The Suckitude Is Widespread, Only One Can Save Us Now

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…
