Yesterday, once again Nationals outfielder Willie Harris made a bigger impact in Mets infamy in making a game-saving catch on Rod Barajas. With two outs in the ninth inning, Barajas was up at the plate with the bases loaded. The Mets catcher would eventually hit the ball into left field where Harris had just came in the inning before.
The ball looked as if it could have brought the Mets to a 5-4 victory but just as the ball fell to the ground Harris made a sliding catch for the out to seal the win for the Nationals.
Harris now finds himself among Mets fans as one of their most hated players in MLB. In recent years, the Mets have suffered from many Mets killers and Harris should definitely be considered one now if he was not before yesterday.
There have been many Mets killers in recent years, one of these such players has even named their son after the Mets former stadium, Shea. Since Harris has just put himself amongst the biggest Met killers in recent years I have decided to rank the five biggest thorns in the side of the Mets in recent years.
