Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 2

Yea, the Mets have the worst record in baseball, so fan confidence is through the ground and you wouldn't imagine things could get much worse. This past week we've seen Brad Emaus designated for assignment and Justin Turner called up to take his place. Chris Young has been placed on the disabled list, as has Bobbby Parnell (or at least he will be any minute now).

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Pedro Beato, RP Beato continues to be the Mets' best reliever with another scoreless week under his belt. He struck out six in four innings spanning three games this week, and has outlasted Brad Emaus on the roster to be crowned Rule 5 Champion.
Carlos Beltran, RF .273/.360/.455 over the past week, but the Mets won just one game so I'm sure that's Beltran's fault somehow. #BlameBeltran
Blaine Boyer, RP Boyer didn't pan out for the Mets, so they cut him to make room for Izzy last week. He signed with the Pirates yesterday.
Tim Byrdak, RP Despite being the only lefty in the bullpen, Byrdak only made it into two games this week and didn't do anything exceptional while he was in them. Half of his balls in play have gone for hits, so that probably won't last forever.
Taylor Buchholz, RP Buchholz gave up a solo home run to the Rockies' Jonathan Herrera in one outing, but was flawless in two others.
Chris Capuano, SP Bleah, seven runs in eight innings against the Rockies, not nearly redeemed by a third of an inning of scoreless relief against the Braves.
D.J. Carrasco, RP I wish there were an "angry down" arrow for Carrasco this week: 4.2 innings pitched, four walks, three home runs.
Ike Davis, 1B 4-for-21 this week, but six walks as well. His ten walks and .400 on-base percentage lead the team.
R.A. Dickey, SP Even the Dickster had a bad week, walking four and allowing five runs in 7.1 innings, covering a start and a relief appearance.
Brad Emaus, 2B He stunk last week, he stunk this week, and now he's gone.
Scott Hairston, OF Hairston hit .308/.357/.615 this week, albeit in just 13 at-bats. I'm optimistic that he'll be a useful backup outfielder and bench bat.
Willie Harris, OF He's been mostly terrible following a few nice games to start the season. Mercifully, he won't get much playing time with Jason Bay returning to the lineup tonight.
Daniel Murphy, UT The bat is coming around — the two-run, blue-collar blast last night certainly helped — and the defense has looked a lot smoother of late.
Jonathon Niese, SP Goodness, this whole list is depressing. Just when I thought it couldn't possibly get any worse, Niese allows seven runs, two homers, and eight walks in 12 innings.
Angel Pagan, CF His defense was a lot better this week, but his bat remains flaccid: .167/.214/.292 in his last 24 at-bats.
Bobby Parnell, RP Just one run allowed in three innings, lowering his season ERA from 9.00 to 6.14. Circulation problems with his middle finger will shelve him for a little while.
Mike Pelfrey, SP Had more ground outs (13) than fly outs (9) last time out, so that's something. He has allowed 29 hits in 16.2 innings, a .397 BABIP which seems destined to drop given his league-average line drive rate.
Jose Reyes, SS Unspectacular week at the plate for Jose, but he drew three walks and belted his first home run, both good signs.
Francisco Rodriguez, RP Three strikeouts and one walk in two innings is par for the course. Two games finished this week means his vesting option for 2012 is just 51 GFs away.
Josh Thole, C Another Mets batter, another crummy week at the plate. Thole needs to draw walks and hit for average and he did neither of those things.
David Wright, 3B Woof. .111/.172/.185 with eight strikeouts. Traid David Wrong?
Chris Young, SP Well, he's on the disabled list now, which is too bad since he was one of the few bright spots so far.
