Mets Stat Of The Day: Batting first in the order

Eric Young Jr. - Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

There has been a lot of talk about the Mets' struggles at the top of the order. Did they get any better production from the leadoff hitter in games they won versus games they lost last season?

The importance of the lead-off hitter has been well-chronicled. As has the Mets' inability to find production from that spot in in the order since Jose Reyes left the team. Yet, last season, the Mets' success didn't seem to hinge on production from the top of the lineup. The performance of Mets hitters batting first remained about the same—pretty mediocre—whether the Mets won or lost.
