Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 17: Pitchers

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 12: Frank Francisco #48 of the New York Mets hands the ball to manager Terry Collins after getting into a ninth inning jam against the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field on August 12, 2012 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

Over the last eight games, the Mets have given up a staggering 45 runs — 5.63 runs per game. The high average is a result of one blowout loss to the Marlins and another to the Braves, but the team allowed at least four runs in all but one of the games. For the season, the rotation's 3.92 ERA ranks ninth in Major League Baseball. The bullpen's 5.03 ERA is the worst in the league.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta, RHP Acosta has become the default answer for the "We knew it was over when..." section of our quick recaps.
R.A. Dickey, RHP Yes, Dickey had a bad outing last night, but over two starts he still had a 3.60 ERA with 19 K and 2 BB in 15 innings.
Josh Edgin, LHP The 27.00 ERA is partially thanks to Frank Frank, but Edgin gave up a couple home runs in just two innings.
Frank Francisco, RHP He surrendered 3 runs and recorded just 4 outs. And he also walked in two runs that were charged to Edgin. Horrible. The Mets are on the hook for his $6 million next year.
Dillon Gee, RHP With the Mets' plan to use a six-man rotation through the end of the season, it's safe to say Gee's season is over.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey's been decent since his stellar debut, but that's not the end of the world.
Jeremy Hefner, RHP A respectable week out of the bullpen. He'll be in the new six-man rotation starting on Sunday.
Jon Niese, LHP In two starts, Niese allowed just 5 runs in 14 innings with 10 K and 3 BB. He'll finish the year with a sub-3.50 ERA if he can avoid any disastrous outings.
Garrett Olson, LHP Olson was here very briefly and earned himself a 108.00 ERA and a ticket back to Buffalo.
Bobby Parnell, RHP He loaded the bases in Cincinnati but still managed a scoreless week in three outings.
Ramon Ramirez, RHP He's been mediocre all year, but Ramirez managed three scoreless innings. Not bad.
Jon Rauch, RHP Rauch very quietly had a good week, just like he's very quietly had a pretty good year.
Johan Santana, RHP Johan was somehow worse in his first outing off the disabled list than he was in the three outings before going on it.
Chris Young, RHP Despite the magic act in Cincinnati, Young still posted a 6.30 ERA in two starts. He walked 6.3 per-nine in that span, too.

This week's player meter covers games from August 7 through 15.
