While reviewing the Mets transactions during the '80s, I couldn't believe the abundance of trades that favored the Mets during that period.
Between the trades and the successful draft picks, Frank Cashen turnaround a fallen club and created a World Series Champion.
Hired by Nelson Doubleday in 1980, Cashen's first move was to hire a well known PR company to change the team's perception.
The hired company was behind "The Magic Is Back" slogan which aired on commercials, showing past stars.
This slide show will take a look at the starters who formed the '86 Mets and list how they were obtained.
Hope you enjoy.
