Through the First Tenth

Through the first tenth of the season:

The Mets have scored 97 runs and given up 47 runs, the highest and lowest totals in the league in both categories.  No team in history has ever come close to scoring twice as many runs as they’ve given up.

The Mets have the highest team batting average and the lowest team E.R.A. in the league.  They’ve certainly never ended a season with the best numbers in the league in both of these two categories.

A Met now leads the league in batting average, rbis, runs, triples, and stolen bases.  Three of the five players in the National League with the highest batting average are Mets.

4 Mets starting pitchers have at least 2 wins one tenth of the way through the season.  4 Mets pitchers therefore project to win at least 20 games,  Obviously that won’t happen, but it is very rare for 4 starting pitchers to have at least 2 wins one tenth of the way through the season. 

If the season ended today, Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes would be the two strongest MVP candidates.
