"Sid (Fernandez) is a terrific competitor. He may not seem confident off the field, but he wants to pitch and he wants to win. This spring, a lot of people assumed, and I did, too, that because we had no other left-handed starters that he'd make the team. But he needed work." - New York Mets Pitching Coach Mel Stottlemyre in The New York Times (George Vecsey, 08/26/1984, FERNANDEZ'S STATE OF MIND , Source )

In 1989, Sid Fernandez ( New York Mets ) and Scott Garrelts ( San Francisco Giants ) each had a 0.737 (0.73684) winning percentage, tops in the National League. No New York Mets pitcher since El Sid has led the senior circuit in winning percentage. [ Year by Year Leaders for Winning Percentage ]

Sid Fernandez was the tenth pitcher born in the state of Hawaii to appear in a Major League game, joining Johnnie Williams (1914), Prince Oana (1934), Charlie Hough (1970), Milt Wilcox (1970), Ryan Kurosaki (1975), Doug Capilla (1976), Fred Kuhaulua (1977), Carlos Diaz (1982), and Ron Darling (1983).

The Los Angeles Dodgers drafted Sid Fernandez out of high school in the third round of the 1981 draft . When he was called-up two years later, Tommy Lasorda gave El Sid uniform #50 to honor both his home state and his favorite television show, Hawaii Five-0.

The 49 Greatest Mets [ Link ] was an ESPN article where Sid Fernandez ranked 24th. ESPN wrote, "El Sid was large and in charge. He set a Mets record in 1985, allowing just 5.7 hits per nine innings. The following year he went 16-6 with a 3.52 ERA and 200 strikeouts -- tied with Doc Gooden for the team lead." The record he set wasn't just the best in team history, it was the best in the National League that season, one of three times El Sid led the senior circuit in hits per 9 IP (1988 & 1990).

What do Gary Gentry (RHP / 1969, 1971, 1972) and Sid Fernandez (LHP / 1985, 1988, 1989) have in common? They are the first two Mets pitchers to each field 1.000 in three different seasons.
