New York Mets History: Top five players who got away from us

Throughout the history of the New York Mets, there have been many instances of bad moves that were executed by the front office. The organization has done a generally good job of drafting and developing players, but when it comes to deciding who to keep and who to trade, and when to trade, it has been something of a sore spot for the Mets.

As I researched players for this article, I have found there have been many cases of players that have either been drafted or acquired by the Mets, early in the players’ career, but then the organization didn’t show enough patience to complete their development or traded them for older past their prime type players.
