Who’s Hot, Who’s Not Last 30 Days

The Mets have been playing much better baseball over the last 30 days and we decided to take a look at who’s hot and who is not over the last 30 days.  With 80 games down and 82 to go the Mets are 10 games under .500 for the year.  Would the continue strong play lead by the pitching staff allow the Mets to finish .500 on the year? 

Who’s Hot Hitting:

  • Josh Satin – .390/.510/0/6 – Josh has hit, walked and played good defense since the call up. He has slowed the return of Ike a bit but this is a good thing. 
  • David Wright – .359/.426/5/12 – David Wright is well, David Wright.  Leader of this team, setting the example.  True All-Star
  • Eric Young – .321/.371/0/10 – Eric has been a spark plug since the Mets traded for him about 14 games ago.  He has played everyday and the results of having speed on the bases has shown up in the record.  Will he be a .300 hitter, probably not, but this has shown what a real leadoff man can bring to this club.  He has also been clutch with 10 RBI’s in 14 games
  • Juan Lagares – .282/.291/0/6 – Juan has hit consistently but still not drawing much walks.  If he can hit .282 and continue to play great defense in CF he needs to continue to play everyday for rest of year to see what we have for 2014
  • Marlon Byrd –  .280/.327/6/15 – If he wasn’t almost 36 years old we would have our power outfielder.  However he is playing both great defense in OF and hitting.  He is going to make a good trade piece and addition to a contender come 7/31

Who’s Hot Pitching:

  • Matt Harvey – 34ip/1.59/2-1 – Has been lights out, should be 10-1 on year.  All-Star Starting pitcher in NY
  • Jeremy Hefner – 37ip/1.70/2-1 – Could be trade bait as he is pitching extremely well
  • Dillon Gee – 33ip/2.73/3-1 – Also could draw trade interest come 7/31.  Between him and Hef the Mets have a solid 4/5 combo for 2014 if no trades are made

Who’s Not Hitting:

  • Daniel Murphy – .236/.282/1/7 – We are still waiting for Murph to get hot again.  Still may be trade bait with Wilmer Flores hitting lights out in AAA
  • Omar Quintanilla – .229/.290/1/11 – His numbers over the last 30 days look poor, but he has hit in the clutch, played great defense and solidified a big whole in the Mets infield since Tejada went down
  • John Buck – .162/.253/2/4 – Well we knew April couldn’t last but we also didn’t think it would get this bag.  Buck is in Ike territory in terms of production, however he has done a great job with pitching staff and is trade bait.  Look for Recker to get a few more starts

Who’s Not Pitching:

  • Zack Wheeler – 16ip/5.06/1-1 – Kid is young
  • Bobby Parnell – 12.2ip/4.26/1-3 – Done a great job in save situations, not so good in non-save
  • Brandon Lyon – 11ip/7.36/0-0 – Went from trade bait to mop up duty

Quick Notes:

  • The Mets pitching has been very strong of late.  Here are some quick #’s
  • Overall Mets have a 3.97 ERA which is 15th in MLB and 9th in NL
  • Starters have a 3.84 ERA which is 10th in MLB and 8th in NL
  • Relievers have a 4.32 ERS which is 12th in MLB and 12th in NL
