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). 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. We're up to the top 10 of the postseason portion. Stick around. These will be fun and (as always) Amazin'. No. 10 – Darryl Strawberry vs Nolan Ryan (1986 NLCS Game 5 vs Astros) No. 9 – Darryl Strawberry vs Bob Knepper (1986 NLCS Game 3 vs Astros) We can lump these two together since they fit into the story of the 198
