Lovely tribute to Gary Carter before the Met game today. Surprised that they didn't formally retire his number, but they've already effectively done it - #8 has never been issued since his time - so I guess that's enough. (Plus they may be saving it for when they retire #31.)
Believe it or not, not everyone watches Mets games, so the vast majority of people have no clue what you're talking about.
(The Mets took BP and warmed up wearing #8 Carter jerseys, today.)
Although the Mets hid the retired numbers in the PARTY CITY DECK instead of putting them on the blue front wall. Fuck the Wilpons, always and forever.
