Puppy Avenue 2015: Once again turning the Mets' roster over to the dogs

New, 16 comments

We love puppies. We #LoveTheMets. Let's find cute puppies for all the players on the Mets roster!

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the 6th installment of our Puppy Avenue Mets roster! Puppy Avenue began back in 2010 with a simple idea: what would the Mets roster look like if instead of pictures of the actual players, we used pictures of adorable puppies? Why did we do this? I believe it was mostly because the Mets often tend to be soul-crushing in defeat and puppies are almost always happy and generally loveable. Well, this is the final result! Hopefully it'll make you feel good about the Mets despite their struggles with the bats.

I've taken the best from our "Making of..." fanpost and created the Mets roster. If you contributed a picture below, you will be credited and I thank you for your diligence in this project! Enjoy and let's go Mets!

Welcome to Puppy Avenue!

We begin below with the starting infield. The Puppy Avenue infield cannot start without honorary member Ike Davis, who of course was traded away early last season. He may not be on the Mets anymore but Ike Davis Dog is still the official mascot of Puppy Avenue (thanks to Isles732, as always!).
