With the position by position WAR statistics coming up now, I got to thinking. Sometimes, it's not about how a player performs that dictates how much you like them. With that in mind, set a lineup consisting of your all-time favorite Mets. I'm going from 1994 on, because those are the only teams I know.
C: Mike Piazza. Could it be anyone else?
1B: John Olerud. For the helmet.
2B: Edgardo Alfonzo. My all-time favorite Met, Fonzie was awesome.
SS: Jose Reyes. For pure excitement
3B: Robin Ventura. Not David Wright? Yup. For the Piazza impersonation.
LF: Cliff Floyd. Spoke his mind, bright spot on some shitty teams.
CF: Carlos Beltran. Easily the best, only memorable one.
RF: Benny Agbayani. For the walk-off
Bench: Todd Pratt (For the NLDS), Rey Ordonez (For the backhand), Endy Chavez (For the catch), Joe McEwing (For being Super Joe), Tsuyoshi Shinjo (For the hop)
SP: Rick Reed (for consistency), Al Leiter (for breaking all those bats), Johan Santana (for being awesome), John Maine (for not being a cross dresser), Jae Seo (for an awesome stretch in 2005)
RP: Turk Wendell (for everything), Bruce Chen (for the 9/11 game), John Franco (for being pure New York), Dae-Seung Koo (for owning Randy Johnson), Kane Davis (for having an awesome name), Chad Bradford (for scraping the dirt)
Manager: Bobby Valentine. For the glasses and mustache
