    Mets hit .243 as a team last year with RISP. I'm amazed their offense was as good as it was considering they were leaving a lot of runners on base.

    The OPS is a good take on who the #3 (best run producer) is. It is McNeil. Lindor not so good at all. He is looking more like a 6, 7, 8 guy in this order. Nimmo still looks like #1 hitter because of his ability to get on base. Smith should be a 6, 7 or 8 guy as well. But that .243 means the Mets are an anemic team with RISP.

    Yeah but their offense was still 2nd in the majors according to wRC+. They will hit. Do I wish they were better in high leverage situations? Sure but they'll score runs.

    I don't care if we got blown out or not. Baseball is back and I'm pumped.

    Kevin Pillar is exactly the type of "scrapper" this team needs. He seems to have quality AB's almost every time.

    Our lineup is as deep and balanced as it's ever been. Our bench has veteran talent. We're going to make pitchers and entire staffs work hard, grinding them down in games and through the course of series'. Also, our best hitters -- Conforto, Lindor, Alonso, McCann and Smith -- are coming into their primes, and will likely be better situationally. All of which should translate to overall better "clutch" numbers.

    Not AVG. but last year (remember, SSS) we were 30th, leaving an average of 3.77 RISP per game. For context...
    In 2019 we were 14th.
    In 2018 we were 10th.
    In 2017 we were 5th.

    We were also last in overall LOB per game in 2020, (the 3 years prior we were typically in the middle of the pack). Interestingly, ATL was next to last in this category, showing that very good offenses strand a lot of runners.

    All this despite the 2020 Mets leading the majors in AVG and hits, and being 4th in total bases (we were 17th in BBs per game).

    The poor 2020 RISP numbers were likely affected by the fact that we also led the majors in grounding into DPs per game, a stat that is a bi-product of lack of team speed. Not having Ramos, who was good for 15-20 GIDPs per full season, should help. Otherwise our overall speed amongst starters (the bench seems stronger and Lindor is a better baserunner than Rosario but overall speed is probably very close) hasn't changed a lot

    I'm also guessing a lot of runners were stranded (looking at you, Pete, JD, Dom and Ramos, etc.) because they were too slow to score from second on a single or tag from 3rd on mid-range fly balls.
    Last year we were surprisingly middle of the pack in Sac flies but in the full 2019 season we were dead last.

    I think lack of team speed and high K rate players (power over quality ABs) are RISP killers more than the idea of clutch, which has shown little consistency amongst individuals over a course of years, vs. one season. Perhaps more mature players will improve the quality of their ABs according to the situation.

    Nimmo will walk into 25 HRs with 600 PAs.

    30 isn't out of the question.

    Betances looks like Familia without the good stuff.
