Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 9

New, comments

Lately, the Mets have had theirs ups and downs, winning two of three from the Braves after dropping the series opener and winning a great game to start the series in Milwaukee before losing again last night. The starters have been very good, the lineup is scoring a good amount of runs, and the bullpen has been atrocious.

Both of the Mets' losses since Friday came after they had a lead in the eighth inning. After their struggles in the series against the Phillies a couple weekends back, I thought it was just one of those times that everyone had a rough game at once, but now the bullpen is a definite area of concern. Despite their failures, the Mets are still just three games under .500 at 29-32.

The stats below are from June 3 through June 8.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta The Acostalypse has returned in Acostalyptic fashion: two runs in 0.1 IP.
Jason Bay, LF One red arrow does not even begin to describe the misery that is Bay at the plate right now. Getting hit by a pitch constituted 1/3 of his positive impact at the plate.
Pedro Beato, RP He's not fooling anyone since returning from the DL. Zero strikeouts this week in 2.2 IP, and his 10.12 ERA was no fluke.
Carlos Beltran, RF He didn't do much with the bat (.489 OPS), but at least when he did it came at the right time.
Taylor Buchholz, RP Still on the DL, and he's definitely missed. Buchholz was one of the most effective relievers on the team prior to his injury.
Tim Byrdak, RP In this bullpen, allowing a walk and no runs in 0.2 IP is something of an achivement.
Chris Capuano, SP Another excellent outing in his return to Milwaukee as Cappy allowed a lone run in six innings of work.
Ike Davis, 1B Don't expect much to change hear until his three week sentence in the boot is up.
R.A. Dickey, SP Still pitching through his foot injury, Dickey made it look easy, allowing only one run in eight innings of work on Sunday night against the Braves.
Nick Evans, 1B Not that he had many opportunities, but Evans still does not have a hit since getting called up from Buffalo.
Dillon Gee, SP With seven scoreless innings against the Braves, Gee outshined Jair Jurrjens.
Scott Hairston, OF He literally did nothing this week. Zero plate appearances.
Willie Harris, OF Six more trips to the plate without a whole lot to show for it. One hit, one walk, and one run scored.
Jason Isringhausen, RP He's looking very hittable lately, which is probably the result of regression more than being overworked.
Daniel Murphy, 1B If you're going to be a singles machine, .375/.444/.375 isn't a bad way to do it.
Jonathon Niese, SP 7.2 strong innings against the Braves, and he continues to strike out opponents at a good clip.
Angel Pagan, CF He wasn't as good as he was immediately upon his return, but he wasn't Jason Bay, either.
Bobby Parnell, RP One inning, one strikeout, one hit. Hey, not bad.
Ronny Paulino 1.222 OPS on the week after hitting lefties and hitting a ridiculously long home run off a righty reliever.
Mike Pelfrey, SP Six good innings against the Brew Crew, but as usual, he wasn't exactly dominating with his two strikeouts.
Jason Pridie, CF He went 2-for-6 and had the big hit against Jurrjens on Saturday night to put the Mets on the board.
Jose Reyes, SS It just doesn't get much more exciting than this. 3 triples, 2 doubles, 4 singles, 2 walks, 1-for-1 in stolen base attempts, and a .429/.478/.810 slash line.
Francisco Rodriguez, RP The strikeouts are there, but he's getting hit hard. Really hard.
Ruben Tejada, 2B One of Tejada's better weeks at the plate while playing well in the field at second: .333/.444/.467.
Dale Thayer His only appearance came in the ninth inning last night, and it did not go well. He looked overmatched against Milwaukee.
Josh Thole, C For the second straight week, Thole's getting back to being 2010 Thole.
Justin Turner, 2B A very light-hitting week for Turner.
David Wright, 3B He'll be on the shelf at least a few more weeks.
