Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 21

New, comment

It's all about the future these days, but the Mets still know how to make a loss painful in the present. All in all, they're looking up at the top of the division and figure to finish third by the end of the year. At four games below .500, a winning record looks increasingly unlikely.

All stats below run from September 5 through September 11.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta, RP Acosta threw five more very good innings, striking out seven while allowing two runs (one earned).
Miguel Batista The results could have looked a whole lot worse with more walks than strikeouts, but he put up a mediocre 4.09 ERA over two starts.
Mike Baxter
Mike from Whitestone is back and doubled once in three plate appearances.
Jason Bay, LF For once, Bay looked like a slugger in a Mets uniform, belting a pair of bombs and five doubles in only five games.
Pedro Beato, RP Mr. Rule 5 threw four innings, gave up a couple runs, and struck out only one.
Tim Byrdak, RP Neither an awful nor great week for Byrdak, who didn't have any runs charged to his record but picked a very inopportune time to hit someone with a pitch.
Chris Capuano, SP Plenty of strikeouts and not many walks in two starts, but his 5.73 ERA was no good.
D.J. Carrasco, RP Clearly the last man in the bullpen, behind even Ryota Igarashi, Carrasco allowed a run over three innings this week.
R.A. Dickey, SP Just another seven scoreless innings from Dickey, and on Tuesday, he's part of the Star Wars night promotion.
Lucas Duda The Dude is only human, man.
Nick Evans After a few incredible weeks, Evans predictably dropped off a bit.
Dillon Gee, SP Six strikeouts and two runs in six innings? Sounds good to me.
Scott Hairston, OF Still on the disabled list, and it wouldn't surprise me if his season is over at this point.
Willie Harris, OF In an otherwise ugly week, Harris did manage a .462 OBP.
Daniel Ray Herrera The screwballing lefty continued to make a good impression with four-and-two-thirds scorless innings of work.
Ryota Igarashi, RP It was about as bad a week as a reliever can have. Despite five strikeouts in five innings, Igarashi truly earned his 12.00 ERA with a slew of walks.
Jason Isringhausen, RP That he didn't allow a run in his only inning of work after issuing three walks is just plain lucky.
Mike Nickeas All things considered, his was not a bad week.
Jon Niese, SP It's safe to assume Niese has made his final start of the season.
Angel Pagan, CF Pagan was decent enough over eight games but didn't really shine in any particular area. His defense in center field still looks shaky, too.
Bobby Parnell, RP Walks are coming back to haunt Parnell lately, and he's been struggling for a little while now. He should still be okay in the long run.
Val Pascucci
Buffalo's favorite masher has gone 1-for-2 since his callup.
Ronny Paulino, C He didn't play much, and for good reason. In three games, he had a .385 OPS.
Mike Pelfrey, SP In one game, Pelfrey managed a 4.05 ERA, K/9 and BB/9. That's about as Mike Pelfrey as a start can be.
Jason Pridie, CF These were probably Pridie's best five at-bats since he hit a couple of home runs very early in the season.
Jose Reyes, SS Although he's not attempting to steal bases since returning from his second hamstring injury, Reyes got on base this week. Here's hoping for more extra-base hits the rest of the way.
Josh Satin One single in four at-bats.
Chris Schwinden
As far as big league debuts go, this wasn't a great one. The Mets noted his velocity was down and figure it's a sign of fatigue.
Josh Stinson Stinson's first bad outing was particularly bad. Tons of walks resulted in a 13.50 ERA on the week.
Ruben Tejada If you hear anyone seriously talking about Tejada coming into his own for the second base gig in 2012, the past two weeks have been a reminder that he's a huge liability with the bat.
Dale Thayer
The man with the mustache recorded a couple of outs.
Josh Thole, C .200/.200/.200 pretty much says it all.
Justin Turner, 2B After weeks of struggles at the plate, Turner turned in a slash of .526/.571/.632.
David Wright, 3B I think Bill Petti's mentioned the word "volatility" a few times this year.
