With the season winding down, the Mets would have to go on a tear to finish at .500. There may be some consolation in the fact that they took two of three from the Braves over the weekend. For those games to really cost the Braves anything, the Mets will have to lose two or three to the Cardinals this week, but that wouldn't be so bad. I'll still be rooting for the Mets to win, but a slightly better spot in the amateur draft and making the Braves squirm for a few more days would both be good things.

All stats below run from September 12 through September 18.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta, RP One ugly outing made for one very ugly week.
Miguel Batista, SP/RP Batista is far more palatable when working only a few innings out of the bullpen.
Mike Baxter, OF 0-for-1. No big deal.
Jason Bay, LF We said meh. M-E-H, meh.
Pedro Beato, RP It's very rarely a good thing that a pitcher's ERA is the same as his uniform number, as was the case for Beato this week.
Tim Byrdak, RP No walks in five appearances with plenty of strikeouts to boot, and the Mets re-upped his contract for 2012.
Chris Capuano, SP Another pretty good start from Capuano brings his innings pitched to 175.1 on the year.
D.J. Carrasco, RP At this point, it's about hoping Carrasco is better in 2012.
R.A. Dickey, SP A pair of starts, including a gem on Saturday that was ruined by the team's inability to score runs against Tim Hudson, made for a great week. Many doubted Dickey's future performance after 2010, but he's damn near matched it.
Lucas Duda, RF The Dude had no problem shaking off a rough week, hitting .417/.517/.583 this time around, including a home run off off Craig Kimbrel. It was only the second bomb Kimbrel allowed all year.
Nick Evans, 1B The cooling off period continues for the invisible first baseman.
Dillon Gee, SP Gee's a capable enough pitcher, but his lone start was a reminder that he's not great.
Scott Hairston, OF It looks like he'll finish the year without playing again.
Willie Harris, OF Just another week in which Harris didn't hit much, but at least he drew some walks this time.
Daniel Ray Herrera The screwballer showed he's human but managed to avoid any major ERA damage.
Ryota Igarashi, RP Even awful relievers are capable of having good weeks.
Jason Isringhausen, RP It'd be surprising to see Izzy pitch again this year.
Mike Nickeas, C Not reaching base is not good.
Jon Niese, SP It may not be official, but Niese's next time on the mound will be next season.
Angel Pagan, CF Supposedly Pagan's dealing with a sore quad. Perhaps that explains the bad week.
Bobby Parnell, RP His line doesn't look so bad, but he got very lucky that two walks didn't come result in runs in Atlanta on Sunday.
Val Pascucci, 1B He got a start a first base, but it'd be surprising to see him get another.
Ronny Paulino, C Paulino's just not playing much, but he was a walking machine when he did, including a big one with Jonny Venters on the mound.
Mike Pelfrey, SP Usually the definition of mediocrity, Pelfrey had one of his best starts of the year.
Jason Pridie, CF Five strikeouts in seven plate appearances. Yikes.
Jose Reyes, SS Watching Reyes hit for average without power and very rare stolen base attempts isn't nearly as exciting as watching Reyes earlier this year.
Josh Satin, IF He didn't reach base in very limited playing time.
Chris Schwinden, SP His second major league start went considerably better than his first.
Josh Stinson, RP It's always good to see a young player bounce back after struggling, and Stinson was just fine this week.
Ruben Tejada, 2B Tejada hit like a big leaguer this week. His Monday through Sunday totals over the past month seem to be either awfully good or just plain awful.
Dale Thayer, RP Two of the seemingly countless pitching changes made by Terry Collins were to Thayer, but his week didn't go well.
Josh Thole, C Relative to his light-hitting peers at catcher, Thole's week looked pretty all right.
Justin Turner, 2B Sure, he drew five walks, but he only hat one hit all week. At least it was a double.
David Wright, 3B Even with a pair of home runs, Wright's production on the week was poor.
