  • Nice week for most of the regulars. Oh, except for Shawn Green and Paul Lo Duca, who are horrendous out machines batting consecutively in the order. Green also muffed a routine pickoff throw in the ninth inning at first base yesterday. He quite literally brings nothing to the table, baseball-wise, right now.
  • The meat of the order -- Beltran, Wright, Delgado -- brought their hitting shoes this week. Each hit at least two homeruns, batted at least .320 and slugged at least .550.
  • Not a very good week for Lastings Milledge who, along with Green and Lo Duca, completes the lower offensive quadrant of the Mets. There is reason to stay optimistic about Milledge, though: his BABIP is abnormally low at .219; league average is around .300. His line drive rate is 27.3%, which is pretty ridiculous and likely unsustainable. Among qualifying hitters, Michael Young leads all of baseball at 25.6%. Interestingly, Lo Duca is second at 24.9%.
