All-time rosters matchup No. 2: Mets vs. Phillies

By December 29, 2011

Follow me on:

The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets have been headed in opposite directions for pretty much the last five years, and their all-time lineups reflect that.

The Mets' all-time lineup features two players (Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes) who started last season in the team's lineup but now are gone, and a third (David Wright) who seems to be headed that way in the coming months.

The Phillies' all-time lineup has three current players, and one that they recently re-signed as a free agent (Jimmy Rollins).

So who would win when these teams match up (click through to the team names for the stats, breakdowns and arguments):


  1. Billy Hamilton CF (1894)
  2. Ed Delahanty LF (1899)
  3. Ryan Howard 1B (2006)
  4. Mike Schmidt 3B (1980)
  5. Chuck Klein RF (1932)
  6. Chase Utley 2B (2007)
  7. Jimmy Rollins SS (2007)
  8. Mike Lieberthal C (1999)
  9. Steve Carlton P (1972)


  1. Jose Reyes SS (2006)
  2. John Olerud 1B (1998)
  3. Carlos Beltran CF (2006)
  4. Mike Piazza C (2000)
  5. Darryl Strawberry RF (1987)
  6. David Wright 3B (2007)
  7. Bernard Gilkey LF (1996)
  8. Edgardo Alfonso 2B (2000)
  9. Dwight Gooden P (1985)

By the way, the winner of our first matchup (Red Sox vs. Yankees) was a good one. The Yankees won 147-113.
