Most popular Mets pages on Baseball-Reference

What are the most popular Mets players and teams on Baseball-Reference?

The irreplaceable Baseball-Reference keeps track of the most viewed player and team pages since the site's launch in 2000, linked here. The top 200 are listed. Some big names top the list (Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, Babe Ruth), as do some famous teams (1998 Yankees, 2004 Red Sox, 2001 Mariners). Where do Mets players and teams rank?

First, the most popular players:

Some notes:

  • There you have it, R.A. Dickey > Tom Seaver
  • Jeff Francoeur and several other saber lightning rods appear (J.A. Happ, Joe Saunders, Andre Dawson).
  • Lucas Duda, Dillon Gee, and Mike Nickeas are among a crew of players on the list who made their MLB debut in 2010. I'm not sure what that's about.
  • Edgar Renteria is the most surprising player in the top ten.

Now, the most popular Mets teams:

Nothing really stands out here -- the notable seasons in Mets history are present. Maybe 1998 and 2001 are a little surprising. The 1986 Mets are the highest ranked non-Yankees squad. Carry on with your Saturday evening.
