Bottom line: Randy Myers was a rookie who was called up in the second half of the season and used as a late-inning reliever. He finished five of the 10 games he played in, but they were all either blowout wins or losses so he didn’t accumulate any saves.
Myers was not a part of the Mets’ postseason roster, and because of that, he didn’t initially get a ring. But he was awarded one some nine years later after constantly pushing for one from Joe McIlvaine, who was the Mets' general manager at the time and was the Mets assistant GM in 1986.
Myers' time in New York was just the beginning of an impressive major league career that consisted of another World Series ring, four All-Star appearances and leading the league in saves three times.
Despite ranking second all-time in saves among lefties at the time of his last game in 1998, Myers received just one vote for the Hall of Fame and was removed from the ballot.
Myers has returned to his home in the Pacific Northwest and has been heavily involved with his alma mater, Clark College in Vancouver, Washington. Myers helped revive the school’s baseball program, which had been dormant for nearly 20 years and resumed playing in 2011.
