For the most part, 11 has been used by the Mets as a transitional number, or worn by a player one or two seasons at a time. The only exceptions with this number is Wayne Garrett, Frank Taveras, Tim Teufel, Ramon Castro and currently Ruben Tejada. In the 51 seasons the Mets have been apart of the MLB, 1968 and 2002 are the only years 11 wasn't worn by a Mets. Here's all of the Mets that wore 11:
Infielders- Ed Bouchee (62*), Roy McMillan (64-66), Bob Heise (67), Wayne Garrett (69-76^), Lenny Randle (77-78), Frank Taveras (79-81), Tom Veryzer (82), Tucker Ashford (83**), Kevin Chapman (84-85), Tim Teufel (86-91^^), Garry Templeton (91^^), Dick Schofield (92), Aaron Ledesma (95), Tim Bogar (96), Shane Halter (99), Jorge Velandia (00*^-01), Joe McEwing (03-04), Anderson Hernandez (09***), Argenis Reyes (09***), Ruben Tejada (10-present)
Outfielders- Gene Woodling (1962*), Duke Snider (63), Pepe Mangual (76^-77), Vince Coleman (93), Rick Parker (94), Preston Wilson (97), Wayne Kirby (98), Jason Tyner (00*^)
Catchers- Mike Bishop (83**), Ramon Castro (05-09***)
*In 1962 Bouchee wore 11 for 1 month until June when Woodling picked it up
^In 1976 Garrett had 11 until he handed it over to Mangual in July
**In 1983 Bishop wore 11 until it was given to Ashford in May
^^In 1991 Teufel wore 11 until May 31 when it was given to Templeton
*^In 2000 Tyner wore 11 during June and handed it over to Velandia in September
***In 2009 Castro wore 11 for 18 days in May, gave it to Reyes for 23 days in June and July, and it finally ended up with Hernandez in August.
The Mets do not have a player with jersey number 10 on their 2010 40-player roster.
Endy Chavez...Rusty Staub
Endy Chavez and Rusty Staub.
The players below wore #1 for the Padres. The list is current through the 2006 season: Bob Barton, 1970-1972 John Grubb, 1973 Ozzie Smith, 1978-1981 Garry Templeton, 1982-1991 Tony Fernandez, 1992 Luis Lopez, 1993-1994,1996 Carlos Garcia, 1999 Carlos Baerga, 1999 Santiago Perez, 2001 Ramon Vazquez, 2002-2004
Billy Wagner is wearing #13 for the Mets now. A previous fan favorite to wear the number is Lee Mazzilli, during the 1986 World Championship season. Maz came up with the Mets wearing #12, and quickly swapped with John Stearns for #16. He was their great young hope, the Italian Stallion (when Yankee fans used that phrase for Rick Cerone, Met fans got very upset, sort of like how Yankee fans got upset when Billy Wagner used Mario Rivera's "Enter Sandman" song when he came in from the bullpen). But we digress. One of Mets fans only happy moments in in the late 70s was Maz's great All Star game in 1979 (2 plate appearances: game tying homer in the ninth, walk-off-walk against Ron Guidry in the 10th). Other than that, Maz had only limited success, and the Mets traded Maz for Ron Darling and Walt Terrell in 1982. They then traded Walt Terrell for Howard Johnson. They then brought Maz back in 1986, though at this point Dwight Gooden was wearing #16, so Maz took #13. Maz contributed to key rallies in World Series comebacks in Game 6 and in Game 7. Maz's contribution to that Series is far greater if you credit him for part of Ron Darling and Howard Johnson's contributions, since they were acquired for Maz in the first place. Edgardo Alfonso also wore #13. He played in the majors for the Mets from 1995 until 2001.
willie mays Kelvin Torve and Rickey Henderson wore #24 after Mays did
The Number 25 was not used by the Mets in 1970. Amos Otis wore in the number for the World Series Champion Mets in 1969 and Don Hahn wore the number in 1971
one of them is josh thole
There have many pitchers who have worn #35 for the Mets: 2006-2008 Joe Smith 2004-2005 Mike DeJean 2002-2003 David Weathers 1997-2001 Rick Reed 1995-1996 Doug Henry 1993 Kenny Greer 1992 Lee Guetterman 1985 Joe Sambito 1982 Randy Jones 1981 Ed Lynch 1979 Dock Ellis 1974 Randy Sterling 1971 Charlie Williams 1967-1968 Don Shaw 1965 Larry Miller 1962 Ray Daviault
