Mets Lead The League In Batting (No, It’s Not A Typo)
I was looking at the league leaders while researching for another blog I am composing, and I was shocked to learn that the Mets, yes our Mets, lead the league in hitting.
1. .287 – NY Mets
2. .285 – LA Dodgers
3. .276 – Washington
4. .266 – Houston
5. .263 – Atlanta
6. .262 – Pittsburgh
7. .262 – Philadelphia
8. .257 – St. Louis
9. .255 – Cinncinatti
10. .255 – Milwaukee
The Mets find themseleves in such a lofty position due mostly in part to Carlos Beltran who is batting .370 which is second in the league, and David Wright who is fourth in the league with a .364 batting average.
Want another shocker?
The Mets batters have the fewest strikeouts in the league. As a team the Mets have tallied 227 K’s, and the NL is averaging 284. Florida has the most strikeouts with 337 whiffs. That’s a lot of wind.
