Jeff Conine edged out Dontrelle Willis as the "Best Marlin Ever."

Today, the New York Mets are up to bat.

What?! No Cleon Jones? (Finished his career on the south side).

No Black Cat?

Should Bill Buckner be on this list?

First name I think of with the Mets is Dwight Gooden.

I think of his drug dealer. Gooden and Strawberry never fulfilled their potential.

Tom Seaver is the obvious choice, even if he pitched his no-hitter with the Reds and won his 300th game with the White Sox.

Not me . . . although I might have thought of Gooden for this ballot before I thought of Franco . . .

08-10-2006, 12:26 PM
Seaver, but how many years did Franco spend with the Mets?

No Chico Escuela?

I wanted to vote for Tug McGraw because when he was asked what he thought of artificial grass his reply was that he never smoked it. The only thing that stopped me was the 311 wins by Seaver.

08-10-2006, 02:26 PM
Seaver by a landslide.

You have to go with Seaver for best Met. They called him "the Francise".

No love for Bud Harrelson? I believe he was the only Original Met on the 1969 team.

Where's the love for Howard Johnson?

Tom Seaver was truly a great player. He turned around a franchise almost all by himself. I would have liked to be around him when someone told him that our White Sox picked him up.

"My job isn't to strike guys out, its to get them out, sometimes by striking them out." - Tom Seaver

Seaver was a great player.

At this point in the voting, this is where the check mark would appear next to his name and the news sites would project him as the winner.

Tom Terrific!

I'd write in Ron Swoboda, because of his exceedingly cool name.
