The Mets took two of three games from the Marlins over the weekend. Let’s take a look at how some of their least and most paid players performed during the three games.
Talking about numbers and stats is fun. When you bring the New York Mets into the mix, things can get even more entertaining.
Let’s take the average of how much certain players would have earned over the weekend and compare their earnings to how they performed during the three-game series.
Todd Frazier: $65,000
The ToddFather played in all three games against the Marlins and had a hit in each one. On Friday he went 2 for 4 and scored two runs. On Saturday he went 1 for 4 and walked once while driving in three runs. He also stole a base. On Sunday he went 1 for 4.
In the three games, he went a combined 4 for 12 with two runs scored and three RBI’s.
Devin Mesoraco: $107,000

For someone who made nearly twice as much as Frazier (Not all paid by Mets), Devin didn’t have a great weekend at all. In fact, he only played in one of the three games. Kevin Plawecki played the other two.
Devin played on Saturday and he went 0-4 though he did draw one walk.
Kevin Plawecki: $4,600
Plawecki appeared in two games over the weekend. In his first game on Friday, he went 1 for 3 and he drove in two runs. On Sunday he went 0-4. For $4,600 he went 1-7.
Michael Conforto: $5,000
Conforto really had a brilliant weekend, having outperformed many teammates each of the three days. On Friday he went 1 for 4. He drove in a run, scored once and drew one walk. On Saturday he went 1 for 2. He scored once and walked three times. On Sunday he went 1-4 with a solo home run.
Over the course of those three days, he went 3-10 and reached base a total of seven times.
Wilmer Flores: $28,000
Wilmer got a fair number of hits during his three games. On Friday he went 2 for 5. On Saturday he went 2 for 4 and scored a run. On Sunday he went 0-3 while driving in a run. He didn’t do much in terms of run-producing but hit .333.
Zack Wheeler: $15,600
Wheeler obviously appeared just once over the weekend and had a start to remember. At one point Friday he had a great scoreless streak. He went seven innings and gave up two runs on only four hits while striking out eight.
Seth Lugo: $4,600
Lugo appeared in two games over the weekend and was pretty good in both of them. On Friday he pitched one perfect inning and on Sunday he gave up two hits in a scoreless inning to earn his first save.
Some of the Mets performances over the weekend were great, especially when compared to how much those players make. Others make you question contracts, slumps, and just bad players.
