Last Minute Statistical Goals

Posted: 10/1/2012 12:04 PM

Last Minute Statistical Goals 


Going into the final three games:

David Wright will hit .300 for the season even if he goes 0 for 12. However, he is 9 ribbies short of 100. He needs 8 total bases in 11 at-bats to get his slugging percentage to .500.

Scott Hairston is one homer short of 20 and needs 6 total bases in 11 at-bats to get his slugging percentage to .500.

Murphy would need to go 6 for 10 to get to .300.

Tejada would need to go 7 for 11 to get to .300.

Davis is one ribby short of ninety. He needs to go 4 for 6 to get to .230.

Duda needs to go 6 for 7 to get to .250 or 2 for 7 to get to .240.

Torres needs to go 6 for 8 to get to .240.

Valdespin needs to go 3 for 5 to get to .250.

Other than Ike and maybe Hairston, none of those are happening. If you like DW getting the sluggig percentage that's doable with a big series. Regardless, very good years for Murph and Tejada.

This has been one of the worst seasons for me as a met fan. I see no upside and more than half of those goals are complete garbage

The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.

LETS GO METS!

This sounds like something Bob Murphy would have said about Alex Trevino in 1979.

Really??

The Mets did not underperform.. they were the mid 70s win team that every realistic observer/fan expected..

Getting a No-Hitter, a 20 game winner, and potentially a Cy Young award.... Throw in Matt Harvey having a dominant MLB debut and Ruben Tejada proving he can fill some of the shoes left by the Mets showing their best player the door....That's a hell of a season for me...

The upsetting part for me as a Mets fan was last offseason, not the season.

Nice to know that Wright will almost certainly hit .300 for the season. It's been a good season for him. Hopefully he can hit another homerun to pad the stats!

Kind of disappointed he didn't get to 100 RBIs though, that number still holds some appeal for me.

Yeah.....300 AVG, 20+ HR, 100 RBIs look nice on the baseballreference stat page.

Part of the reason we all predicted 70-75 wins was because of lack of depth.  But, truth be told, we will end up a 70-75 team because we just stunk offensively, defensively and in the bp.  And, that's why this has been extremely disappointing.  I know we lost Pelfrey, Gee and Johan, but our starting pitching has been quite good.  And, you cant even say that they put a ton of pressure on the bp, because this year, more than any recent year, the starters did yoeman work of putting in solid innings.  i think we wasted a good year starting pitching wise by not making any adjustments to the bp or offense.  Even Chris Young had a really decent year.  That's what bothered me.  All I see is resignation that if we dont have great talent, then, hey, let's just ride out the season and see what happens!  Look at the Orioles, it doesnt take a ton to make adjustments.  Im not saying it would always work, but could we try at leastrolleyes

They tried to revamp the bullpen. It wasn't great but a bit  better than 2011 when it was awful in the 2nd half. The biggest problem is that the bats went cold in the 2nd half. Except for Davis, most of the hitters exceeded expectations before the all-star break and were disappointing after the all-star break.

This season reminds me of '96.  A couple of guys had good seasons (Lance Johnson, Bernard Gilkey, John Franco and Todd Hundley) but the team won 71 games.  Frustrating. 

That team had zero pitching after the legendary Mark Clark, and this team has no offense.

David Wright is not the problem with this team.

Dickey ahs asked to pitch Tuesday....appears the Mets are going to honor that.

The dreaded sig of doom has chosen future hall of famer Jason Heyward as its target.

May the baseball gods have mercy on your soul!

I´d call 2012 a success in terms of the big picture.
The farm system is much improved - with a plethora of young pitching talent up & down all levels.
Matt Harvey has made a rousing debut.
Josh Edgin looks like a legit MLB reliever.
Ruben Tejada has put any doubts to rest that he can be an at least solid starting SS.
David Wright is still David Wright.
Daniel Murphy has become a playable 2bman.
Jon Niese has established himself as one of the better young LHSP in the game and a legit # 2/3 type SP.
RA Dickey has been great all the way.
Ike Davis has redeemed himself in the 2nd half after a disastrous 1st half.
The financial picture is merely a year away from lighting up significantly.

Sure, the W-L record remains disappointing.
But basically this was expected to be a 75-win caliber team that will probably end up with about 75 wins overall.
The next two off-seasons will be crucial. Just like the 2013 season will be about coming up with a homegrown bullpen.
At this point a year from now, we should already have a very good idea about who will be a member of the 2014 bullpen.

I'd add to the above that Bobby Parnell is finally learning to be a pitcher instead of a thrower. Compare him today to where he was a year ago.

The comarison to 1996 is a good one. So is 1983.

No mention there of the OF, which is a disaster.

A no-hitter and maybe a Met Cy Young award winner.

If Jason Bay goes 9-for-9 in the last two games he can get his BA to .200.
