      I voted. But didn't see Ed Kranepool, Ron Swoboda, or anyone else for that matter from the 69' World Champion club.

          Originally I was going to include Kranepool, Koosman, Grote, Harrelson, McGraw, Stearns, Kingman, Dykstra, Fernandez, etc... but then I thought -"who's gonna vote for them ?"
          Now I know.

          I suppose next up, someone will ask where Glavine, Alomar, Ryan, Henderson, & Torre are ?

            Oopps! I should really read before I vote! I thought its was honoring them in some other way like somewhere at Citi, but not their numbers retired for some reason. I wouldn't have voted for so many names that are up there. Sorry, Thats why I voted for willy, If Jackie is honored at Citi Willy should be.

                I voted for Tom and Mike...but Piazza only after he goes into the Hall of Fame. I was glad to see that Mays got little to no support on a Mets forum.

                  Very surprised at how little support Gil Hodges got. I for one am glad Gil's 14 is retired.

                    Shouldn't Gil count as both a player and manager? He was a starter for the 1962 Mets, hit the first homerun, and managed them to their first 100 win season and World Championship.

                      Why is Jerry Koosman not in the poll ?

                      Unfortunately, too many met fans think the teams history began in 1986.

                          Ed Kranepool
                          Mike Piazza
                          Tom Seaver
                          Darryl Strawberry
                          John Franco

                          Are the one I would vote for...

                          Kranepool owns a ton of hitting records for the Mets and should be included on the list..

                          Piazza and Seaver are pretty much give me's..

                          Strawberry owns most of the hitting records that Kranepool doesnt like homeruns, rbi's, walks and runs...

                          Franco pitched in more games and has more saves than any other pitcher in Mets history...

                            Wouldn't retiring #7 for Steady Eddie be a celebration of the franchise's mediocrity ?

                            Don't we aspire to more than that ?

                              Well he was there when the Mets won the WS

                              He is just such a part of our history as he played more games, had more at bats, had more hits, doubles, and more total bases than any other player in Mets history... And some of these categories he owns the record by a lot...
