  • Mets 2018 Offense - Hitting by Batting Order

    Reading an interesting article this morning about Rosario hitting well as a #9 hitter, while overall not hitting well...

    Rosario is hitting .284 as a #9 hitter, and .300 vs LHP, while not hitting in the other spots in the order and struggling vs RHP; Reyes/Wilmer have also hit decently in there appearances batting 9th (a combined 5 for 12 with 2 walks)...

    Overall, the Mets have a .254 average & .641 OPS from the #9 spot,
    their opponents have a .094 average & a .337 OPS from the #9 spot.

    of course, that means that the Mets #8 spot is going to suffer, but not as horribly as you would expect:

    Mets #8: .156 average; .431 OPS;
    Allowed #8: .279 average; .740 OPS; (which seems a little higher than I would expect vs the #8 hitters);
    NL average for #8: .217 average; .626 OPS;

      Other spots (I'll try to break them down further later on if I get to it):

      Leadoff: horrible average, but we have better OBP/Slugging/OPS than allowed;

      2nd: we are getting outhit in all 4 categories by our opponents;

      3rd: about equal in every category other than batting average (we have the advantage there);

      5th: we're getting beat in all categories there;

      7th: we are doing horrible here:
      Mets: .184 ave; .505 OPS;
      Opp: .257 ave; .505 OPS;

      4th: we are getting crushed there:
      Mets: .177 average; .539 OPS: 1 HR; 9 XBH;
      Opponents: .302 average; .911 OPS; 9 HR; 20 XBH;

      6th: we are doing good here:
      Mets: .287 ave; .887 OPS;
      Opp: .223 ave; .654 OPS;
      AGonz has a .887 OPS with 5 HRs when batting 6th;

        The way Nimmo has been going, he's GOT to be the leadoff guy.

        and, while I don't like the pitcher hitting 8th, the numbers DO show Rosario thrives more there.

            The offense is offensive.

              I am offended by how offensive the offense can be, it simply isn't defensible.

                Analytics....right in my wheelhouse. How did I miss this? This 3 post thread got buried,over the 7 day period before it went dormant, 6 other threads registered 160 posts. 3 of which are still active. Before I chip in Saxon, I don't understand the use of 'allowed' in post 2 & 3.

                  "allowed" means: what did our pitching staff "allow" (similar to ERA is Earned Runs "Allowed", these are the actual offensive percentages allowed)...as in:

                  Mets pitching allowed: .300/.400/.500/.900;
                  Mets offense: .100/.200/.200/.400
                  (numbers are fictional, but feel real)

                  or:

                  Mets: average/OBP/Slug%/OPS;
                  Opponents of the Mets pitching staff: average/OBP/Slug%/OPS

                        Shouldn't the title of this thread be Mets Lack of Offense by Batting Disorder
