Have you ever heard of a true Yankee?
They are player like Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Don Mattingly among others. They are the players who have played for the Yankees their whole career. When you think of them, you think of the Yankees.
Now, have you ever heard of a true Met?
There's only one, Ed Kranepool. He played all 1853 games of his career as an Amazin' Met. He played with the inaugural '62 Mets, the '69 World Championship Team and the '73 NL Champions in his 18 year career.
Kranepool never put together huge numbers like Olerud or Delgado but he was consistent and later on in his career, a team leader. In '69, Kranepool put together 11 home runs, 49 RBI with a .238 BA and hit a homer in his only game in the World Series.
Kranepool's best season came in '75 when he hit four homers, drove in 43 runs and batted .323 but you could argue that '76 (.292/10/49) or '77 (.281/10/40) were just as good or better.
Kranepool isn't on this list for his accomplishments on the field, in the batter's box or for his leadership, he's here because he's the closest thing to a Mickey Mantle the Mets have ever had. He even wore No. 7!
