Tom Seaver was justifiably inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame with 98.8% of the vote.  He is equally warranted as our selection for the greatest New York Met of all-time.  Still, even though he spent five and a half seasons with Cincinnati after the “Midnight Massacre Trade” that decimated the Mets, do we ever think of “Tom Terrific” as a Red?

We don’t, but he was still a good one.

In the season that he split between New York and Cincinnati, he had a year good enough to finish third in Cy Young voting while being named an All Star that year and the following one.  He would be an All Star again in 1981, and would lead the National League in Wins in that strike-shortened year.  Fittingly for Mets fans, he was traded back to them after the 1982 season.
