On this year’s Deadline Day, we’re wrapping up our series of trade-themed Mind Bogglers. So far, we’ve covered the decades of the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, and the 2000s. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’d like you to name every player the Mets traded for in the current decade.
In previous weeks, we used a minimum playing time threshold that players had to meet in order to qualify for the list. Using any such threshold would make this week’s quiz too easy, however, since any player meeting it would be a fairly high-profile player on recent Mets teams.
Therefore, to qualify for this week’s list, the player need only to have had at least one plate appearance or one batter faced as a Met. This is essentially a list of every player for whom Sandy Alderson traded, with just two players acquired during Omar Minaya’s tenure as GM.
You’ll have six minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
