Countdown to Mets Fantasy Camp 10 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.

Rusty Staub

Yes Le Grand Orange wore #4 when he first played for the Mets but he wore #10 in more games, Without a doubt one of the most professional hitters the Mets ever had. He overcame a lot as Ken Singleton one of the players Rusty was traded for went on to have a very good major league career, But Rusty still was a fan favorite. Rusty was old school before it was a term. He was a gamer as evidenced by the way he gutted out the 1973 World Series after injuring his shoulder in the playoffs against the Reds and somehow he managed to hit over .400 in that World Series.

Rey Ordóñez

Without a doubt the best fielding shortstop the Mets every had, not even close! Great Arm, Great Range, so much fun to watch. While Rey's bat left a lot to be desired, no doubt you would be disappointed if you came to a game and he wasn't in the starting lineup, he was one of the few Mets you watched for how special they played their position .
