Mets Statistical Roundup- April 20, 2016


Everyone gets a home run!

The Stats:

  • Wright was left out of the homerun derby last night, but did hit his 386th double as a Met, no one is even close, and he continues to put Daniel Murphy (228) and Ed Kranepool (225) in the rearview mirror.
  • Conforto with his second HR of the season moves to nine-way tie for 135th all-time with some favorites from the 2000’s Kaz Matsui, Tyuyoshi Sinjo, Lastings Milledge and Doug Mientkiewicz. His next HR ties him with a couple of HOFers in Rickey Henderson and Joe Torre. Conforto’s 34 RBI’s are good for a four way tie for 204th all time.
  • Duda retains sole possession of the 12th spot on the all-time HR list ahead of George Foster and Bobby Bo, and still climbing on Delgado. Duda (327) at 23rd on the all-time RBI list stays behind the aforementioned Carlos Delgado (339) and John Milner (338).
  • Cepedes moves up on the HR list to an 11 way tie for 71st. He joins two 1986 Mets in Dave Magadan and Danny Heep. His next home run will move him into a tie with Willie Montanez. With 56 RBI’s Yo now has sole possession of 149th on the all-time list.
  • Granderson maintains sole possession of the 37th spot, and needs four to move into a tie with Bernard Gilkey and Frank Thomas. Grandy also keeps sole possession of 62 on the RBI list and needs four to tie Willie Montanez (143).
  • Walker is on fire. He bypassed Vince Coleman and Luis Castillo and vaulted into an 18 way tie for 188th on the HR list. He joins HOFer Tom Seaver and current Duck co-owner Bud Harrleson. His next home run will tie him with Wally Backman and Jose Viscaino. His 11 RBI are good for 324th all-time
  • Although Verrett did not have to be stellar he still put in a good outing, and joins 36 other Mets with two wins. Logan who now has 47 K’s moves out of a tie with current teammate Steven Matz and into a three-way tie for 213th all-time with Bruce Chen and Rick Ownbey.
  • Montero is in a five-way tie for 185th in strikeouts. He joins Kenny Rodgers and could tie Shaun Marcum and Darren Oliver with his next K.
  • Hansel Robles finds himself in sole possession of 161st all-time on the strikeout list and will join Mel Rojas with his next strikeout.

Tonight’s matchup:

  • It’s Big Sexy time tonight, Bartolo sits at an even 300 K for his Met career. It’s a stretch but Glendon Rusch is next with 313. For now Colon is in sole possession of 45th place. He is currently tied with Ray Sadecki with 30 wins, and is two behind recent HOF’er Pedro Martinez. With a win tonight Colon would get sole possession of 34th all time.
  • Familia did not need to pitch last night and stays in sole possession of 12th all time for saves as a Met. He’ll need four to pass Randy Myers.
  • Conforto can tie current teammate Eric Campbell with his next RBI.
  • Granderson will move out of a four-way tie for 57th all-time in doubles and into sole possession of 56th. He needs three to catch HOFer Eddie Murray.
  • Walker can pass Carlos Gomez with his next RBI.
  • Cespedes will tie Tim Bogar with his next HR.

Milestone countdowns for 2016:

  • Wright is on track to break the 1000 mark for Runs (938) and RBI (958) this year.
  • Familia is on pace to put himself into the top 10 for saves as a Met all time, to do that he’ll need to pass Braden Looper who has 57.
