The New York Mets organization has had its share of trials and tribulations since Casey Stengel went to battle with an incompetent roster in 1962. Stengel's Mets finished 40-120 in the team's first season of existence—an embarrassing finish even for an expansion team.
But things turned around quickly for the Metsies in the form of a 1969 World Series victory by the Amazins. Since then, the Mets have brought their most diehard fans on a roller coaster of ugly seasons, miraculous seasons and every type of season in between.
Of course, nothing of the sort would have happened without some of the franchise's best players turning out the way they did. Here we pay homage to those players as we compile a Dream Team for the Mets.
