On July 30th, the Mets will be retiring the sixth number in their history (including Jackie Robinson). After the Mets retired Casey Stengel‘s number, the team has been much more stringent in retiring numbers in honor of their former players and managers. In fact, the Mets have only retired the numbers of three of their former players (including the one upcoming this summer). Can you name them? Good luck!
Right now, it appears that Yoenis Cespedes may be leaving the Mets and joining the Nationals. While his ride was fun, there is a legitimate debate regarding what his true impact was. One way to measure that is WAR. Looking over the numbers, there were very few Mets who had a bigger impact than Cespedes did with the Mets. Can you name them? Good luck!
I don’t know about where you live, but I’ve gotten snow on Wednesday and Thursday. It seems like just yesterday it was shorts weather. It was just yesterday that we were trapped in a bad Elvis Presley Hawaii movie. Speaking of Hawaii, my Dad and I were talking about Mets players born in Hawaii. Can you name them? Good luck!
After this week’s events, there is no other place I could go. If you don’t get 100% on this I will be astounded. Name the players who have entered the Hall of Fame as a Met:
Happy New Year. As 2015 closes, so ends the first year of this blog. I’m surprised how far this blog was able to reach. There were readers from all over the globe. Can you name what countries they came from? Good luck!
The prevailing thought is the Mets have been active this offseason making shrewd moves. Speaking of moves, are you able to name the first major league players acquired by the Mets under the Sandy Alderson regime? Good luck!
The NLCS has only been around since 1969, and the NLCS MVP Award has only been around since 1977. With that said, there are very few Mets that have won the award. Are you able to name the players re-signed and brought back to the Mets the year after leading them to the World Series? Good luck!
With MLB announcing they will be making a goodwill tour to Cuba this month, I began to remember the memorable (and not so memorable) Cuban born players who have played for the Mets. Can you name them? Good luck!
With another year of postseason awards handed out, the closest the Mets came to winning an Award was Terry Collins, who finished third in the Manager of the Year voting. Can you name the Mets who were the first to win a postseason award? Good luck!
Rumor has it that the Mets offseason is being held up by Daniel Murphy. Apparently, the Mets are waiting to see if he accepts the qualifying offer. I doubt he will as an overwhelming majority of players reject the offer. Can you name the player(s) who have accepted the offer? Good luck!
