Strawberry would make the All-Star game in 1984 for the Mets in his first full season, hitting 26 HR, 97 RBI, 27 SB and batting .251. By 1987 Strawberry had reached his full potential blasting 39 HR with 104 RBI and 36 SB (.284) followed in 1988 when he hit 39 National League leading HR with 101 RBI's and a .269 to come in 2nd in MVP voting. In 1990, he had his 3rd and final 30+ HR season when he hit 37 HR, 108 RBI's and batted .277 to come in 3rd in MVP voting. In all Darryl Strawberry would make the All-Star team 8 times in his Major League career to easily take over as the all time best player ever to come out of Met Park. While that killer lineup was quite spectacular, the pitching rotation featured a returning Ron Darling (10-9, 4.02) and a fantastic Walt Terrell (10-1, 3.12). Terrell would become trade bait and be sent to the Tigers for HR superstar Howard Johnson. His best season came in 1987 when he went 17-10 for Detroit. Darling of course would remain after coming over from Texas and made the All-Star squad in 1985 when he posted a 16-6, 2.90 for the Mets followed in 1986 with a 15-6, 2.81 and finally a terrific 17-9, 3.25 in 1988 becoming one of the best #2 pitchers in baseball behind Doc Gooden. Darling like many Mets was continually overlooked for the All-Star squad and even though he would become an "All-Star", it would only be one time. Darling most certainly deserved to be in at least 3 more Mid-Summer Classics if you compare his stats with the other All-Stars of that time. This rotation and the lineup with Strawberry, Rajisch, Clint Hurdle and Wally Backman would just eat up the International League and win the IL Championship for the 2nd straight season and their 4th all-time at Met Park.
