How Mets Rankings in National League Highlight Recent Struggles | Giant Mess

In this clip from “Giant Mess”, New York Mets fan Neal Lynch takes a closer look at how the team’s rankings in the National League highlight areas that need improvement, including:

  • Pitching – home runs per 9 innings pitched, walks per 9 innings pitched
  • Batting – runners left on base, lack of slugging, lots of walks
  • Wins Above Average by Position
  • Starting Pitching – among the worst
  • Relief Pitching – among the best
  • Catchers – we’re sorely miss Omar Narvaez
  • First Basemen – Pete Alonso continues to crush it
  • Second Basemen – Jeff McNeil and Luis Guillorme
  • Third Basemen – Eduardo Escobar drove score down, Brett Baty’s helped increase that number
  • Shortstops – Francisco Lindor is still an exceptional player
  • Left Fielders – Mark Canha needs to step up
  • Center Fielders – Brandon Nimmo is an MVP candidate
  • Right Fielders – Starling Marte hasn’t been what he was
  • Designated Hitters – a glaring concern for most before the season, that position is holding its own
  • Pinch HItters – Bench bats haven’t produced

I’m an Irish-Italian-American who graduated from 1) a Catholic high school (even though I’m not Catholic), and 2) a college known for producing doctors and lacrosse players, then became neither. Former college quarterback and pitcher turned over-thinker. Instead, I’m a blogger, vlogger, podcaster, writer, editor, optimizer, strategist, analyst, and failed stand-up comedian.

“Giant Mess” is a sloppy sports and entertainment talk show that covers the New York Giants, Mets, movies, and TV with some funny stories and life lessons along the way. It’s hosted by a giant mess, the Real Cinch Neal Lynch.
