For a team that's long been out of the playoff hunt, the Mets have done enough to keep their games interesting lately. With September callups trying to prove themselves for the future and David Wright, Jose Reyes, and R.A. Dickey playing regularly, there's plenty to enjoy in the final few weeks of the year. Also, there are now three guys named Josh on the roster, which probably hasn't happened in a while.

All stats below run from August 27 through September 4.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta, RP Nine strikeouts and two walks will make any TrueSABR blush.
Miguel Batista
The forty-year-old threw six pretty good innings, earning his 100th major league win, otherwise known as MB1C.
Jason Bay, LF Just another week.
Pedro Beato, RP The results were good, but he's still issuing walks at a rate that will eventually catch up to any pitcher.
Tim Byrdak, RP Turns out he's human. Byrdak gave up a run over the span of an inning.
Chris Capuano, SP It was damn near impossible to live up to his previous outing, but Capuano settled down after a rough first inning and threw five good innings in total.
D.J. Carrasco, RP Bad, bad, bad.
R.A. Dickey, SP With one excellent and one good start, the latter on short rest, Dickey had a great week. His walk rate continues to amaze me, and this week was no different with 0.69 BB/9.
Lucas Duda Despite his lack of defensive prowess in right field, which was on full display this week, Duda still mashed. His home run in Washington was ridiculous.
Nick Evans Who didn't get on base a ton, but when he did, he hit for power.
Dillon Gee, SP He gave up four dingers, which is the main reason why his 12 K and 3 BB over 11 innings didn't pan out.
Scott Hairston, OF He's been sidelined on the disabled list for a little while now.
Willie Harris, OF It was just about Harris' best week in a Mets uniform, highlighted by his pinch-hit, two-run single on Sunday.
Daniel Ray Herrera
The diminutive lefty pitched a scoreless inning over two appearances.
Ryota Igarashi, RP After a long stretch of awful pitching, Igarashi notched 4 K with 0 BB in 2.1 innings, and he got a pop up to get out of a bases loaded jam created by Big Pelf.
Jason Isringhausen, RP Last week on the Player Meter: "it's probably a good thing that he's gotten a long break." Izzy struck out the side in his first appearance in over a week. He threw a couple good innings after that, too.
Mike Nickeas
He put down the perfect bunt for a suicide squeeze, but he totaled a .200/.200/.200 line on the week.
Jon Niese, SP
Still on the DL.
Angel Pagan, CF Pagan played in all eight games but hit a Nickeasean .194/.194/.194. Perhaps he needs a day off.
Bobby Parnell, RP Parnell's ERA, K, and BB were all out of wack this week. They'll probably return to normal sooner than later.
Ronny Paulino, C Not much to see here.
Mike Pelfrey, SP His 5.91 ERA over a pair of starts could have easily been even worse, as his walks were at 7.59 per nine.
Jason Pridie, CF Pridie was 0-for-4 without any walks.
Jose Reyes, SS Reyes' return has thus far been unproductive. He had one extra-base hit and didn't draw any walks.
Josh Satin
Satin made his debut in the big leagues and picked up a single in his first at-bat.
Josh Stinson
Called up to the Mets from Binghamton, Stinson began his major league career with 3.2 scoreless innings of work.
Ruben Tejada Tejada's bat has finally returned to our planet. Even his two-run double on Sunday couldn't turn this into a good week at the plate.
Josh Thole, C He only played a bit because he hurt his hand, but getting on base was no problem.
Justin Turner, 2B He only hit singles but managed to get on base at a .348 clip, which is decent enough, I suppose.
David Wright, 3B It was a big week for the "Traid David Wrongz" lobby. He tore the cover off the ball with a 1.402 OPS, which included five doubles, a home run, and six walks.
