    I'm still going with "none of the above," for no one remaining on the list, imho, did nor has done anything which merits induction.
    Put it in the books.

      Also going with "None", nobody was there long enough/did anything too special.

          Either not there long enough (HoJo) or just didn't do much (Conti, Stearns).

            This time I am going with none of the above as although I gave the benefit of the doubt to these coaches in the past none of them are a no brainer.

              See above for the logic behind my none of the above vote.

                I'd like to argue that Stearns did more for the organization in a coaching/managing role than some of the others we have elected (Stengel and McMillian spring to mind). Unfortunately, I just don't have a enough proof that he or many of the other coaches actually made an impact. Therefore I vote NTA.

                  Too bad Chip Hale hasn't been around long enough. Imho, Chip's one of the best thirdbase coaches the Mets have ever had. I'd been thinking he was good all month, but last night's pinpoint instructions to Pagán reinforced my opinion. If he sticks around and continues to remain incredibly on top of the moment, he'd get my unwavering support if this process ever takes place again.

                    Milla,my friend,I couldn't have said it better myself.I am glad Chip is not the Braves third base coach otherwise Escobar would have scored in
                    yesterday's name and not have that meltdown which is a gift for us that I'll gladly take.That play could have been the difference maker instead
                    of us winning the game but obviously I'm glad it worked out the way it did as it's another win in the ledger.
