R - 508 (tied 21st)
AVG - .239 (29th)
OPS - .683 (28th)
With David Wright/3B on the DL, there isn't anybody noteworthy in the Mets offensive attack. Marlon Byrd /Rfis having himself a fine season (.283/.844 with 21 HR), but that's pretty much it. Ex-Phillies prospect, Travis d'Arnaud/C, is now splitting time behind the plate with John Buck, but is only 2-18 so far in his MLB career.
ERA - 3.76 (11th)
WHIP - 1.29 (13th)
The Mets bullpen has been weakend with closer Bobby Parnell on the DL. LaTroy Hawkins has taken over save opportunities, but he's not sure thing. Dice-K is a new addition to the rotation, because of an injury to Jeremy Hefner. Matt Harvey would be the favorite for NL Cy Young if not for Clayton Kershaw. Wheeler is a stud rookie that is cementing his spot in the rotation for years to come. Niese is hittable, but has done well against the Phils over the course of his career.
They split the series. I want to say Phils take 3 outta 4, but these teams are fairly evenly matched.
