Last night I asked: If the Mets had to retire one number this year, which one and why? Here are the answers...
- @fscker said: keith hernandez or gary carter. I'm going to lean towards carter becuase he's in the HOF.
- @JD1877 said: Piazza. The 90's were sooo bad but he carried them to the WS. Perhaps the greatest position player in team history.
- @sdn16182 said: #31 mike piazza because he made them respectable again and carried them for years and to a world series
- @letsgoduke said: 17 for good old keith. or 31 for obvious reasons.
- @jrobelen said: Mets should retire Gary Carter's 8 before any other, considering so many NY fans believed he earned his HOF cap here.
- @Mike_Peters said: ...31 duh
- @metgirl4ever said: i'm biased but pick # 31-fell in luv w/baseball & b/came Mets fan n late 90s & he was/is my fav-despite going blonde
- @BkCyclones said: 17, of course, for Keith Hernandez, the best defensive player ever for the Mets, a great clutch hitter, and THE captain!
