Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: Hit streaks

New, 24 comments

Can you name the players with the longest hit streaks in Mets history?

The 2016 Mets will feature one of the team's strongest offensive units in recent memory. With the additions of Neil Walker and Asdrubal Cabrera, the re-signing of Yoenis Cespedes, and expected increases in playing time from Michael Conforto, Travis d'Arnaud, and David Wright, the Mets appear to have a solid lineup one-through-eight.

Today, we'll revisit some of the most impressive offensive performances in franchise history. For this week's Mind Boggler, we're asking you to name every player in franchise history to post a hit streak of at least 20 games.

The longest hit streaks in Mets history.

Last year, Michael Cuddyer and Daniel Murphy each posted 12-game hit streaks to lead the team. Cuddyer's lasted from May 24 to June 7, while Murphy's extended from September 18 to October 3.

In order to qualify for this list, the player needed to collect at least one hit in consecutive games in which he had at least one at-bat. Furthermore, we are counting streaks that lasted multiple seasons (i.e., streaks that started in one season and ended in another).

You'll have three minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
