Notes:

The Mets have a few good years with some great players. What hurt them was the god-awful teams of the early 80’s and early 90’s. They had a few decent middle infielder but not many stood out, which is why Jefferies is there as a bench player. His 1990 season was one of the best for the Mets. The pitching staff was the same, they had good pitchers but not too many stood out. Bobby Bonnilla, whose name means virtually nothing to most Mets fans even made this team. And on a complete and different note, I hated the Mets in the early 80’s. We called them “pond scum” in St. Louis from 1985-1988. And who could forget Beltran’s called third strike with the bases loaded in 2006. Cruel? Yes. Can I help it? No. Next team up is the Milwaukee Brewers.
