Who's on First?

As if I wasn't a big enough dork with going through all the main third basemen in club history, I figured I'd be an even bigger dork and start going around the infield.

So here's the rundown of the main first basemen - same criteria as before.

Through the Mets first 49 seasons, they've also had 23 main men at the other corner.  They've gone through periods of stability and periods of turnover.

Ed Kranepool tops the list with 10 seasons - 1964-1969, 1971-1972, 1975-1976

Keith Hernandez - 6 seasons - 1983-1988
John Milner - 3 seasons - 1974-1974, 1977
Dave Magadan - 3 seasons -1989-1991
John Olerud - 3 seasons - 1997-1999
Carlos Delgado - 3 seasons - 2006-2009

While third base had 5 different players that held the position for more than three years - first base only had two players with that claim to fame.  Ed Kranepool and Keith Hernandez.
