Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 7

A week ago, the Mets were two games under .500. Today, they're two games under .500. Treading water in the absence of David Wright, Ike Davis, and Angel Pagan is certainly not the worst the team could do. Generally speaking, the pitching hasn't been great, and the lineup hasn't scored too many runs. Also like last week, the Mets are in fourth place in the NL East. On the upside, the Phillies have been meidocre of late, too. It could be a lot worse.

The stats below are from May 19 through May 25.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jason Bay, LF .348 OBP wasn't awful, but .350 SLG sticks out big time without Wright and Davis in the lineup.
Pedro Beato, RP Beato's streak of innings with no earned runs came to an end, and he allowed two in two innings of work. That's neither good nor alarming.
Carlos Beltran, RF Just another awesome week for Beltran, with a .917 OPS despite not hitting a HR. Enjoy this.
Taylor Buchholz, RP Allowing two runs in 2.1 IP is never a good thing, and he only struck out one batter this week.
Tim Byrdak, RP 0.2 IP, 0 K, 1 BB, 1 ER. That's not a good line.
Chris Capuano, SP Perhaps Capuano should skip Yankee Stadium next time around after giving up four home runs to the Yanks. One of his worst outings as a Met.
Ike Davis, 1B There's no return in sight for Davis yet.
R.A. Dickey, SP Six innings of Yankee-beating knuckleballing with 6 K's. Fantastic.
Nick Evans, 3B You can't judge a guy who got 1 plate appearance in a week.
Dillon Gee, SP Gee surrounded his inning of suckitude last night with 12.2 scoreless ones. That won't last, but he was pretty good.
Scott Hairston, OF Speaking of guys who got one plate appearance, here's another one!
Willie Harris, OF 4 singles in 8 PA. His game against the Yankees was his best in a long time.
Jason Isringhausen, RP The feel-good story continues. Only an inning of work, but it was scoreless with 2 K. That's good.
Fernando Martinez Drew only 1 BB but racked up 5 K in limited playing time. It's been tough for the backup OF to get any playing time lately.
Pat Misch Buzz, your long reliever, woof!
Daniel Murphy, 2B The Irish Hammer looked like Ike this week: .286/.375/.476.
Jonathon Niese, SP The defense let him down, but allowing six runs to the Cubs makes this a bad week for Niese.
Mike O'Connor, RP Two more scoreless innings. He'll stick on the big league roster unless he starts to struggle.
Angel Pagan, CF Pagan is finally set to return on Friday, and he'll be a big improvement over the Pridie/Hairston/Harris spot in the lineup.
Bobby Parnell, RP Still having a tough time recovering from the blot clot in his middle finger. Bullpen has been great so there's no need to rush him.
Ronny Paulino He picked up a few hits, but they did not make up for his "defense" in Chicago on Tuesday night.
Mike Pelfrey, SP For six innings at Yankee Stadium, Pelf looked great. In the seventh, not so much.
Jason Pridie, CF 7 K, 2 BB, and 4 singles. For the second straight week, he's hitting like himself.
Jose Reyes, SS Only stole one base while getting caught on his other attempt, and he didn't do much with the bat.
Francisco Rodriguez, RP Frankie continues to dominate: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R. He's quietly having a great year.
Ruben Tejada, 2B By his standards, this was a good week at the plate: .333/.333/.389, but when you're on the team for your fielding prowess, it helps if you catch the pop ups.
Josh Thole, C Didn't play much, but at .125/.125/.125, he didn't hit much or walk any.
Justin Turner, 2B Turner's OPS on the week was lower than Ruben Tejada's so he's coming back down to earth.
David Wright, 3B Not much has changed regarding his back, but hopefully it heals sooner than later.
