Good News for Mets Fans on Opening Day: Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden End Estrangement
The two biggest stars of the 1986 Mets championship squad seem to be on the same team again.
RCL has covered the straigned Dwight Gooden-Darryl Strawberry relationship before. The two former Mets helped their team win a World Series, but also both struggled with substance abuse. (It ensured neither made the Hall of Fame, for which each once seemed a lock.) Recently the two had a falling out over Strawberry’s allegation Gooden was on drugs again. The two seem to have reconciled, according to a post on Strawberry’s Instagram page:
“Truly grateful for awesome friends bringing me and Doc Gooden back together talking about the real friendship and what life is all about. Today was real healing for me and Doc…God is crazy about people!!! Forgiveness is so we can be made well inside ourselves and God can get all the glory … Blessings!! Always trust God. Proverbs:3:5-6”
