Mets Pitching Seems Relevant Too

Some Surprising Pitching Stats as of April 29th–Mets Lead the MLB in Strikeouts

The Mets as a team have an ERA of 3.06, which is the third best in the major leagues, behind the Cardinals with 2.58 and the Giants with 2.78. They have given up fewer home runs this year than any other team, except the Cardinals. The Cards have given up 9 homers while the Mets have given up 12.  The Mets pitchers are in a tie for first with four complete games, and lead the majors in strikeouts with 183.  They also are second behind the Angels in innings pitched with 203. Combine that with clutch hitting and solid fielding and running and it explains why, at least for now, the Mets are flying high.

    Amazin’ isn’t it?
    …and, remember Omar’s big pitching signing over the winter? Oh that’s right, we didn’t have one. But he did sign a knuckle baller, R.A. Dickey, that everyone scratched their collective heads over. After surrendering a first inning hit, he retired his next 27 batters in a Buffalo game this past week. Amazin’!
