2013 media guide

That’s the cover of this year’s Mets Media Guide. I was taking a look at it this morning and thought I spotted a curious omission. Before you read any further, take a look and see if you can spot it too…

Here is who is featured on the cover starting at the top and going left to right:

1. Tom Seaver

2. R.A. Dickey

3. Jon Matlack

4. Mike Piazza

5. John Stearns

6. Carlos Beltran

7. Jose Reyes (Nice coincidence!)

8. Gary Carter (An even better coincidence!)

9. Darryl Strawberry

10. Keith Hernandez

11. Dwight Gooden

12. Johan Santana

13. Terry Collins

14. David Wright

Now here’s my question…

Where’s Jerry Koosman?

Let’s leave this to players only for the sake of this argument, but wouldn’t you think Koosman rates over Stearns? (No offense to the Dude.)

If you’re going to include Matlack, shouldn’t you include Kooz too?

Update: Nice catch by our reader Matt, who also spotted another huge omission, Ed Kranepool

Wow, I can’t believe I missed that one…

Anyone else?
