Note: Mets Offense on the Road

In 14 games on the road, the Mets are just 4-10, they have scored just 49 runs and are hitting a league worst .204.

In addition, the team’s slugging percentage is just .319, almost 100 points lower than their slugging percentage at Citi Field.

…hopefully these numbers can end the debate about how Citi Field steals runs…these numbers are just amazing, but their record away from New York is certainly indicative of these struggles…not that they’ve been an offensive juggernaut at Citi Field, as their struggles with runners in scoring position are universal, but i think this is the result of a combination of things – the Mets don’t hit and run hardly at all, and that could be due to the fact they strikeout so much, but the result of not hitting and running is they are a very station-to-station team on the bases, and so it takes a combination of productive outs and big hits to score even one run, and they’ve been that way for a long time…in addition, the Mets have been out of a lot more of their games on the road due to poor performances by their starters, not that it’s an excuse, but those types of performances, like last night, have to take their toll on the offense, and it most certainly changes a hitter’s mental approach to an at bat…
