Joe Torre managed the Mets from May 31 1977 to the end of the 1981 season. I'm going to ask you some questions. The answers are in the comments section, so you can check yourself. Can you tell me, in that time period... * Who led Mets pitchers in wins? * Whose win-loss record was a paltry 8-30? * Which 3 pitchers beat the Mets the most (8 times)? * Which pitcher the Mets beat the most (10 times)? * The 2 pitchers who pitched complete game 1-hitters against the Mets? * The Met who struck out 8 in 3 2/3 innings against the 1978 Reds, yet allowed 4 home runs in the same game? * Who led the Mets in both walk-off hits and triples? * Who hit .373 against the Mets, with 20 HR and 53 RBI in 45 games? * Who the only Met was to hit 3 HR in a game? * Who were the 3 Mets who went 0-for-7 in a game?
