Mets Card of the Week: Baseball goes to the movies

Mets Card of the Week: 1985 Roger McDowell

All-time Mets one-year wonder All-Star team

In honor of One Hit Wonder day, I went through and dug up some of the best Mets “one-season” wonders and formed a sort of “All-Star” team. Many of these players went on to have successful career post Mets, but we are only counting Mets seasons.
