  • 1962-2008 All-Time Mets Team Poll

    An all new, improved, revised, and refurbished All-Time Mets Poll, 1962-2008.

    The poll now includes managers and general managers.

    As before, I've listed each position in alphabetical order, and, in case one or more of your choices isn't listed, there's an "other(s)" option for each position.

    Feel free to vote for as many people as you wish from each position (especially pitchers).

      lol... whaddaya think, a poll like that takes ten seconds? ...Unfortunately, the way the site is set up, the original post shows while the person is still creating the poll. Doesn't really makes sense, but that's the way the coding is set up.
      Put it in the books.

              Skip Lockwood Was The Man !

              Glad to see someone besides me voted for Skip Lockwood. He may be the 'most underated' Met All-Time. I said on here once before somewhere and I'll say it again now - if he and Sparky Lyle switch teams in '77, it's Lockwood that walks home with the Cy Young Award.

              An excellent, excellent closer on some of the most brutal teams ever in MLB history.

                "Glad to see someone besides me voted for Skip Lockwood."

                That'd be me. I agree 100% with your assessment of Skip. THE most underrated New York Mets reliever, bar none. Had he played with the 1986 team, he'd have been remembered as better than Roger McDowell.

                  :blush: You're quite welcome, sir. ...I aims to please.

                  lol... 8 votes and Seaver's already missing one. ...Welp, if the last poll is any indication, he'll probably be missing several when all is said and done. Go figure.

                  Incidentally, I agree with you guys about Lockwood.
                  Put it in the books.

                    All-time Mets Poll

                    Here are my top 3 favorites in each category:

                    GM - Johnny Murphy - Steve Phillips - Al Harazin
                    MGR - Casey Stengel - Bobby Valentine - Gil Hodges
                    C - Jerry Grote - John Stearns -
                    1B - Dave Kingman - John Olerud - John Milner
                    2B - Ron Hunt - Rod Kanehl - Wally Backman
                    SS - Bud Harrelson - Roy McMillan - Elio Chacon
                    3B - Howard Johnson - Ed Charles - Charley Smith
                    LF - Cleon Jones - Frank Thomas - Tommy Davis
                    CF - Tommie Agee - Lenny Dykstra - Mookie Wilson
                    RF - Ron Swoboda - Darryl Strawberry - Joe Christopher
                    SP -Jay Hook - Tom Seaver - Jerry Koosman
                    RP - Tug McGraw - Skip Lockwood - Turk Wendell

                    These choices aren't based on merit, they're just the personal favs of a life long Mets fan that goes back to the Polo Grounds.
                    Can't Anybody Here Play This Game?

                        I do wish posters would explain some of the more unconventional, (being diplomatic), choices.

                        I'm willing to believe the guy who left off Tom Seaver did so by accident, but 6 did not choose Koosman for the starting rotation, so that was no accident. Are these the same that people that voted for Pat Zachery or Steve Tracshel ? I don't understand.

                        Inquiring minds want to know.
