I've recently read former Mets' great Rusty Staub's new book, Few and Chosen Mets: Defining Mets Greatness Across the Eras.
The book list the greatest Mets player in each position and gives a bio about all of them and their stats with the Mets. It was a very enjoyable book and I hope all you Mets fans get to read it soon.
But when I was done reading it I wanted to share my opinion on the best Mets of All-Time.
So after a couple days of research and hard decision making, I have come up with my All-Time Mets list and what better way to start it then at the most important position player in baseball: the catcher.
Catchers not only have to bat and field like every other player but they have to call the game. They are the leader on the field and most of the time off.
When the pitcher gets in trouble the catcher needs to calm him down and help him out of the jam. Catchers take more damage then any other fielders. They are the protectors, they are the last line of defense.
The Mets have been very lucky in this position. They have had some great catchers over the years along with two Hall of Famers.
