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 our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 New York Mets.
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.
The Mets looked at one time like they could make the playoffs in 2021, but faltered at the end, though we did see some movement in our top 50 from active Mets. We also have one new entry to our list.
As always, we present the top five, which sees one significant change. Jacob deGrom has passed David Wright for #3 on our greatest Mets ever.
1. Tom Seaver
3. Jacob deGrom
4. David Wright
You can find the entire list here.
The new entry is 2019 Rookie of the Year, Pete Alonso, who debuts at #49.
The alterations remove Juan Lagares from the list.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
