The New York Mets have had some of their greatest players come from the catcher position.
From the beginning of Mets history to present day, it is evident that these players are often team leaders.
These catchers also show how the game has changed. Most of the players on this list were lacking offensive power. But it's noticeable that the Mets have evolved from being interested in a more defensive catcher to a catcher who is well-rounded.
Alas, there are steroid users (ahem ahem Hundley, Lo Duca) listed because of their impact on their teams. But of course, fan favorites such as the great Jerry Grote, Gary Carter and Mike Piazza are held in the highest regard.
The rankings are based on how long each player spent with the Mets. Additionally, I explore how they have been able to contribute to the team offensively and/or defensively.
