Mets Stat of the Day: Nick Franklin's place in Mets history

New, 29 comments

Where would Nick Franklin's 2013 season in Seattle rank in Mets shortstop history?

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

We have looked at this before with Stephen Drew. The Mets don't have a rich history of shortstops outside of Jose Reyes and Bud Harrelson. Although Nick Franklin played a majority of his games at second base last season for Seattle, he is rumored to be a potential fit at shortstop for the Mets. Where would he fit historically had his bWAR of 2.3 in 2013 been in a Mets uniform playing shortstop?
