The 2018 Mets have struggled mightily against left-handed pitching, as the team’s .635 OPS against southpaws ranks dead last in all of baseball. Among Mets with at least 50 plate appearances against lefties this year, Brandon Nimmo leads the way with a .780 OPS, followed by Michael Conforto (.728) and Asdrubal Cabrera (.719).

For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name every player in Mets history with an OPS of at least .800 against left-handers. To qualify, the player needs at least 500 plate appearances against left-handed pitching as a member of the Mets. As you’d imagine, most of the players listed here are right-handed power hitters, although there are a few switch hitters and even one pure lefty.
