13. Cliff Floyd

Cliff Floyd signed with the Mets in the 2002 offseason. He was signed to provide solid play in left field as well as key veteran leadership. David Wright has raved about Floyd's impact on him and his career many times in interviews.

In his four years with the Mets Floyd slashed 268/.354/.478 with 81 home runs and 273 RBI. Floyd had a very strong first three years with the Mets. His best season came in 2005.

That 2005 season was one of the best in Floyd's career. He slashed .273/.358/.505 with 34 home runs and 98 RBI. He also stole 12 bases and led the league in outfield assists with 15.

Floyd did regress the following season, only playing in 97 games hitting just .244 with 11 home runs. While he slowed down a bit, he did catch the final out of the game that clinched the 2006 NL East Division title.

Floyd's left handed swing was a thing of beauty and made his at bats a must watch. He hit some towering home runs in his time in Queens.

Floyd's career moments were elsewhere, mainly in Florida, but he did play well enough as a Met and provide a big enough impact in the clubhouse to warrant a spot on this list.
