Coming into today below are the NL Team ranking splits from the one, three and four slots in Batting average, On Base Percentage and Runs Batted In. Only Wright currently is among the top 7 in all 3 categories. For the Mets to really get things going they will need their one and four slot hitters namely Reyes and Beltran to also perform better than they currently are.
Reyes while not an rbi guy but more of a leadoff man still has all of 0 rbi’s. I am not even going to get into if Reyes is about obp or not except to say that a .303/OBP from a leadoff guy is not that good when you consider he is batting .303 as well.
The point is for the Mets to really get going it is not just Wright that needs to step his game up but Beltran and Reyes as well.
Here the the Mets splits in Batting Average and Runs Batted In with RISP. Beltran who has had the most at bats has just 2 rbi’s and Reyes who is tied for the 2nd most at bats with Wright and Davis and again is not a rbi guy has none. Davis leads the team with 5 rbi’s and Wright is tied for 2nd with Harris with 4 rbi’s.
The Mets are better than this offensively but it will take a team effort to get things going. Maybe tonight things change for the better.
Note: I did not include pitchers (Young & Dickey) in RISP.
