October 3rd, 2012 by slangon

I’ve got to get this up before 4:10. Of course I had to leave right field for last. The Mets have had more right fielders in their history than any other position. Typical. Anyway… In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the New York Mets, I’ve been looking at the primary players at each position […]
