    He should go in as a Met. Perhaps the Dodgers shouldn't have traded the greatest hitting catcher ever for cancer and then this wouldn't even be a discussion.
    So he should go in as a Met. But he should decide. But he should be go in as a Met, even though it's his decision.

    Mets. Spent more years there, and went to a World Series there.

    The Mets. His most noteworthy career moments came during his years in New York.

    while nolan did win his ring in NY, he spent like 1 year of his 20+ year career in NY, i think he should have gone in as an angel, considering he had his best years and through 4 of his 7 no-hitters there. It's kind of a totally different situation.
    But if the fact that he wouldn't have ever been a big leaguer without Tommy and the dodgers and the fact that his numbers were much better in less AB's isnt that important then why mention it at all?

    he was already a legend before going to NY, he had one of the all time best rookie seasons and did it behind the plate. Not to mention '97 when he hit .363

    they take everyones preference into consideration, but if Frank Thomas wanted to go in with an A's hat do you really think they would let him?

    Idk why people act like the Dodgers just drafted him and that's it lol.

    He played several years for the Dodgers and had his best seasons there. He's going in as a Met regardless of if he chooses or not. He's always been bitter at the Dodgers for trading him and he spent 2 more years there, going to the WS.

    Five best seasons rWAR

    97 - 8.5 LAD
    93 - 6.8 LAD
    95 - 6.0 LAD
    98 - 5.2 NYM
    96 - 5.1 LAD

    Total
    30.7 rWAR LAD - 3017 PA
    22.8 rWAR NYM - 3941 PA

    So playing somewhere longer vs being better somewhere in a shorter amount of time?

    Playing in NYC > everything else.

    I don't know if the WAR argument is as valid as pro-LA fans want, if his seasons in NY were HoF worthy as well.

    Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.

    I voted New York. I tend to favor where the player spent more time as long as the performances were close.

    He spent 50.88% of his career PA with the Mets
    38.95% of his career PA with the Dodgers

    He produced 40.64% of his career rWAR value with the Mets
    He produced 54.72% of his career rWAR value with the Dodgers

    It's a reasonable discussion.

    He was traded in May, he spent the majority of 98 in a Mets uniform.
