On the first day of the season, Luis Castillo had 4 RBI
* A Mets second baseman has not had 4 RBI in a regular season game since Damion Easley against the Brewers on May 13, 2007. They went all of last season without a 4-RBI game from a second baseman.
* The Mets have had 43 regular-season games in which a second baseman had 4+ RBI, so that averages out to slightly less than one per year.
* The Mets second baseman with the most 4+ RBI games in regular-season play is Edgardo Alfonzo with 8.
* Among the luminaries with a 4+ RBI game as a Mets second baseman: Danny Garcia, Kelvin Chapman, Luis Lopez, and Roberto Alomar.
* The Mets record for RBI in a regular-season game by a second baseman is 7, by Jose Valentin
On the second day of the season, Jose Reyes had a six-RBI game.
* A six-RBI regular-season game by a Mets shortstop is extremely rare. It has only happened twice in Mets history, and you'll never guess the pair who did it: Dick Schofield (1992 vs Giants) and Jerry Buchek (1967 vs Astros).
* The Mets have had 30 regular-season games in which a player had 6+ RBI. The last was Carlos Delgado's 9-RBI game against the Yankees on June 27, 2008.
* The Mets all-time leaders in 6+ RBI games are Robin Ventura and Dave Kingman, with 3 each.
Those truly trained to be Mets fans know...Two positions on the diamond have never had a 6+ RBI game for the Mets- pitcher and centerfield.
