In part two of this 13-part series about the greatest Mets of all time, we look at the 10 best General Managers in franchise history. Sandy Alderson was hired to become the Mets' 12th official GM shortly after the 2010 season. Now is a wonderful time to look back on all of the other general managers in franchise history.

The Mets have long been known for making aggressive trades that more often than not have ended up poorly for the team. Trades such as Nolan Ryan for Jim Fregosi, Tom Seaver for Doug Flynn, Pat Zachry, etc, Lenny Dykstra and Roger McDowell for Juan Samuel, Jeff Kent for Carlos Baerga and more recently, Scott Kazmir for Victor Zambrano were all terrible moves that fans will never forget.

However, in other moments, some of the Mets general managers have made brilliant trades and decisions which ultimately brought a decent amount of success for the Mets. Nonetheless, in the end, just about all of these general managers made a bad move or two that ultimately led to their firings.

To be honest, not all of these General Managers (mostly the bottom three) even deserve to be mentioned as part of a Top 10 list, but if one were to be created, it would probably look something like this.

Here are the top 10 General Managers in Mets history: The good, the bad and the ugly.
