7. Tommie Agee

Tommie Agee's time as a Met was short as he only played five seasons in Flushing, but those were five very good seasons. He slashed .262/.329/.419 with 82 home runs and 265 RBI. He also stole 167 bases in 661 games.

Agee had his best year in 1970 when he slashed .286/.344/.469 with 24 home runs and 75 RBI. He tacked on 31 stolen bases in 155 games. He finished 19th in the NL MVP race and won the Gold Glove for center field.

Agee's second best season came in 1969, when he slashed .271/.342/.464 with 26 home runs and 76 RBI. He finished sixth in the NL MVP race and was a key contributor to the Miracle Mets.

In the 1969 NLCS, Agee slashed .357/.438/.857 with two home runs, four RBI, and two stolen bases. In the World Series, he hit another home run and made two unbelievable catches to save runs and help the Mets beat the Orioles in five games.

Agee's tenure with the Mets wasn't long, but it was extremely impactful which is why he was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame in 2002 and is a top ten outfielder in franchise history for sure.
