Mets Are In A Catchy Situation
If you were paying attention during the fourth inning of today’s Mets broadcast, you would have learned that the Mets catchers lead the National League with 45 runs batted in.
Omir Santos leads the pack with 22, followed by Ramon Castro who knocked in 13 runners before being traded, and Brian Schneider is holding up the rear with 10 ribbies.
Santos is seventh in the league, but when you take a closer look it gets a little interesting. Omir amassed his 22 RBI’s in just 117 at-bats.
Bengie Molina who leads catchers with 40, needed 239 at-bats to achieve the honor. Ivan Rodriguez follows with 29 in 194 at-bats, then comes Ramon Hernandez who has 28 in 215 at-bats.
Another thing that is both interesting and somewhat depressing as well, is that the Mets catching position has accumulated more RBI’s than any other position on the team.
More RBI’s than left field, third base, first base, center field, right field, etc.
A testament to our great catching tandem? Or an indictment on our offense?
I’ll let you decide…
Just as I published this post, Brian Schneider hit a 3-run bomb!!!
Make that 48 RBI’s for Mets catchers!
