The Mets hope to limit the number of opposing hitters who reach base this year. When those hitters do reach base, however, it’s nice to have a good pickoff move to send those runners back to the dugout every once in a while. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name every pitcher to pick off at least 10 baserunners during his Mets career.
As you can imagine, left-handers are overrepresented on this list. That said, there are also a number of righties, including a few of fairly recent vintage who were known to have strong pickoff moves. Also, while most of the pitchers listed here were starters, a few relievers accomplished the feat as well.
You’ll have four minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
