Jacob deGrom had a strong year for the Mets, posting a 3.53 ERA in 201.1 innings of work. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name every starting pitcher in Mets history to post a single-season ERA under 3.00.

Every qualified starting pitcher in Mets history to post a single-season ERA under 3.00

To qualify for this list, the pitcher needs to have qualified for the ERA title, which requires at least one inning pitched for every game the pitcher’s team plays. (In a standard season, that’s 162 innings pitched.)

deGrom was the only Mets pitcher to reach that innings mark in 2017, and nobody else was particularly close. Robert Gsellman, Rafael Montero, and Seth Lugo were the only other Mets pitchers to even reach the 100-inning plateau.

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