Mets Stat of the Day: Trouble with the curve

Jim McIsaac

Which Met had the greatest difficulty hitting the curve in 2013?

They made a movie about it. In baseball, sometimes what separates the good hitters from the great hitters is their ability to hit breaking pitches. Looking at the Mets who had at least 20 at-bats that ended on curveballs in 2013, we can find which Met had the least success trying to hit the hook.
