Let's take a peek at where the Mets stand against the rest of baseball.
Thus far in 2010, the Mets:
- Have allowed the fewest Stolen Bases in baseball, 3 steals against 3 caught. Contrast this with the Red Sox who have allowed 34 steals and only 1 caught stealing.
- 9th in Team ERA at a solid 3.47.
- Struck Out the second most batters--testament to some very strong pitching early in the year.
- 12th in Batting Average Against--just .247.
- 22nd in Homeruns with just 12 on the season. After a spring in which balls were flying out of the park, we are once again seeing a shortage of power.
- 25th in Team Batting Average at a paltry .229. The Dodgers lead all of baseball at .311.
- 27th in OPS...ugh.
- 27th in Extra-Base Hits with only 35. Toronto has 67 to lead MLB.
- Struck Out 5th most--a maddening 120 Ks already on the young season. Medic!
