Hey Met Fans… Check This Out…

An article by posted on July 8, 2013

I was over at FanGraphs curious to see what Jeremy Hefner‘s WAR (Wins Above Replacement) was for the season for another post I’m working on. While I was there I checked to see who the National League leaders in WAR were.

What a nice surprise…

  1. Carlos Gomez, Brewers – 5.0

  2. David Wright, Mets – 4.5

  3. Adam Wainwright, Cardinals – 4.4

  4. Matt Harvey, Mets – 4.3

  5. Carlos Gonzalez, Rockies – 4.1

What is fascinating to me about that is that three of the top four National League players in the game today were drafted/signed by the New York Mets and developed in their farm system.

That’s a nice feather in the cap for our Amazins….
