Well, with the selection of Ray Knight last week, our “2 Guys” Team officially resembles the 2013 Mets. There are no outfielders. Now, over the years, we have had a Stork, George Theodore, in the outfield. And once, a dove exploded in front of Kevin McReynolds in our outfield. I’m sure none of us will forget the night Emil Brown patrolled right field for us. Yes there have been great moments and many players to enjoy. In fact, to date, according to the Ultimate Mets site (thanks again Ultimate Mets), 285 players have manned the outfield for the Mets. As we look at who were the toughest, grittiest guys out of that mass of humanity, we wouldn’t mind if our readers culled the herd for us.
I would say some basic ground rules make sense. When I used to play fantasy baseball you needed to play a certain amount of games at the position to qualify. I’m thinking 50 career games in the outfield as a Met, at minimum. And no more than five nominations per voter, we are trying to shorten the list here, thanks.
As we did with our big Hunt/Backman vote ,you can add your nominations right here as comments to this post. We will be accepting nominations until midnight Sunday, after that we will begin working on our final three selections. And to be clear, all nominations will be considered but this is not a vote — the blue ribbon panel will be selecting the three winners from among the nominations.
Great, then get to it.
