Player of the week: Carlos Beltran had a ridiculous week at the plate, knocking seven of his nine hits for extra bases including four homeruns. His cartoonish 1.000 slugging percentage speaks to his recent power surge, though the real test will be when the Mets return to Shea as Beltran has been far better on the road since signing with the team three offseasons ago.
The Mets definitely had their hitting shoes on this week. David Wright continues to impress with the bat and after a slow start has hit .335/.420/.585 since May 8.
Moises Alou had another great week and has hit .312/.372/.623 since returning from the disabled list on July 27. If you don't count his first three games back he is hitting a robust .348/.413/.697.
Jose Reyes had a pretty crummy week at the plate but managed to contribute in some way by drawing five walks and swiping seven bases.
Shawn Green led the team in on-base percentage this week, collecting five hits in 15 at-bats and drawing five walks. He had nary an extra-base hit but it was nice to see him not embarrass himself for once.
