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…
Carlos Gomez, Brewers – 5.0
David Wright, Mets – 4.5
Adam Wainwright, Cardinals – 4.4
Matt Harvey, Mets – 4.3
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….
