The offense

Going into spring training this year no one expected the Mets to have a juggernaut of an offense.

The Mets front office did basically nothing to improve the lineup from the year prior, but if everyone were to stay healthy this lineup looked like one that could sit in the upper half of the league in production.

If you look at certain team statistics from this year, you might think the offense has been pretty solid. The Mets currently sit at 13th in runs scored and 10th in home runs, but as you keep digging through the Amazin’s offense, you’ll see some pretty lousy numbers.

The New York Mets sat at 23rd in batting average, 22nd in OBP, and 17th in OPS. The team also currently has two everyday players sitting below the Mason Dixon line in the form of Jose Reyes and Curtis Granderson.
