    Staub gets my vote. He packed more quality into 3+ years as a starter than anyone to date and topped it off 5 years as a pinch hitter deluxe and was a key contributor to the 1973 team.

      Dave Schneck has a vote. Are you serious??

        He is right below Ryan (a guy you can make a case for, though whom I'm not in favor of putting in). Maybe someone clicked the wrong button?

          Can't view the votes, so I'll post mine since I voted for Mays who is definitly a controversial choice.

          Mays
          Staub
          Throneberry

            I ALMOST voted for Mays. Couldn't bring myself to do it, ultimately, but voted for Staub and Hunt.

              I was a little boy when Mays arrived. The impact on our parents was big, but I suppose difficult to explain. It truely married the Mets to our National League past. There was no question at the time that Mays was a Met and had in fact 'come home'. I don't know that this can be said of any other former NY NL player. Hence, my vote for him as a Met HOF'er.

                I voted for Schneck. I always vote for the guys that really deserve it like Hunt or Staub here...

                But let's face it: this isn't Cooperstown. I consider the definition of a Mets Hall of Famer to be a bit different that that of an actual Hall of Famer. One of my big criteria is: is there something essentially "Mets" about the guy? I can't really put my finger on it, but somehow Schneck fits the bill. Maybe it's the name (brings to mind Shlabotnik), or his great beginning that soon faded, but somehow Schneck seems an archetype of many of the Mets' young players of that era - at least the ones they didn't trade away for Peanuts (Joe Shlabotnik pun intended). In addition, I felt like showing some love to a guy whose promise was likely derailed by injuries and service in Vietnam. If it makes anyone feel better, he isn't going to win anyway.

                I also have a tendency to vote for guys I've met and like.

                If we limit the Mets Hall of Fame to actual good players that excelled in a Mets uniform, it's going to be a pretty lonely place.

                If there are posted criteria for voting other than this, let me know.

                Although I'd probably disagree with them.
