Trivia Friday

Fourteen years ago, the Twin Towers fell, and American lives were lost. The country mourned and came together. The Mets players would make a symbolic gesture to wear the caps of the First Responders to honor those heroes who risked their lives to save others. 

Today’s quiz seeks the names of the First Responder organizations that risked their lives and died on 9/11. God Bless America.

Trivia Friday

Since he was first called up, all we heard about Jon Niese was that he was born on the same day the Mets last won the World Series. What we hear now is Niese’s next start is the biggest of his life. Sounds like there’s a real chance he may not be on the postseason roster. 

It’s strange that the player born on the date the Mets last won the World Series may not be on the postseason roster. It made me think with this young team, how many players were alive when the Mets won the 1986 World a Series. I have you one answer. Good luck with the other 17!


Trivia Friday

in 2007, the Mets appeared to be on their way to their second straight division title.  However, this team had pitching flaws, which included a weak bullpen and the need to rest Pedro Martinez down the stretch. Sounds familiar?

Anyway, this week’s quiz seeks the names of all the pitchers who pitched for the Mets in 2007. Good luck!


Trivia Friday

Considering the issues with the Mets bullpen, I thought today’s quiz should focus on the top Mets’ relievers by appearances. Good luck!


Trivia Friday

With the Mets playing Pittsburg this weekend, I was reminded of how lucky Mets fans have been to have such terrific broadcasters.  It all started with the first group, who all shared TV and radio duties. Today’s quiz seeks the names of the three original Mets announcers. 

So, as you know, it’s Quiz Friday here at Mets Daddy, so to all you readers out there, Happy Birthday. 


Trivia Friday

With the Mets making moves to reshape the roster, this week I wanted to see if you could name all the players the Mets acquired via trade in 2015. Good luck!


Trivia Friday 

The failed Carlos Gomez deal is something we’re going to talk aboit for a long time especially now that Gomez was traded to the Astros. This week’s tongue in cheek quiz looks for the players who changed teams in the Mets-Brewers trade. Good luck!


Trivia Friday

Currently, the Mets are averaging 3.42 runs per game (with 2.83 runs per game in July).  As noted everywhere, the offense is historically bad at scoring runs.  To that end, today’s trivia question focuses on which teams have scored the fewest runs per season in the 2000s.  Good luck!


Trivia

It’s funny how sometimes the simple and almost inane things become the most treasured parts of your youth.  For me, one of my favorite things growing up was sitting around Nana’s dinner table after Sunday dinner.  My uncles, along with my brother and I, would sit around and begin testing each other with baseball trivia questions until the time Nana had enough and would yell “NO MORE BASEBALL AT THE DINNER TABLE!”

It was at this dinner table, I learned about baseball’s history.  I learned the exploits of the greatest players in the form of trivia questions.  “When Babe Ruth hit 60 homeruns, whose record did he beat?”  His own.  “Who is the only player to win an MVP in both leagues?”  Frank Robinson.  “Who’s the only pitcher to win multiple Game 7s?”  Bob Gibson.  This would go on and on, and I loved every minute of it.

In a nod to these memories, I wanted to include a trivia question each week.  Rather than have a bunch of comments, posts, etc., I decided to use Sporcle.  I figured with the Mets playing the Cardinals, Keith Hernandez being named to the Mets Franchise Four, and the Mets fans clamoring for a trade, this week’s quiz seeks the players involved in the 1984 trade that brought Keith Hernandez to the Mets.  Good luck!
