiter. If there are any die hard fans with a Telgheder shirt, let me know!

Last I heard he was doing some announcing for a minor league team on Cable TV.

Great post. When sports players retire, they either become announcers or nobodies. Glad he became an announcer.
