It's a list of every Mets regular-season walk-off (minus the "asterisk" game), indexed by player, from 1962 to 2005. The information was compiled by someone with major "Retrosheeting" skills and is part of a site that contains not only a list of walk-offs, by player, by team, but a great deal more entertaining information.

Enjoy, but not too much!!

Those who Chase the Mets know...That since hit streaks will be talked about a great deal these next 3 days (see Chase Utley, 35 games, ongoing) we can tell you that the only Mets player to have a walk-off hit in the midst of a hitting streak lasting 20 or more games is Cleon Jones, whose 14th inning walk-off triple (a one of a kind occurrence in Mets history) beat the Phillies on September 10, 1970. The hit extended his hit streak to 18 games. It would conclude at a then-club record, since broken, 23 games.

A walk-off hitting-streak question: has a player ever had a hitting streak end when he was due to bat in the 9th but a batter before him wont he game with a walk-off?

Yes, that's how luis castillo's 35-game hit streak ended...

Awesome headline! And true. This will always be MWO headquarters.

Maybe our esteemed host can help out the publisher of the list, in updating the 10/3/99 entry "of unknown play". All true Mets fans know that was the game that sent us to the play-offs in 1999 at Shea. Piazza at the plate, ball goes to the backstop (PB or WP I am not sure, though my money's on WP.

Also noticed that it has been some time since we won a walk off without an RBI.

In total games we would break the record either late this year or early next. But our MWO host will likely have the number soon.

Mets Top 100 Home Runs: From No. 76 (Alex Ochoa) to No. 80 (Dom Smith)

In 2009, I did a project for my website, Mets Walk-Offs and Other Minutiae, celebrating the best home runs in Mets history. I selected the top 60 regular season home runs and the top 15 postseason home runs. The reason I picked 60 was because it represented the top 1% of home runs in Mets history (and 15 just felt right for postseason, giving us 75 overall).
This was fun to do, but it was imperfect. I had one egregious omission. I tended to favor oddities.
It’s time to give that project an update. And why not do it as a top 100?
The Mets have hit 7,671 regular season home runs. The top 80 represent about the top 1%. And the top 20 postseason home runs get us to an even 100 to celebrate.
Come along for the ride. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the reminiscing. 
Hopefully you’ll find it Amazin’.

Cliff Notes

Alright, so it's 2 days later and the challenge for me now, after reading through about a dozen game stories and listening to talk radio, is to provide a fresh perspective on walk-off #324. If you're going to be a serious reader of this blog, you know what happened already, so let's look at what made this particular walk-off stand out.

It would seem that the place to start is with the idea that everything broke just right on both sides of the ball. Particularly, I'm talking about Carlos Beltran's catch in the 7th inning, where he went over the center field fence to rob Jose Molina of a home run. Every no-hitter seems to have one defensive gem that makes it possible and perhaps that's true of great walk-off moments as well (We'll be looking into that!)

Marlon Anderson's home run required a remarkable combination of events. It was only the sixth inside-the-park home run at Shea Stadium by a Met and the first since Darryl Strawberry in 1989. It required that…
