Countdown to Mets Fantasy Camp 48 Days to Go.

Every year for the last 3 years as Spring gives way to Fall, Mets season merges into NY Rangers season, I have been able to keep the baseball side of my brain occupied with thoughts of Mets Fantasy Camp. This year more so then ever, in the past I have simply gone down to cover the week long camp as a reporter, this season I am headed down to actually participate as a player. Each year I have tried to find unique ways of counting down the days until camp and sharing them with Mets fans, So this year I will do the countdown by Jersey numbers, When possible I will post my 3 favorite Mets who have worn that number, some numbers are harder then others

In the 40's still dominated by pitchers and coaches, but enough here to make a few picks.


#1 Jacob deGrom Last Years Rookie of the year and best hair ever for a Mets Player, although his #48 counterpart Nino Espinosa gave him a run for his money.

#2 Randy Meyers First Met reliever I can remember who threw pure gas. A later #48 Kane Davis had the same potential but it was never realized.

#3 Julio Machado How can I not include a guy who ate Iguanas ?

Joe Nolan

Nino Espinosa

Randy Tate

Juan Berenguer

Ed Glynn

Mel Stottlemyre
