Things Get Testy At Mets' All-Time Team Presentation As Tom Seaver Asks Darryl Strawberry If He's Wearing Handcuffs

Sunday night's Mets All-Time Team gala turned awkward when Tom Seaver made reference to Darryl Strawberry's criminal past by asking, "You don't have any handcuffs on your wrists, do you?"

The retort came after Strawberry attempted to answer a question from the audience about who would win in a battle between the '69 and '86 Mets, concluding that "I'd like to get a piece of that with my Louisville Slugger."


Seaver, whose behavior one attendee described as "drunk and surly," drew uncomfortable laughs from the crowd as Strawberry mostly ignored the blast. (Seaver's appearance on TV during the Mets game Sunday also drew questions from viewers as to whether he was drunk.) You can view the complete exchange from SNY here.
