Amazin Bracket: (3) Darryl Strawberry vs. (14) Ray Knight

(3) Darryl Strawberry – Mets all-time leader in home runs and wRC+ among those players who have played at least 500 games played. First Mets position player to win Rookie of the Year. Hit key homers in NLCS, and he still has not completed his home run trot from Game 7 of the World Series. Second Mets player to have a 30/30 season. Did things we never saw a baseball player ever do like hitting the roof in Olympic Stadium. In the top 10 in nearly every career and rookie category in Mets history.

(14) Ray Knight – MVP of the 1986 World Series. Was part of the Game 6 rally and drove in the winning run in Game 7. Fiery leader and player who was quick to both incite and join brawls for Mets teams who came to beat you in any way, shape, or form. Many pinpoint his leaving the Mets as one of the reasons the team never won another World Series.
