After the production the Mets got at catcher from Kevin Plawecki, Devin Mesoraco, Jose Lobaton, and Tomas Nido, many believe the team needs to upgrade at catcher more than any other position. Given the issue with the Mets lineup, you would ideally want a power at the position.
Looking at Mets history, they have actually had some power bats from the catching position. Can you name the catchers who have had the most homers for the Mets? Good luck!
With the Mets having question marks at first base, there is a clamoring for Peter Alonso to be the Opening Day first baseman next year. Certainly, it is enticing to see that type of power at the first base position. Looking at the Mets history, they have rarely had the type of power many anticipate Alonso would have at the MLB level.
Can you name the Mets first baseman who have the most homers in team history? Good luck!
With David Price getting the win in Game 2, the Red Sox took a 2-0 series lead, and they are one step closer to winning the World Series. If the Red Sox do win, Price will become the 12th player first overall draft pick to win a World Series. Can you name the other 11? Good luck!

Last year, we saw most of the players the Mets traded at the deadline appear in the postseason. Notably, Jay Bruce hit a couple of homers in the Indians ALDS loss to the Yankees. Similarly, Addison Reed would not get out of the ALDS as the Red Sox lost to the Astros. This year as the postseason has begun there are former Mets on all teams except the Rockies. Can you name those players? Good luck!
We have seen Jacob deGrom have a historically great season. However, was it an all-time best Mets season at least as judged by WAR? Can you name the players who have had the 10 best seasons in Mets history? Good luck!
