Mets Stat Of The Day
Terry Collins indicated that Eric Young Jr. may be the leadoff hitter this season. Mets fans were quick to react negatively. Let's take a look at the best leadoff hitters in Mets history and see how those teams fared.
We all know that Yankee Stadium has a short right field porch and that Curtis Granderson is a left-handed hitter who surely took advantage of that. How many of those Stadium home runs would have been homers at Citi?
It is not only the inning a reliever enters that counts. The batters they face in the opposing team's lineup is something to consider. Bobby Parnell had the best success against the best hitters in 2013.
Stephen Drew didn't have a spectacular season with the Red Sox in 2013. But you would be surprised how high it ranks in the context of Mets history for shortstops.
