They are 9th in runs scored, 7th in doubles, 2nd in triples, 11th in homers, 9th in rbi’s, and leading the league in stolen bases. They are on a pace to make 744 runs, 1420 hits, 288 doubles, 46 triples, and 130 homers, with 710 rbis, and 154 stolen bases.
The Mets are not scoring runs quite as efficiently as they have in the past, either.
