4. Darryl Strawberry

Like Dwight Gooden, the story of Darryl Strawberry should have been greater, but we know the drug issues that he had that affected his career.  Still, it cannot be forgotten what a major star that Strawberry was and the incredible athleticism that he displayed on the field.

Our Top 50 All-Time New York Mets are now up

Yes we know how slow a process this is!

It has been awhile since we uploaded our last Top 50 players of a major franchise, but we are ready to do so again with a look at the greatest players in New York Mets history.

For one of the most popular franchises of Major League Baseball, the actual success of the organization is not that strong with only two World Series wins to their credit. 

The entire list of our Top 50 New York Mets can be found here, but in the meantime (as we always do) the top five are listed below.

  1. Tom Seaver
  1. Dwight Gooden
  1. David Wright
  1. Darryl Strawberry
  1. Jerry Koosman
Please note that this list is based on accomplishments up to the end of the 2016 Season. 

Up next will be a very young franchise from the NBA, the Toronto Raptors.

Our All-Time Top 50 New York Mets have been revised

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity.  As such, we are very happy to present the first revision of our top 50 New York Mets of all-time.

As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following: 

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National League. 

3. Playoff accomplishments.

4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

This is the first time that we have revised this specific list, which was first put up in 2016, and there are many changes, one of which affecting the top five.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories, which has altered the rankings considerably.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2019 Season.

The complete list can be found herebut as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

1. Tom Seaver

 

2. Dwight Gooden

 

3. David Wright

 

4. Darryl Strawberry

 

5. Jacob deGrom

The top four remains unchanged, but DeGrom ascent was astronomical, as he was at #40 when we put out our first Mets list in 2016.  Two straight Cy Youngs will do that!

Beyond DeGrom, the other significant jump was Noah Syndergaard, who jumped from #50 to #31.
