Nolan Ryan didn't become Nolan Ryan until after the Mets traded him. George Foster forgot how to play after the Mets traded for him.

No pudge? Would he be #6 or am I forgetting someone?
Fisk is overrated, he played 9 full season's in Boston (Same as Varitek) and 'Tek has better overall numbers (even with this putrid season factored in). Fisk only made the HOF because he played a long time. He should be in the Hall of Longevity not the Hall of Fame.
ok fair enough. He had some good seasons away from Boston too so i think he deserves the hall but don't really care either way.

I always thought David Justice was a cool name. Of course Coco Crisp and Milton Bradley as well.

Very true. All held together by Lou Brown and Charlie Donovan...I'd put Taylor first though. they also mention a Tollison ( "Tollison gives it a ride but just falls short" but didn't get his first name.

I would have picked Ruth but he is more identifiable as a Yankee.
what about Fred Lynn , Jim Rice, Bobby Doerr, Dwight Evans!!

Those are all good choices but you can only pick 5. The next player I would add would be Pedro.

I think Strawberry was better for a longer time than Cleon Jones. Agee wasn't with the Mets very long and if it wasn't for the 2 catches he made in the '69 World Series a lot of people wouldn't even remember him. McGraw was better with the Phillies than the Mets. Koosman might be #6 on that list and Matlack would probably be top 10 or 15. I put Hernandez and Carter on there because I think those 2 guys had more to do with turning a really dead franchise around than anyone else. I might put Bill Buckner on the list too. :lol:
