Trivia Friday – Mets Starters Before The Five Aces Pitched Together
Thursday, April 11th will forever be a landmark date in Mets history, and it is not just because Mickey Callaway‘s Mets started the year with a franchise best 10-1 record or because the Mets swept their first two road series for the first time in their histry. No, it is because the Mets Five Aces, Flamethrower Five, or whatever you want to call them finally pitched one time through the rotation.
There were many stops and starts since 2015, but it finally happened. Overall, there have been 18 Mets pitchers who have made a start for the Mets (will be 19 when Jason Vargas comes off the Disabled List) since the start of the 2015 season. This includes the Five Aces.Â Can you name all 18 pitchers? Good luck!
