The Suckitude Is Widespread, Only One Can Save Us Now

An article by posted on April 21, 2011

This stat comes courtesy of the Daily News today.

According to Runs Saved, a defensive metric invented by John Dewan of Acta Sports that attempts to measure a team’s defense, the Mets are currently the worst defensive team in baseball.

The Mets have a minus-26 runs saved, way in front of the second-worst defensive team, the Phillies (minus-18), and have only two players, Angel Pagan and Pedro Beato, with positive runs saved ratings.

The Rangers are ranked the top glovemen in the game at plus-14 runs saved.

Okay, so lets see if I got this straight…

Offense: Sucks

Pitching: Sucks

Defense: Sucks

Right – Got it.

Sounds like a job for this guy…

Oh Chewy, You’re Our Only Hope…
