Doc Gooden and Darryl Strawberry Are Friends Again
Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry have ended their public feud from last summer and attended Monday’s Mets opener together at Citi Field.

Gooden posted a picture of himself with Strawberry and former Mets closer John Franco on Twitter, and Strawberry retweeted it.

This came a day after both Gooden and Strawberry turned to social media to say they’re no longer at odds. “Life is too short for madness,” Gooden wrote on Twitter.

Gooden, reached by phone, declined to comment. Strawberry hasn’t returned messages seeking comment.

The two former Mets stars from the 1980s feuded last August when Strawberry publicly accused Gooden of a drug relapse. Gooden denied it at the time, then said during a surprise appearance at Mets spring training that he no longer was angry with Strawberry.

“Maybe one day we get together and talk, but right now’s not the time,” he said.
This is good news as these two will always be attached via their long history together in New York sports lore. Still, if and when there's another time Strawberry thinks Doc using drugs, hopefully he'll go to Gooden privately instead of through the press.
