New York Mets: The Top 10 Hitters Ever

Although they have always been overshadowed by the Bronx Bombers, the New York Mets have possessed their fair share of baseball's greatest, especially in recent times.

The Mets offense struggled during most of the 1960s until it all of a sudden became clutch in 1969, when they won their first World Series.

The offense was better but still inconsistent during the 1970s. When the Mets won, they were hitting, but during the latter years in which they were a losing team, the hitting was not the same.

In the 1980s, the Mets were consistently hitting well in what was probably their best offensive decade. The 1990s offense was weak but kept getting stronger each year. After the 2000 season, though, the offense was no longer a force until 2006-2008, when the Mets started contending for the playoffs again.

As a result, all 10 of the Mets' greatest hitters are from the 1980s to the present day. This is what the list looks like.
