    Some tough choices but

    C-Gary Carter over Piazza- close call but Carter played better defense
    1B-Keith Hernandez over Olerud
    2B-Edgardo Alfonzo- his best years were there- not much else to chose from
    SS-Jose Reyes over Buddy Harrelson- yes its probably too early for it
    3B-Howard Johnson- In another year, it will be Wright
    CF-Mookie Wilson- in part for Game 6- Maybe Beltran some day
    LF-Cleon Jones- Not too many good choices here
    RF-Darryl Strawberry- Sigh. A fraction of what should have been

    SP-Tom Seaver- Nuff said
    SP-Dwight Gooden- See Strawberry
    SP-David Cone- Some great years
    SP-Al Leiter- Very solid
    SP-Jerry Koosman- Very solid

    Honorable Mention to Ron Darling, Sid Fernandez and Jon Matlack

    RP-Tug McGraw
    RP-Jesse Orosco
    RP- Roger McDowell
    RP-John Franco
    RP- Randy Myers

    Honorable mention to a good swing man- Terry Leach

    I left out guys like Nolan Ryan and Rick Aguleria who really bloomed after leaving the METs

    Oh man, no Nolan Ryan? I know he didn't really come into his own until after he was traded, but his first 5 years in the league were as a Met. Including the time he struck out three Dodgers on 9 pitches. In my heart, he is a Met, even if he did not go into the HOF as one. Nolan was the first of a long line of awesome pitchers that the Mets traded away before they could hit their full potential. Almost like a punchline: You want to get a great pitcher? Trade the Mets for one of theirs that shows potential, and that potential will be realized once he gets to your team.

    1B: Keith Hernandez -- over John Olerud
    2B: Edgardo Alfonzo -- his best seasons, '99 and '00, he played there
    3B: Howard Johnson -- or Robin Ventura
    SS: Bud Harrelson -- yes, still, but it's likely to be Reyes in time
    LF: Cleon Jones -- sorry, McReynolds, I prefer Cleon
    CF: Tommie Agee -- see below for Mookie Wilson
    RF: Darryl Strawberry
    C: Mike Piazza -- even though I love Gary Carter. I could be happy with Jerry Grote if I wanted a defensive C.

    Tom Seaver (HOF)
    Dwight Gooden
    Jerry Koosman
    David Cone
    Jon Matlack -- over Bob Ojeda or Sid Fernandez for another lefty. Ron Darling also ranks high for me.

    Tug McGraw
    Jesse Orosco -- I'd rather have him or Tug over John Franco
    Armando Benitez -- he'll be fine as a setup man with Tug or Jesse closing
    Roger McDowell
    Terry Leach -- my favorite long man ever for the Mets

    Bench :
    I want flexibility, not an 11-man staff, thank you.
    This is meant to be a bench -- good role players, more than starters serving as backups. There are lefty and righty bats, switch-hitters, speed, contact, and power. Who needs a defensive replacement at 1B when you have Keith Hernandez?

    1B-3B: Dave Magadan
    2B-SS: Doug Flynn -- for his glove
    C: Todd Pratt
    OF: Mookie Wilson
    OF-1B: Lee Mazzilli
    Utility: Joel Youngblood
    PH: Rusty Staub
