Stat: Endy Since Alou's Injury

Since Moises Alou hit the disabled list with a sore quad, Mets OF Endy Chavez is batting .288 with three extra base hits.

However, if you eliminate his 4–for-5 day against the Yankees, he’s hitting only .234 and has just six hits in his last 33 at-bats.

he’s looked especially off during his last three games…we’ve been over this before…i have always been on the side that says chavez is best suited as an everyday bench player, a super utility guy, and that he will struggle as a starter…why…because he is a smart kid, and i think when put in a specific situation, that calls for him to be a certain way, he delivers, yet when given the freedom to be a starter he fails…so, he and the Mets know to play to his strength

Interestingly, Chavez is 7–for-14 when leading off an inning, but has yet to score after reaching base.
