from the leadoff position, Granderson is a player who has saved the Mets a few times this season by legging out a double when the game was on the line. His penchant for swiping an extra base when in need has earned him a speedy alter ego: The Flash
The resident Irishman who was brought up as a professional hitter. It’s only fitting that he finds himself among the ranks of a galactic alliance that can smack you around thanks to the countless objects that emulate from their ring (hopefully Murphy gets a ring soon!): The Green Lantern
For anyone who has been a fan of the Mets or followed David Wright may remember when he was Captain of his countries team in the World Baseball Classic. He’s also an incredible guy on and off the field which makes him truly live up to the Captain America monicker.
He can do it all. He’s fast, strong, has a rocket of an arm from the outfield and even wears a shirt with a comic book style “BAM!” on it as an ode to his towering homeruns. Yoenis Cespedes truly is Superman.
Lucas Duda was almost invisible for two months, he had very pedestrian statistics. When the Mets traded for Kelly Johnson, Duda asked manager Terry Collins if he was going to take his job. “That’s up to you,” Terry said. One can only assume this angered Duda who proceeded to smash every single pitch that came his way. Lucas Duda is the Hulk. Duda Smash!
Wilmer Flores got traded, continued to play through his emotions, only to find out after he had bared his soul that the deal was off. Flores has been a Met since he was 16 so it was understandable. It also reminds you of a mutant who was very emotional, talented, and had been living a life on the road from an early age. Wilmer Flores is Nightcrawler.
