Fresh on the heels of Patrick Flood’s list, the good fellows at Amazin’ Avenue reboot their unfinished version after a long hiatus. Our man Bob Ojeda comes in at No. 50 even though that was Sid Fernandez’s number. Alex Nelson provides a good and thorough writeup of Ojeda’s path to the Mets.
Fun fact, for what it’s worth: Ojeda started and got the win in the first baseball game I ever attended, Opening Day 1987. That means the first pitch I ever saw in a big-league game was thrown by a guy I now talk to with some regularity. And the first hitter I ever saw in a Major League game was Barry Bonds, to date the best hitter I’ve ever seen in a Major League game.
