Today in Mets History Flashback 1985 Doc Gooden wins his 20th

Doc Gooden beat the Padres on this date back in 1985 to become the youngest player ever to reach 20 Wins

Gooden was only 20 years, nine months, and nine days .

Almost seems like yesterday that Doc was filling Shea Stadium. What could have been a Hall of Fame career wasn't meant to be .

I remember having the pleasure of being in the K corner in 1987(?). He was an electric player that burned out much too quickly. His deamons were more powerful than his fastball.
