As I’ve mentioned about a dozen times: Last year the Mets gave 1633 plate appearances to position players that finished with on-base percentages below .300, by far the most in their division.
So far this year: 88, by far the least in their division.
Last year’s Mets offense ranked 26th in the Majors with an 89 OPS+. This year’s Mets offense ranks 7th with a 103 mark. Last year’s team finished 25th in on-base percentage with a .314 rate. This year’s team is fourth, with .335.
