Even though the last twenty years haven’t included a championship, some of the greatest New York Mets ever have suited up for the franchise.
There have been many greats to put on the New York Mets uniform and many fan favorites. The franchise has seen players such as Darryl Strawberry, Doc Gooden, Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Gary Carter the list goes on.
Each Mets great gave memories that we as fans will never forget whether it was bringing a World Series to Flushing or just bringing pure dominance to the club. The Mets history has seen Cy Young winners, Rookie of the Year winners, and batting title champs.
Some of these we have even seen in recent times. Since 2000, it has been mostly a dark period for the Mets. They did make two World Series appearances in 2000 and 2015 but they have only seen the postseason four times in that time frame; one being an elimination in a one-game Wild Card round.
During these times we also have seen many great memories from certain players. Players that were happy to be a New York Met and gave the crowds at Shea Stadium and Citi Field moments they will never forget.
Some fan favorites of the 2000s are players such as Wilmer Flores, Endy Chavez, Paul Lo Duca, Johan Santana, and Curtis Granderson. These players were not perennial all-stars while being on the Mets but they played hard every game and gave fans a reason to cheer for them.
Yes, I know that small list may turn heads but I never said they were great. Now here we are going to take a look at the greatest Mets at each position since 2000.
