While 66% of First Round picks in the June draft chosen by the Mets reached the majors, only 44% of Second Round picks made it to the show (22 of 50 – 2 picks did not sign and made it to the majors after signing elsewhere). Of the 13 picks the Mets have made since […]

Who do YOU think are the best Mets First Basemen?

Over the Mets 52 seasons, there have been 23 different players who could be classified as “primary” starting First Baseman.
