Analyzing The Mets Offense

Posted on by Kerel Cooper

Last season, the Mets offense was 2nd in the NL in runs scored. Coming into the 2009 season, there are a number of question marks on the offensive side. In my video post, I discuss the offense as it current is put together.

  1. Cooper, you talk about the lack of right hand power. Last year this team was ‘lacking’ power and they still were 2nd in the NL in runs scored. I do not expect Delgado (the mutt) to do anything this year, but I have been wrong before. It is his walk year, so maybe he’ll actually try and play a little ball for the Mets.

    Like most Met fan, I’d love to see Manuelo in a Mets uniform. I actually think its more likely to happen that most realize. The Mets line has been that ‘we are not interested in Manny.’ I honestly think they are only using this tactic to keep his price down. I expect that once the contract talks gets serious, the Mets will step up and land the whale.

    When/If that happens, we will have ourselves a subway series and we all know – the METS are the better team (with Manny).

    Thanks for the comments Ron. I do think the Mets lack a right handed power hitter although the team was 2nd in runs. They had surprisingly good years from players like Tatis who filled in greatly for Alou. The Mets cannot count on Tatis to have another good year. Couple that with Delgado projected to having a down year plus the question marks that are Castillo and Schneider. If the Mets go into 2009 with the line-up they currently have, they will not come in 2nd in runs again.
