Monday catch-all thread (10/21/19)

Back in 2016, the Mets struggled so much with RISP, having the worst numbers since the expansion Padres in 1969 through most of the season. Their strong kick which allowed them to make the playoffs happened as they started performing well in the category the final month of the year.

We didn’t talk much about RISP performance this past year, so let’s check in and see how the Mets did in various categories in this split. Here are their ranks in the National League:

PA – 8th (1556)
Runs – 8th (538)
OPS – 7th (.799)

Middle of the pack sure beats in the running for worst mark in 50 years.

The Nationals saw their OPS in RISP rise from .785 to .887 to claim the top spot in the league. However, the NL as a whole saw its OPS rise 46 points in the category in 2019. The Braves finished first in 2018 and dropped to sixth place in OPS this past season. The Phillies had a 12th-place finish in 2019 after finishing fifth in 2018.

Of the Mets who had the top 10 most PA with RISP, Brandon Nimmo had the best mark with a 1.067 OPS, followed closely by Jeff McNeil with a 1.064 mark. Robinson Cano had the worst with a .601 OPS.

    I was wundering what our topic of the was going to be.

    The most important factor in a long time was yesterday’s what I would call macro planning then having the courage to alter your genius plan when needed.

    But today’s RISP stat hit me like brick. Cano’s turn around is perhaps the most important factor for next year’s team.

    It’s more important that they treat a Cano Turn-around as a surprise, versus penciling it in and Praying for it.

    More important…. Identify the SP innings and Personnel…..Cure the Bullpen.
