As a public service to those who seek better trivia expertise, I offer an updated list for each NL team as to which pitchers have the most wins against the Mets. Most Wins vs Mets Astros - Larry Dierker, 14 Braves- Phil Niekro, 25 Brewers- Ben Sheets, 4 Cardinals- Bob Gibson, 28 Cubs- Greg Maddux and Ferguson Jenkins, 16 Diamondbacks- Randy Johnson, 6 Dodgers- Don Drysdale, 24 Giants- Juan Marichal, 26 Marlins- Dontrelle Willis, 11 Nationals- Steve Rogers, 15 Padres- Bruce Hurst, 9 Phillies- Steve Carlton, 20 Pirates- Bob Friend, 14 Reds- Jim Maloney, 19 Rockies- Steve Reed and Curt Leskanic, 5 Equal opportunity dictates that we do the same for losses Most Losses vs Mets Astros- Larry Dierker, 11 Braves- John Smoltz, 15 Brewers- Chris Capuano, 4 Cardinals- Bob Gibson, 14 Cubs- Rick Reuschel,
