Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: Most GIDP in a season

Can you name every Met who grounded into at least 20 double plays in a season?

The 2016 Mets are not a team built on foot speed or a strong running game. In that spirit, for this week's Mind Boggler, we're asking you to name every player in Mets history to ground into at least 20 double plays in a season.

Mets with at least 20 GIDP in a season

This year's Mets are a relatively slow team, ranking 28th in baseball with just 27 stolen bases. Interestingly, the team's  82 double plays grounded into rank near the bottom of the league, at 22nd overall. The likely reason for that is twofold: First, the Mets' .305 on-base percentage is the fourth-lowest in baseball, meaning that they have relatively few runners on base with the opportunity to get doubled up. Second, the Mets' league-low 40.2% ground ball rate indicates that they keep the ball off the ground and in the air, which also reduces the opportunities for double plays.

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