to be fair, the play he made on opening day his first season in the bigs, where he made that throw home from his knees was one of the best i've ever seen in person.

also, let's not kid ourselves...despite some truly memorable years, it's not like we're talking about a long and storied franchise here. i probably can't come up with 50 players more deserving of "all time greatest mets" status.

I don't even know if he's in the top 5 for shortstops overall...let alone top 50 overall players...he's probably in the top 50 over rated MLB players of all time, however...

Yes.

If you didn't see Rey play, you wouldn't see how huge he was to that team with the D.

Rey won three gold Gloves. Other than Hernandez, the Mets haven't had a player earn more than one in 44 years.

I'd rate him 32d in Mets shortstops

1. Harrelson
2. Reyes
3. Ordonez

But I don't think that puts him in my top 50 (next post; will take some thought)

I'd have to say in just a few years, Reyes has already surpassed Harrelson.

Great defense, but putrid offense. Mets have had some pretty good players over the years (even if they found even greater success on another team). Not sure I would put Rey Rey in the top 50. I assume players who have only been with the Mets for one year or less (ie. Delgado, LoDuca) would not be eligible.

I'm sure I'm missing a bunch.

Remember the commercial... Rey Ordonez Human Highlight Reel or film? I think ESPN made it. Ive been searching for it to no avail.

These are not in any particular order...

C) Piazza, Carter, Grote, Stearns, Hundley
1B) Hernandez, Olerud, Milner, Magadan, Kranepool
2B) Backman, Millan, Hunt, Alfonzo, Kent
SS) Harrelson, Reyes
3B) Wright, Hojo, Ventura
OF) Jones, McReynolds, Floyd, Foster, S.Henderson, Agee, Wilson, Dykstra, Strawberry. Staub, Swoboda, Bonilla
SP) Seaver, Gooden, Koosman, Cone, Darling, Fernandez, Leiter, Matlack
RP) McGraw, Orosco, Lockwood, Myers. Benitez, McDowell

That's 46. Okay I'll add Kingman, Bobby Jones, and Turk Wendell.

Anyone I can think of for #50 isn't a slam-dunk better than Rey=O. Whaddayaknow.

Of course, Beltran, Delgado, and Wagner will be upgrading the list soon. Not enough tenure as Mets yet.

quick trivia: which pitcher and position player have the longest current tenure as Mets?













Glavine & Jose

Charlie, I'll grant Cameron, Franco, Reed, and Zeile to my list. Some of the others were one-season wonders even if they played more than one.

No Saberhagen or Ojeda?

No Saberhagen. I saw his Mets career. Nothing special except a good ERA.

Ojeda... great in 86, then hurt a lot.

I'd take Tim Bogar over Ordonez.

Saberhagen's peripherals were great throughout his tenure, especially 1994: 143K, 13BB (incredible)

I think in addition to 1986, 1988 cements Ojeda over Ordonez.

And Glavine's last three years should as well.
