Finish the 1984 Gooden Rookie Season by the end of August.
25 games to go. I think I can do it, if I pace myself, and allow for playing other solitaire sport or war games.
Then maybe I can tackle the rest of the 1974 D’Acquisto Rookie Season by Halloween.
May 6, 1984: Astros @ Mets, Shea Stadium
Age and Treachery vs. Youth and Enthusiasm
Final from Shea Stadium:
A complete game shutout for Gooden (10 strikeouts), with Hubie Brooks providing all the offense needed.
The Mets are now 6-0 in games that Gooden starts.
Dwight Gooden is now 4-0 (actual record: 2-2) through those 6 starts.
Next Opponent: Gooden vs. Valenzuela @ Dodger Stadium
