PostHeaderIcon Who Are the Five Greatest Pitchers in NY Mets History?

This is a great question and by far very easy to answer. I am going to start with my all time favorite New York Mets pitcher, Mr. Dwight “Doc” Gooden. I remember watching him playing when I was a wee child living in New Jersey. That man through a wicked ball. He was amazing! He was a key player in The Mets winning their 1986 World Series Championship. He was also only nineteen years old when he won The Cy Young Award.

Mr. Tom Seaver is a historic figure when it comes to the New York Mets.He was signed as an amateur pitcher in 1966. He received three Cy Young awards in his lifetime. He is famous for leading his team to its first World Series Championship title ever!

In 1966, left handed pitcher, Jon Matlock was drafted to the Mets. This amazing pitcher was known for his shutouts and goes down in Mets history as one of the best.

Jerry Koosman was a fantastic pitcher for the Mets, he is tied for second with Jon Matlock for the most shut outs in team history.

Lastly, we cannot forget David Cone. He still holds the record for strike-outs per nine innings to this day.

Go Mets!
