* The longest hit streak by a Mets pitcher is held by Jerry Koosman, at 6 games (1974)

* The longest hitless streak by a Mets position player is 20 games, by David Wright's good friend, Joe McEwing (2002).

* The longest "reached base at least once" streak in Mets history is 47 games, set by John Olerud (1998-99). Jose Vizcaino (1995-96), Darryl Strawberry (1987) and Keith Hernandez (1983) are all tied for 2nd at 32 games.

* The longest "reached via error" streak in Mets history is 4 games, by Ty Wigginton (2003)

* The longest "reached via walk" streak in Mets history is 12 games, by Darryl Strawberry (1987)

* What did Piazza do in the 25th game? He went 0-4 in a 6-3 win over the Marlins. What did Brooks do in the 25th game? He went 0-4 in a 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

* Neither Piazza nor Brooks had a walk-off hit during their hit streak. The longest hitting streak by a Mets player, who had a walk-off hit during that hit streak is the 23-gamer by Cleon Jones in 1970. He had a walk-off triple against the Phillies on September 10, 1970, though he had a hit earlier in the game, extending his hit streak to 18 games.

A walk-off triple? I thought you could only have a walk-off single or home run.

If someone was on first when you were at the plate you can have a walk-off triple.

I'm glad someone got the Bieser interleague reference :)

The best Mets ejections I know

When you think of the Mets and famous ejections, I'm guessing you first think of the famous Bobby Valentine mustache game, when after Valentine got tossed, he returned to the dugout in disguise. You know it. You love it. I remember being amused when I asked Bobby V about it while we were working on Baseball Tonight, how he simply said "It worked. We won the game."
