2010 Mets Player Evaluations

While the Mets continue their GM hiring charade (c’mon, was there ever a question once Sandy Alderson emerged as a candidate?) for the foreseeable future, we will individually review the 2010 performances of the players currently on the Mets roster. This way, when Alderson the next Mets GM arrives at his office in Flushing, he’ll have something to chew on.

Please note that although some pedestrian stats may be cited here and there, for the most part we will not be focusing on hard-core statistics. If sabermetrics is your cup of tea, I strongly recommend that you check the numbers provided by Fangraphs and/or the excellent stat-focused articles on Amazin’ Avenue.

Our first analysis will be on Manny Acosta, and we’ll go through the rest of the evaluations in alphabetical order, starting with the pitchers, following with the catchers, proceeding with the anicillary position players, and finishing with the coaching staff — or at least, what’s left of it by the time we get that far.

Looking forward to reading your comments.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
