  • Which Other Opponent Should the Mets Acknowledge?

    I guess Mo is at the top of that list.

    Maybe Derek Jeter?

    He has a very high career BA against NYM, and he was the 2000 World Series MVP....

      I can't see the Mets "acknowledging" any Yankee player.

      Now that I think about it, for a team to "acknowledge" another player is perhaps the highest honor they can bestow on someone who never played for them. So this kind of a gesture should be reserved for an opponent on a Cal Ripken level.

        Or perhaps Willie Mays, 1962-1971. Every year, the Mets had a Willie Mays Night first at the Polo Grounds, then at Shea. Then he was a was a Met 1972-1979.
        Put it in the books.

          No one. The Chipper situation was unique.

            Then the Mets should immediately start acknowledging Stephen Strasberg and Bryce Harper

              Forgive me, but I don't see the connection.

                The Mets acknowledge every visting player who gets on the field - via public address announcement. With the noble exception of major figures in Mets history making return appearances, that should really be enough.
                Cleon Jones catches a deep fly ball in F. Scott Fitzgerald's Valley of the Ashes, and a second-grader smiles in front of the black and white television.
