Mets teams’ hitting sucked, plain and simple. Even when they won 100 games and the World Series in 1969, they were a poor 9th out of 12 in scoring. In fact, in Koosman’s 12 years with the Mets, only once were they above 8th, and that year, they were 7th!! Just awful.
- A dreadful, legacy-damaging 17-46, due primarily to abysmal run support. Maybe had he pitched for the best offensive team in baseball those 3 years, he'd have been 46-17 instead.
Overall, his team's were in the 66th percentile in hitting, as compared to Koosman's 38th percentile. Let's face it: Moose played his career in heaven.
