David Wright and Curtis Granderson.
Offense: D (1.0)
The New York Mets rank 20th in runs scored, 21st in on-base percentage, 27th in batting average and OPS and 30th in slugging percentage. Curtis Granderson, the team's big offseason addition, is hitting .200 with six home runs, 24 RBI and a .666 OPS. Only two players—40-year-old Bobby Abreu and Eric Campbell, both part of platoons in right field and at first base, respectively, have mustered an OPS above .800.
Rotation: B (3.0)
Despite being without the ace of the staff, Matt Harvey, the Mets rotation has been solid, ranking 14th in ERA (3.83) and 12th in WHIP (1.28). Both Dillon Gee (2.73 ERA, 1.06 WHIP) and Jonathon Niese (2.74 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) have been outstanding, while prospect Jacob deGrom (2.42 ERA, 1.08 WHIP) looks like another keeper.
Bullpen: B- (2.75)
New York loses points for the disaster that has been the ninth inning, with the Mets converting only 58 percent of their save opportunities. But the group has also been highly effective when it comes to keeping inherited runners at bay, doing so 88 percent of the time, the second-best mark in baseball.
Defense: C (2.0)
Only New York's outfielders, Curtis Granderson, Juan Lagares, Chris Young and Eric Young Jr., have been above-average with the glove. David Wright, with a pair of Gold Glove awards on his resume, has been mediocre at best.
Overall: C- (2.19)
The Mets' offensive woes have wasted some strong pitching performances, as has the team's sketchy ninth-inning situation, which hopefully can be solidified by former starter Jenrry Mejia. But it's going to take continued success on the mound, along with a new approach at the plate, for things to change.
