Mets You've Forgotten About

Lots of folks have played for the Mets over the years, a fair number of which I've completely forgotten about.

One of the unheralded joys of wandering around Baseball-Reference.com is rediscovering players I had altogether forgotten about. There are countless players like that. Go look up any early-2000s Mets team and there'll be at least a half-dozen "oh yea, that guy" names on the roster.

In keeping with the giddy thrill of players I forgot were ever on the Mets, I sent out the following Tweet without really thinking much about it.

Fernando Vina, so loathsome on the 2000 Cardinals, was a Met for 150 plate appearances in 1994. I rattled off a few more names, like:

Graeme Lloyd.
James Baldwin.
Kane Davis.
McKay Christensen.

Before I knew it, folks were tweeting their own long-forgotten-but-recently-remembered Mets and the hashtag #MetsYouveForgottenAbout began trending nationwide.

You can see all of the #MetsYouveForgottenAbout tweets across Twitter here, but I'd like to see you turn this comment thread into a list of erstwhile Mets whom you've totally, utterly forgotten about.

Here are a few more to get you rolling:

Royce Ring.
Tim Hamulack.
Felix Heredia.
Kazuhisa Ishii.
