Here are some relevant pitching rankings for the Mets in terms of place in the National League thus far:
Team ERA: 6thMy Take: This pitching staff could be in for a severe regression based on these stats.
Team xFIP: 14th
Team FIP: 10th
But what about the offense?
Team wOBA: 13th
Team OBP: 13th
Team SLG: 12th
Omar Minaya has another month and a half to see where the Mets stand.My Take: The offense will continue to get better as Reyes, Bay and maybe even Beltran return and play as they are expected, but as it stands now, they are in the bottom four of the National League.
My take, Big Picture: As I have said all year, the Mets are between an 83 and 85 win team; but let's see what the next 45 days hold before we rush out and mortgage the future for C Lee or Westbrook or Millwood.
